    There's no reason to think any manufacturers need special treatment. There are stories out there about app developers being made aware in advance of upcoming changes to sms integration. If app developers are getting advanced notice, why wouldn't phone makers? What advantage would Google find in springing surprises on the companies that have the ability to address the fragmentation Google has said it wants to address?

    Likely, the signs of who will update what are out there.
    HTC seems to see updates as a path to sales
    Moto has publicly stated that updates are important and are proving it with the Moto X.
    Moto starting work on a 4.4 update at the same time as Samsung in no way means they are on the same time-frame.
    The next two years will show us a lot.

    See Android Upgrade Alliance.

    IMO, being "open" about update schedules is just lip service to the "hardcore" community. I still think it's irrelevant to the masses who just need to be able to call, text, email, take a photo, check their social media platform(s) of choice, and search the web - especially with Google Play Services and including Gmail, Google Maps, Google Keyboard, Google Calendar, etc. in the Play store.

    Do Moto X owners already have most of what is included in Kitkat? Or is there something new for us besides the new dialer and text messaging apps?

    Why would anyone want to make predictions on updates this early?
    This is a new Moto under new management with new commitments.
    I wouldn't even try to guess when, how often, or for how long at this stage of the game.

    Is it really that hard to see skipping 4.3 is the most logical thing to do with kit kat release shortly?

    I know stock is a big deal to some, but if you ran the Apex launcher you could have custom icons and transparent draw if you want. In addition to some other cool stuff like gestures. I used to care about Android updates until I got a NexusS and the update totally destroyed the usability of the phone. Granted, that probably won't happen in this small update, but still.. what are they really adding that is a necessity besides maybe better camera options hopefully?

    Its not even announced yet. No one knows when it will even be released for nexus and GPe devices, much less the moto x. I would be much more worried about 4.3. Moto COULD skip 4.3, but i remember a build leaking for it a couple weeks back. This would mean they are working on it, so a skip is unlikely. Which also means 4.4 is at least months down the road as well.

    If I had to guess I'd say early February for Kit Kat on the Verizon Moto X. Based on rollouts in the past.

    How would we know? Kit Kat hasn't even been announced yet, so we don't know what features it will have.

    Just because Motorola says updates for 24 months, it doesn't necessarily mean that they'll be timely or numerous, or that they even necessarily relate to OS version updates. After all, Motorola updated the Droid X not to long ago... that's a device that has been supported and update for MUCH longer than 24 months, just not with OS updates. I know I'm nitpicking on wording here, and that fact is annoying, but it's the way I see it.

    Well Google would not waste any resources because the phone is made and coded by Motorola... not Google(which is a very odd misconception ppl are commonly having?)

    What I'm really curious is what kind of tinkering will Motorola do with Kitkat's expanded Touchless Controls. Is it reasonable to expect Motorola bring unique features of Touchless control feature with its Kitkat update?
