You can get a developer preview, but honestly, unless you are a developer or at least have a solid working knowledge of the Android OS (and I don’t mean that you know where the settings are), it’s probably best to wait. As far as I know, you also need either a Nexus 5 or 7 to run it. If you really want it, here is the info on how to download and setup the SDK.
