Soak test for T-Mobile users of the Motorola Moto X points to Android 4.4.2 on the way
To take part in a soak test you need to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network. And if you are selected to be part of this soak test, or any soak test, you must promise to keep any information relating to it confidential.
Since this model has already been updated to Android 4.4, and other Moto X models have been updated to Android 4.4.2, you can pretty well guess what update is coming to the T-Mobile version of the Motorola Moto X. And now that Motorola has started lining up soak testers, the actual update is probably not that far away.

other Android OEM's need to get on Motos level when it comes to updates.

For real. The closest right now is HTC, but they haven't even gotten 4.4 to the One on carriers. Granted, they are within their own time frame, aside from the delay caused by the carriers.
Motorola has really stepped their game up, I hope Lenovo doesn't undo all the progress made this year. If Motorola does end up slipping, I'm back to HTC after a 3 year break, because they show the most promise.

You can't really blame HTC for delay on the part of the carriers. I doubt that HTC could go the Google Play route for a full scale OS update, so the responsibility for the delay points back to the carriers.

I blamed the carriers in the sentence after that, but I can't help but put a little bit of fault on HTC. Motorola has somehow dealt with the carriers effortlessly, the *Verizon* Moto X got KitKat before some unlocked Nexus. I know it's not exactly fair to compare nearly stock devices to OEM-skinned ones, but the carrier certification process should be about the same for all Android devices, and Motorola apparently really hit the carriers hard.

KitKat 4.2.2 leaked for AT&T two days ago. Right now it's a battle between HTC and Samsung to release KK to their flagships.

This is due to Google effect I think so. Let's see now onwards from Lenovo's side.

+1. Somehow, I doubt Lenovo will be able to push the updates out as quickly as when Moto was part of Google. Sad. I can't say this is progress. :-(
