The tweet from the executive said that the Taiwan based OEM needs more time to re-test the update.

This is the second recent disappointment for Verizon customers that Mackenzie passed along by tweet. Back in August, Mackenzie told owners of the Verizon exclusive HTC DROID DNA to expect Android 4.3 before the end of September. Late last month, the whole story changed with a tweet from the executive telling DROID DNA owners that they will receive Android 4.2.2 before the end of the year.
