New updates are being rolled out for Android Mobiles now
Google nexus 5 became the first mobile with Android 4.4 (kitkat) operating system. As we know, Google’s devices get the all the android updates first, thereafter it gets rolled out for other devices. After Google Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Motorola Moto X are getting Android 4.4, kitkat. Users from all regions might not be able to update now, but it has already been rolled out. Gradually it will be available for all Moto X and Nexus 4 users. These users should be happy, at least they are going to get Android 4.4 soon, but owners of the other mobiles are still waiting to hear anything about this. HTC will start rolling out Android 4.4 from January 2014, so HTC users need to have a little more patience.
Well, some users are eager to get Android 4, but let me remind you that Android 4.3 is still not available for many Android phones. There is a good news for Galaxy Note II users. Android 4.3 (jelly bean) has been rolled out for Note II users. This update is not available in all regions like Android 4.4, but it will be available soon. All users with Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be glad about it, because this will resolve the compatibility issue of Galaxy Gear smartwatch with Galaxy Note II. This update can’t really make your Note II exactly a Note III device, but you will get some more features for sure.
However, Sony mobile is still running behind.
