HTC Sheds Light on KitKat Update Timetable

Yesterday, Motorola shared some insight into its Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade plans. They added some devices to the update list, and they even began the KitKat rollout to the Verizon variant of their flagship Moto X. Today, HTC has followed suit by elucidating on their update plans.

Not too long ago, HTC publicly stated that they had already delivered the KitKat code for the HTC One Google Play edition to Google. While the update is still yet to be seen, we can only assume that it will make its way to users quite soon. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the standard version of the HTC One. However, HTC’s Jason Makenzie had previously stated the company’s plans on updating all North American carrier variants within 90 days of KitKat’s October 31st release.

Now, HTC has set a firm date on its update plans for both the carrier-branded variants of the HTC One and the Droid DNA. According to HTC’s Twitter page, the One will see official KitKat love by the end of January, and the DNA will receive the goods by the end of Q1 2014. But after the One’s delayed update to Android 4.3, let’s just hope this doesn’t become another HTC Thunderbolt situation.

Are you happy with HTC’s proposed timetable? Let us know in the comments section below.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

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...
