Galaxy Nexus owners petition Google's Sundar Pichai over Android 4.4 KitKat
One such owner has taken action onto the web, to ask for support for his petition to Google's Sundar Pichai with the hope that the head of Android will reconsider the finality of his decision and take the Galaxy Nexus for a last dance. The petition in question has received some near 14,000 signatures and over 3,400 comments that Max Duckwitz, the petition organizer, has printed and mailed to Mountain View.
Now, Mr. Pichai should have the petition on his desk in a few short weeks, which will hopefully prompt him to at least give a more merciful explanation as to why the perfectly capable hardware on the Galaxy Nexus won't be getting KitKat. Having said that, and as some of you have probably already come to understand, Android updates are a more complex (and expensive) issue than most of us care to entertain. Just look at US carriers, do you really think they purposefully want you to miss out on the new software, just because?
