[Update: OTA Available!] HTC One Google Play Edition Now Receiving Android 4.4.2 OTA, Framework and Kernel Source Available
Update: The OTA URL has now been captured for your sideloading pleasure, thanks to XDA Forum Member Sapplegater.
Just a few short days ago, we saw Android 4.4.2 roll out to the current Nexus fleet. And two days after that, Google published the source code and factory restore images for this latest version. Now, we’re happy to report that the Android 4.4.2 update has now begun rolling out to the Google Play edition of the HTC One.
The update comes in the form of a staged rollout, so not everyone will receive the update immediately. However, we’ll be sure to report back as soon as the update links are captured. However, that’s not all the news. In addition to rolling out the update to end users, HTC has also released the GPL-compliant kernel source code for the Android 4.4.2 update, as well as proprietary framework files for the device.
Developers looking to start building Android 4.4.2 from source for the HTC One should make their way over to the HTCDev Devcenter download links below:

If so, or if you’re impatiently waiting for your turn, be sure to share your experiences in the comments below. Also make your way to this thread in the the HTC One forums to get your hands on the OTA URL as soon as it is captured.

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
