    HTC said the GPE One will be getting 4.4 within the next 15 days. I wouldn't consider that a promise, but given that time frame I'd expect the Nexus 4 update to start rolling out within two weeks.

    Having release 4.4 on my Nexus 4 will be nice. But there isn't really anything I find about the changes in 4.4 that overwhelms me or "excites" me.

    I'm not getting the Nexus 5 so the release of Android 4.4 has me excited.

    AOSP 4.4 is already available that can be flashed. Soon the factory images will be able from Google which can also be flashed but I guess most people will wait for the OTA update which make take a week or so.

    I'm not buying an N5, either, so 4.4 on an N4 is much more important to me personally. That doesn't mean I don't care about the N5, or the N5 getting 4.4. That's really awesome. It's also really awesome that the GNS and lots of other older hardware will also eventually get 4.4, as this just sticks it in Apple's face all the more.

    This would make my phone perfect for me!!! Just hope it works out like they say

    I'm most likely wrong but i feel like google is delaying the nexus ota's so they can release them along side the GPE phones. That's just what i think.

    I love not being stuck in a walled garden by using Google's products. From what I'm seeing of the N5 with 4.4, my N4 with 4.4 will give me a lot of satisfaction.

    According to the 4.4 announcement, the roll out will be: Nexus 4, 7, 10, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play edition devices. If this is the case the N4 will be first in line. A couple of days ago someone also said that the individual device roll outs will go to the largest markets first.,,US, UK, Europe

    Did it with my Galaxy Nexus and it screwed my account synching.

    Didn't try it on my N4.

    I'll wait. Last update took ten days for me to get it after it was announced it was pushing to the N4.

    Given that Nexus devices seem to be in line ahead of GPE devices and GPEs were slated for a two week upgrade timeframe, I'd imagine this time next week 4.4 will start trickling out via OTA to N4 and then N7 2013, N10, N 7 2012.

    Hopefully this too will be leaked soon or someone will post up that they got 4.4 and where theyre located.

    Whenever I have gotten a whole release update of Android (not just little incidental updates) I always wipe my phone first to prevent problems. With the exception of a straight Debian upgrade, there isn't a single OS on any kind of hardware that I don't do a clean install first before doing an OS upgrade.

    It occurs to me that, when 4.3 came out, I took several piles of flaming dog excrement from people here over suggesting they go about it in that fashion, so this time I'm only going to say that's the procedure I am going to use. The rest of you folks... you can do whatever you want.

    I think you got flak not for what you were saying buy for the sheer number of times you said it, often in places where is was somewhat irrelevant advice. To your credit it's never a bad idea to do a clean install but once we've all heard it 5 or 6 times it can get old.

    I think it was brought it as android was criticised by them for not updating old flagships etc and fragmenting updates

    I love the N5, I have one at work I've played with (and had to hand back) and it seems fantastic but I still think I'm going to sit it out for now and see what 4.4 is like on my N4, what it does to battery life etc

    Often an OS update is enough to shake away my urges for a new device so I'm hoping that will be the case with KitKat. I want to keep the N4 for a while yet, frankly it does everything I need it to exceptionally well so I have no reason to change or need to spend the cash. I could put that money towards a chromebook 11 when they're out and have change.

    That doesn't stop the N5 calling at me in the back of my mind though!

    I'm sorry, Chetan, did someone die and make you king, whereupon you outlawed everything you do not like?

    Fairclough brings up a fair point, even though it wasn't foremost in my mind at the time. Apple has been able to make that happen in a sense through forcing carriers into becoming relegated to the status of Network-layer service providers. To the extent that Google, Mozilla, RIM, and yes, even Microsoft, can do that, it will be a boon to us users.

    Sure it will. But saying "this just sticks it in Apple's face all the more" reeks of fanboyism. You simply did not need to say that, oh and I'm giving my opinion and you can't stop me can you?
