    Default KitKat in the coming weeks

    So at the Moto G event, it was announced that the Moto X would get KitKat in the coming weeks. If this is true, it's really good to see Moto backing up the talk they did about speedy updates.

    Still waiting on their HDs to get updated from 4.1. Haha

    They will also be complaining that their Razr's and Atrix's are not getting the update.

    Well, I'll believe it when Verizon approves it :-(

    Rest assured, Verizon is vigorously certifying 4.4 to be sure critical apps like VZNavigator will work for all of us.

    Is "coming weeks" any change to what we already expected.

    I'm not saying it won't happen. Motorola even with the Razr HD was quicker to get out updates than previous devices in their history. I know not to expect an update the following for any manufacturer especially being on Verizon. My question is will they continue to support the device after a year? That's when things really seem to slow down and/or drop off completely.

    Hearing Motorola acknowledge it again certainly makes me feel better about the chances of it actually happening within that time period.

    yup, we expected it to be "coming month" but "coming weeks" sound a lot better

    I had the Verizon Moto X a few months back before I returned it. During that time, I signed up to be part of Motorola's soak tests. I just received a Soak test email for the Moto X today. Could this be the Kit Kat update?

    I just got an invite to another software test - probably 4.4 wouldn't you think?

    Guys, these are suppose to be confidential don't you know. But yeah I just got the invite as well. You would have to think that it's 4.4 which means maybe the update to everyone isn't too far off.

    Based upon the update for the camera/call drop, the actual soak test begins 1 week after the emails are dispatched. Seeing this is a larger software upgrade, I wouldn't be surprised if the soak test lasts at least 1 week before going out to the masses.

    It is definitely good that there is information being released about a pending update if it fact this is 4.4. The Nexus 5 and Kit Kat were announced not 2 weeks ago. The N7 and N10 tablets are just beginning to get 4.4 with the N4 to follow soon.

    I had an Atrix 4G before switching to the Moto X. To be fair, Motorola acted like Lucy in the Peanut cartoons. They promised an update for months and even had leaks floating around, then pulled the football back at the last moment leaving everyone high and dry. To make matters worse, they offered $100 off to us when we bought a new Motorola device and then flipped it into a a scenario where we could "sell" our used phones to a third party when the time actually arrived.

    Personally, I'm a Motorola user because of their call quality and really didn't get too worked up over being stuck on Gingerbread. But can understand the vitriol they are getting from others too. They handled it very poorly.

    Yes, I believe so. Matt Jones posted on G+ a link to Motorola Feedback Network subtly encouraging people to sign up to be apart of 4.4 soak testing.

    Even if it's not 4.4, it's another update!
    There's a certain amount of win in an update, even if it's not the one you're looking for.

    From my past experiences with Android smartphones on VZW, there is the possibility of certain amount of pain from updates as well. On every OS update I've taken from Froyo to GB to ICS to JB, I've ultimately performed a FDR on my phones and found that it eliminated many if not all of the bugs that surfaced from overlaying an updated OS on top of the old one. It can be somewhat of a pain to do an FDR, but in the long run it can eliminate a lot of headaches and allow your phone to run much smoother. It would be nice if Kit Kat and future updates go smoothly without the need for a FDR. Here's hoping!

    Is the soak test Verizon only? Any sent to ATT owners?

    Based upon posts the emails seem to have only been sent to Verizon customers.

    Don't the other carriers typically get the update before Verizon bothers to approve it (that's the impression I got anyway). My guess is it is a maintenance update. People assumed the same thing with the JB update on the Razr HD. Motorola said JB would be coming by the end of the year, people got soak test invites in November and assumed it was JB, then it ended up being a maintenance update. The update still came before the end of the year, but not immediately following an announcement. I wouldn't mind being wrong....

    Well hopefully my "Rogers" Moto X will get it promptly, if it was a Telus brand, then I'd be waiting 6 months.
