  1. Motorola has become the first manufacturer to deliver an Android 4.4 KitKat update to a device that isn’t a Nexus and on Verizon no less. Understandably, Motorola is pretty happy with themselves but, it seems like they have bigger plans for Android 4.4 and a whole host of older devices. Those using a Motorola device before the Moto X and Google came along could very well have a reason to smile today, and it might make getting to upgrade time that little bit easier. Motorola’s support site has been updated with some info about upcoming software updates for a number of devices, as Android Police
  2. Capping off a busy day chock-full of KitKat news, Google has just released a new build of Android 4.4 to the AOSP servers and various recent Nexus devices. The new build comes in at version KRT16S, and it replaces the older KRT16O build. The KRT16S update is currently available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 – all variants), Nexus 7 (2013 – all variants), and Nexus 10. Curiously left out, however, is the Google Nexus 5, which features a different build altogether (KRT16M). Also of note, this new KRT16O build is unrelated to the mystery KOT31B build seen a week and a half ago on the C
  3. According to T-Mobile, November 20th is one of the release dates for the Nexus 5. That is the day the device will make it to T-Mobile stores; however, if you want to get it a bit earlier, the device will be on sale through T-Mobile's website starting November 14th. Of course, as was the case with the Nexus 4, unless you really need to be on T-Mobile's equipment installment plan, you might be better off buying the Nexus 5 directly from Google and just getting the SIM from T-Mobile. Directly from Google, the Nexus 5 will set you back just $350 (plus taxes and shipping), but you would hav
  4. Android 4.4, also known as KitKat, is the most recent version of Google’s popular operating system, and it’s already shipping in several new devices around the world. But what about the 900 million or so Android devices that have been sold to date? How do you know if your phone or tablet will get a sweet KitKat upgrade? Here's a guide to the major manufacturers and their KitKat roadmaps so far. Google The Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, will all receive the KitKat upgrade. Motorola Motorola is primed to show off the latest and greatest facets of Android and the new KitKat operating system. I
  5. Motorola XT1032 has made its way on the internet through various leaks. Yesterday it popped up on GFX Benchmark's database. Its scorecard has revealed the device comes with a 720p display and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor and Adreno 305 GPU. The Android version in charge is 4.4 KitKat. Today Amazon UK has listed the XT1032, revealing its price. The smartphone is said to cost £160 with an expected release date of November 13. The description of the phone clearly states this is indeed the Motorola Moto G but sheds no light on the spec

    HTC M8 specs leaked

    The device looks to be quite similar to the HTC One, but with a black case instead of the silver, but we didn't really know what to expect from the device specs until now. the potential leaked specs are pretty bare bones and don't really reveal anything we couldn't have guessed for ourselves. According to Evleaks, the HTC M8 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, and be running Android 4.4 KitKat. The only real surprise there is KitKat, but the additions of Android 4.4 will be hidden a bit given the device will be skinned with Sense, which is rumored to be vers
  7. Google has announced that the new Android KitKat operating system will begin rolling out to Google’s own tablets starting today. The rollout process will likely be completed over a period of time. Android 4.4 will be reaching the Nexus 7 (both last year’s model and this year’s new model) and the Nexus 10. KitKat brings several improvements to Android, including changes to Google Now, SMS integration with Hangouts, and general performance enhancements. Google says KitKat for the Nexus 4 and cellular-enabled Nexus 7 is coming soon. Original Article
  8. Early benchmark results are often a good way of discovering whether a new device is being tested out, and with talk currently rife regarding Samsung’s next batch of flagship smartphones, benchmarks found over at GFXBench could already show the full list of specs of the Galaxy S5. The S4 only arrived in the late spring, but with sales having not reached expectations, the Korean company is said to be working doubly hard on its eventual successor. According to the GFXBench results, the device will boast the latest and greatest Android 4.4 KitKat, a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz as w
  9. We have been looking forward to the announcement of a new Nexus 10 for quite a while now. For those of you who have been following the news closely, you'll remember that the Nexus 10 went out of stock back in October and hasn't come back since. Now, a new rumor is claiming that the new Nexus 10 tablet will be released tomorrow, Cyber Monday. Unfortunately, there is nothing concrete about this rumor, and it still leaves a couple big questions hanging over the new tablet, like what the specs may be. The biggest question is of course what hardware manufacturer will be Google's partner on
  10. Google Now is a lot like Apple's Siri: it responds to voice commands and can perform lots of cool and practical functions. if you invoke the help command or look at Google's own support page, you'll get only an abbreviated list of the available voice actions. However, there's a new infographic listing around 60 new Google Now voice commands, everything from Communication to Notes & Reminders to Easter Eggs. Here's the full infographic. Chances are good you'll learn some new ways to get more from Google Now. And if you know of any other commands not listed here, by all means sha
  11. A company called OptoFidelity conducted some tests using its own OptoFidelity VideoMultimeter and various versions of the Nexus 7 tablet. The tests revealed that video playbacks look better on Android 4.3 than on Android 4.4. Even stranger, the best picture was seen on the older version of the Nexus 7 powered by Android 4.3. Three points were measured in the test. The first was deviation, which shows on the screen as a jerking motion. The second test was deviation from fps rate. The average frame rate was compared to the expected speed. Each percentage point off from the expected rate result
  12. There are a lot of new commands that connect directly to new cards that you would find, like asking "Where's my package?" to get tracking info, or "What's my schedule look like?" to get your Calendar events. Google Now has also added in new prompts when sending emails or texts to help get the message you want to the right place. And, of course there are all of the various new uses of pronouns so you can link together searches to get deeper or related information on a topic. The tests were done on a Nexus 5 running Android 4.4, but most of the commands are available to anyone on Android 4.1
  13. Google has announced Android 4.4 KitKat, and it is a fairly big update to the world’s most popular platform, but question remains: when will you be able to get it? It’s a tricky one as always with Android. Google claimed it has made huge optimizations to the platform and its core apps so even devices with 512MB of RAM (the overwhelming majority of Androids across the world are actually low-end devices with 512MB of RAM) can have a good, smooth Android experience. The new Android 4.4 KitKat however still seems to be coming first and only to the top-shelf devices. Here is the list of p
  14. A Samsung software engineer with knowledge on the subject claims that both devices (Galaxy S3 and Note 2) will be updated in late Q1 of this year, not long after the expected Galaxy S4 KitKat rollout. The update will include performance tweaks and updates, and a few new software features. The transparent status bar, new print feature from settings, and immersive full-screen mode will be included. The KitKat update for the S3 and Note 2 is expected to be outed in phases, which means that carrier branded variants will likely receive the update as much as a full month later. Source
  15. LG is planning to skip the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for some of its smartphones and move them straight to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. According to the report, many of LG's devices will be going straight to Android 4.4, skipping right over Android 4.2 and Android 4.3 in most cases. Among the models cited by our source are the LG Optimus F3, LG Optimus F6, LG G Pad 8.3 (including Verizon model), LG G Pro Lite, LG Optimus F7, LG-D315 (unannounced), LG LS740 (LG Optimus F3 successor), LG Optimus L9 II, LG Optimus Vu II, LG Vu III, and LG G Flex. The LG Optimus 4X HD will be stic
  16. Earlier today, we saw some pictures that seemed to be the fabled Android-powered Nokia Normandy (aka the Nokia A110) going through the hoops of the AnTuTu benchmarking suite. Now, prolific leaker Evleaks has released a few more pictures of the Normandy. The last set of pictures just looked like any other Nokia Lumia device, but these actually show screenshots of what Nokia's skinned Android might look like. Last month we learned the codenamed Normandy device is supposed to be an entry-level Android smartphone. The leaks suggested Normandy will be reusing the iconic Lumia design and will come
  17. There has been quite an uproar over HTC announcing that its One X and One X+ flagships from 2012 won’t be receiving any updates anymore, and for good reason. Its latest update was Android 4.2.2, which arrived more than a year ago. I find it unacceptable that we’re not getting updates at the very least for that 18 months period they promised us for flagship devices (which really should be applied to all devices, but that’s a discussion for another time). I’ve said it before, but that 18 months period of updates, should really refer to Google’s 18 months of updates after the OEM’s phones are la
  18. HTC has always been considered to be sloppy when it comes to updating their (almost) a year old devices to the latest Android iteration. This time around, they have been quick to update their current flagship – the HTC One – to Android 4.4 KitKat, and have been following suit with the HTC One Mini and the HTC One Max. However the older and somewhat lesser known sibling in the HTC One series – the HTC One X+ will not be getting a taste of Kit Kat. An enthusiastic owner of the HTC One X+ sought clarification from HTC Denmark in regards to this subject. That was when a gloomy tweet was sent out
  19. Good news for Samsung Galaxy S4 owners - well, at least for those having the GT-i9500 model. It appears that Samsung has begun testing Android 4.4 KitKat for the i9500, so an official update might be released soon. That’s according to SamMobile, which is usually spot on with details regarding Samsung’s plans. However, it’s been noted that KitKat for the S4 GT-I9500 isn’t “stable enough” yet, so Samsung may still have some work to do. Back in December, we told you that French carrier SFR was expecting KitKat to hit the Galaxy S4 at the end of January (this month). The update for the Gal

  21. Motorola is now seeding the official Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update to the dual-SIM version of Moto G. It is available over the air and weighs about 230MB. Currently the update is seeding in Malaysia, but we expect other markets to get it very soon. Just as on the other Moto G versions, the update brings Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Project Svelte optimizations, new Dialer app, updated Hangouts with SMS/MMS support, updated Google Now and the latest version of Google's Photo gallery with Auto Awesome feature, if not installed already. The standard model of Motorola Moto G has
  22. Samsung's US team released a list of devices that are getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update, putting their users' minds at ease. What about the international versions of the phones though? A blogger in Poland got in touch with a local Samsung representative and found out. Here's the list: Samsung Galaxy Note 3Samsung Galaxy S4Samsung Galaxy S4 ActiveSamsung Galaxy S4 MiniSamsung Galaxy S4 ZoomSamsung Galaxy Note IISamsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1Samsung Galaxy Mega 6
  23. Got a Nexus 5? Then you must be reading this post If you’re a diehard Android fan, then the Nexus 5 definitely caught your eye. Although it’s only been publicly available for just shy of three weeks, the LG-manufactured Nexus 5 is already making its way to the top of holiday season shopping lists for consumers all over the globe. Those who are lucky enough to already own the device are seemingly full of praise for the latest in the Nexus smartphone range, but a number of concerns have been expressed, including the performance of the built-in camera as well as the tragically low speaker vol
  24. Two separate images allegedly of the Nexus 10 (2013) were leaked this weekend on Reddit. One comes from a Telefonica employee said to be disgruntled with the company and unhappy with his job. That render shows a thinner bezel and what appears to be a front-facing speaker on the top of the slate. The image shows the tablet running the Google Experience launcher on Android 4.4. The second image shows that the device is made by LG. Samsung produces the current version of the tablet. According to this particular leak, the tablet has the model number of LG-V510. That model turned up on a B
  25. HTC unveiled the Droid DNA in late November 2012 with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Sense 4.0. The smartphone has since been updated to 4.3 Jelly Bean and Sense 5, but starting tomorrow it will get yet another major update. The update will bring Android 4.4.2 KitKat and Sense 5.5 (not Sense 6 like on the new HTC Ones). The Executive Director of Product Management at HTC made the announcement that the update has received technical approval and will roll out over the air starting April 24. DNA Owners! Appreciate your patience, we have technical approval for OS 4.4.2 + Sense 5.5. Expect OTA upd
