Verizon's Motorola Moto X update gets pushed out; here are the changes

Verizon's Motorola Moto X update gets pushed out; here are the changes
Verizon has started pushing out an update for the Motorola Moto X.  The other three major U.S. carriers have already released the update, which improves the color accuracy, focus speed and exposure on the rear camera. We had mentioned this part of the update earlier Tuesday when we told you to expect it to come later in the day.

Along with the improvements to the camera, the update will improve the accuracy of the phone's touchless controls and eliminates the chopiness that occurs during some phone calls. In addition, the Motorola Migration Experience is improved. That feature lets you move over photos, videos, texts, call lists, SIM contacts and more from your old Android phone to your shiny new Moto X.

Another improvement included the elimination of a bug that affected Motorola Assist, which lead to the reading of text messages at inopportune times (we could have a field day with that one). The update also adds a 30 day expiration date to the Google Drive 50GB offer, and fixes a problem that sometimes prevented a lost Moto X from reporting its position with the Moto Care Lost Device Finder service.

As usual, it is suggested that you use a Wi-Fi connection to download the update and to make sure you have a sufficiently charged battery. A 50% charge should suffice.

Did I miss something or is VZW releasing this update within 30 days of the T-Mobile and AT&T release? Should they be putting it through their "Extensive Testing" for the next two months first???

What I don't understand is how a google company still doesn't have the latest software even after after HTC of all companies has started to release the first skinned updates of 4.3. Just ridiculous.

I'm hoping it's because they're going to leapfrog the competition, skip 4.3, and be first to update to 4.4. Being close to stock, there's no reason they couldn't.

That's kinda my point. As close as they are to stock I don't get why they couldn't leap frog the competition to 4.3. One can only hope you are right in that regard.
