HTC One gets its chocolatey KitKat update in Canada despite talk of delay
Despite talk of a one to two week delay in pushing out the Android 4.4.2 update and Sense 5.5 to the HTC One in the U.S. (and Canada), it appears that some Canadian users received the update on Friday. Those sporting HTC's flagship Android handset on Rogers, Bell, Virgin, TELUS, SaskTel and WIND have reported receiving the update.

What this means for those in the U.S. is not clear. A tweet sent Wednesday by the President of HTC Americas, Jason Mackenzie, revealed that HTC would be missing its self-imposed 90 day deadline on providing the update to carrier branded versions of the HTC One. That 90 day period started on October 31st and expires today.

Downloaded it this morning!

Little tweaks here and there - nothing mindblowing - but better than nothing I guess!

My One is still on 4.3, but I have a Nexus 7 on 4.4, and I honestly don't notice much of a difference anyway. The launcher would be the main thing, but we have sense anyway (which already has the coveted transparent status bar) and stock 4.4 doesn't come with that new Google launcher either. I'm still looking forward to my 4.4 update though. It's always nice to feel up to date.
