As of this writing, the newest iteration of Android, version 4 dot Four or better known as Kit Kat is now available. Well, sort of. I still haven’t gotten the push for my Nexus 7. It is on the newly available Nexus 5, which is available for all carriers that’s not named Verizon. (seriously, WTF?! I am seriously thinking about moving carriers!). Google Play editions of the HTC One, and GS4 should get the push shortly, as well as developers editions. Nexus 4‘s should be getting them soon as well. (again, Verizon does not have any of the dev. versions of the One and GS4, as well as the Nexus 4, seriously, WTF?!). HTC made a bold announcement that it will try to get Kit Kat out to the One (that’s not a GPE or a DE) within 90 days. I am so hoping that will come true, they did do good by shipping out 4.3 to all other carriers other than Verizon this past month, and well Big Red’s version will roll out at the end of November. (again, SERIOUSLY!? why is Verizon holding back on all this stuff, seriously WHY!?). Anyway, Kit Kat has a slew of new features, and even though it’s only a dot 1 upgrade, it’s still a significant upgrade. The video below is from MKBHD. He explains the top 5 features of Kit Kat, and then some. Enjoy!
