Re: 4.4.3 rolling out now
Here is the post this morning on the AC front page: Sprint: New Nexus 5 update rolling out today | Android Central
4.4.3 has been rumored to be circulating internally at Google for testing, so seeing Sprint announce an update doesn't surprise me.

Re: Nexus 5: 4.4.3 rolling out now
This is how Google releases updates Over the Air (OTA) from a old article from the last Android update article last year.;
Recently, a Google engineer cleared the process up for Nexus users, giving them a detailed look at how Google rolls out its Android software to Nexus devices. Here is what he had to say:
Rollouts are conducted in phases. Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 – 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing looks wrong before sending it to more. Then typically it goes to 25%, 50%, 100% over the course of a week or two.
What the percentages mean is that when your device checks in, it has a 1% chance (for example) of being offered the OTA. If it doesn’t (randomly) get an offer, it will never get an offer until the next batch.
OH, once your device checks in and gets turned down, that’s it until the next batch. Mashing on the “check for updates” button just causes your device to check in again, and get automatically turned down again. Think about how that makes your device feel! WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE PHONES?!
That said, once the new batch does start, hitting that button does give you a new roll of the dice — but once. Since devices usually only check in for system updates every 24 hours (I think? Certainly on a many-hours basis) this can get you your shot sooner than it would happen on its own.
So, mash away. Just be patient, and mashing on it more often than once or twice a day isn’t going to gain you anything.
Something that Nexus 5 owners should keep in mind today and over the next week or so. Typically, roll outs take about a week or so to finish up so those waiting for the upgrade Over-the-Air could be in for a bit of a wait

Re: Nexus 5: 4.4.3 rolling out now
I can hardly wait for the update. The bluetooth experience on my Play Store-purchased Nexus 5 has gotten progressively weirder for a couple of months. And the camera bug keeps kicking in and eating my wife's battery charge. Had they presented these as a beta release in November, I might have made a different decision. Certainly a better informed one.
