KitKat coming soon to Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 says Rogers

KitKat coming soon to Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 says Rogers
Canadian carrier Rogers has updated its OS Upgrade support page on its website, and guess what? It's good news for those who use the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in Rogers' neighborhood. The page now shows the Android 4.4 KitKat update "coming soon" for both top-shelf devices. The page also reveals that the HTC One mini will be receiving Android 4.4 late this month. According to a leaked HTC update roadmap we passed along last month, the byte-sized version of the HTC One will receive Android 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5.

Android flavored handsets aren't the only models getting updated at Jolly Rogers. Coming soon is the GDR3 update for a couple of Windows Phone 8 handsets. The models that will soon be updated are the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung ATIV S. Among the new features will be one that allows Data Sense to block streaming in the background while roaming. Stopping the ol' data meter from running while roaming could save you enough money to make Scrooge McDuck envious.

The 4.4 update for AT&T leaked last week. You can flash it if you really wanted to. People have been saying it's flawless and silk smooth. Only downside is you can't downgrade because of a new boot loader.

Kitkat 4.4 has got to be the slowest or one of the slowest updates of all times to get Android devices, how long has this update been out?, yet its only available on a very few select of overall Android devices. Talk about snail pace.

Blame lazy manufacturers and those brainless who still buy carrier branded devices.
