Android L: The new UI ups the polish

Another year, but not just another Android: The new Android L mobile OS, due this fall, promises to bring Android's UI to a more sophisticated level, while also reducing the platform's infamous fragmentation. I installed the very first developer preview on a Nexus 5 to see the new Android L in action. What you see here is that very first version, which is sure to go through changes before the formal release. This is the first taste, not the final meal.
