    Yes, hopefully soon. OEM's have been getting better with updates.

    Looking at that video appears to indicate that those features which are now available to a rooted tablet will now become common for kitkat. I am talking about the 4 multi-windows and having more apps available to that function. This would be really cool.

    Not to bum us out, but Samsung is NOT advertising the Note 10.1 2014 with the Magazine UX interface. Everything in their sites (I've checked both US and UK) for this model still shows the 'old' TouchWiz. Only the Pro models are being advertised with the new design. Also, the latest 'leak' of confirmed upcoming upgrades to KitKat, unfortunately, didn't include this tablet

    A lot of mixed messages... if you look at the description of our tablet on the Samsung France site, it does show the Magazine UX under the heading "My Magazine" which as we know is the Flipboard based app that we all have... but the description that I translated describes it to be the actual new Magazine UX with customizable panes. There is still hope for us yet it is a bit unsettling that Samsung has never once mentioned our tablet since the introduction of the new ones, nor mentioned anything about software upgrades. The multi window description still only mentions 2 side by side apps and not 4. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    EDIT: Reading it again,the description might actually refer to the My Magazine app we all have... who knows

    This is from the USA Samsung site where i got it from to begin with, i`d say this is a pretty good advertisement for it. Maybe its going to be a modified version for ours, as you would have no reason to buy a Tab Pro 10.1 for more money than the note when the note has the same specs

    Guess they don't want to sell the new one to me :P Hahaha The US Site is still showing the 'old' features for me, no matter how many times I hit refresh. I tried it in two other computers as well...

    I do hope they update this soon, and as for the Tab Pro, if I'm not mistaken it's got less RAM than ours? And that's without the S-Pen, too...

    Hopefully we will see it soon but Samsung is not known for timely releases or support of devices.

    Other than it being on KitKat I do not see the point in anyone buying the tab pro 10.1

    Considering that the 16GB versions are the same prices at Best Buy I am right there with you. I have not really used the S pen but I do like having it as an option.

    I guess I'm the odd one out. I don't want a magazine UI. Maybe I'm just old school (or just OLD). But I like arrangeable icons on my home screens so I can control where and how they look, for me to be the most productive with it.

    I'm with you Diane, I also DON'T want the new Magazine UX to ever come to any of my phones. I don't like MyMagazine as an app, I certainly don't want it as a HomeScreen, even if I change the launcher anyway :P

    As for the reason to choose the Tab, I'm not sure, I heard somewhere that this time around the Pro models DO have NFC, something I never thought I'd miss having, but with my Note 3 and how easy it is to share stuff via NFC I often find myself trying to beam things to the tablet, only to remember I can't just tap the two together.

    You still have the old icon look, you can remove "most" of the Magazine UX, they are just widgets, you can long press and delete them, the only one you cannot is the weather date and time widget, but if you move that on to your homescreen it will delete the other pages, this is how it works on the 8.4 tab pro

    Just an FYI...according to Phandroid, our tablet is on the official list for the 4.4 update. No mention of Magazine UX.

    We’d already gotten word from an inside source that Samsung had big plans for KitKat, and those rumors have just become reality. Samsung has just officially announced that 14 different Galaxy devices will be receiving the upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat. That’s a lot of devices, so let’s not waste any time and jump right into it:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 2
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
    Samsung Galaxy S3
    Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
    Samsung Galaxy Mega
    Samsung Galaxy Light
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

    Samsung made it a point to mention that “select” carrier editions of all these devices would get it, which pretty much means it’s up to your carrier to decide whether or not they’ll ultimately bring it to their version of any of these. We have a feeling quite a few of the devices on this list are going to be updated on nearly every carrier imaginable, though, so we wouldn’t worry too much about missing out.
