    Quite happy to see Motorola gave 4.4 to Verizon users and the rest of the carriers should fall under that update list soon but.....what about the dev edition?
    one of the perks of it was the direct update from Motorola and i don't mean to be a ****** but i couldn't find anything for us who gave up that big money for it.

    not ******** but just felt like sharing.

    I don't think the dev edition is supposed to get updates first... It's just an unlockable version

    developer edition will get 4.4 right before ATT/T-Mobile gets the update.

    verizon 4.4 is a real surprise. it even beats Nexus 4 ota.

    so the next wave would be dev editions

    Per a friend at Motorola:

    Worked hard with Verizon to get KitKat on their network. Keep your unlocked and dev models charged, it's coming very soon.

    Thanks Jerry. That's a bit of comfort fit those with these models.

    I gotta say, KitKat rolling out on Verizon first AND before the N4, has me kinda freaked out. I'm not suppose to like being on Verizon. This makes me like being on Verizon.

    No doubt. I'm digging the Moto X, and mine's not even in my hands yet. Two of the few things that made me hold off have been addressed. The first is Google Wallet tap to pay and the second was timely updates, which is, well, was, always an issue with Verizon. Maybe it's just the nature of 4.4 and it was easy for Verizon to approve. Who knows, and frankly, I don't care. It's pretty cool either way even though it creates a new level of expectation for the speed of future updates.

    Where did Motorola say that? The benefit of the developer editions is the unlockable bootloader.

    I thought they also tout updates directly from Moto and not thru a carrier. Could be I read on on a thread instead of from Moto...I almost went with a Dev edition but decided on a 32GB all black model on ATT instead.

    From Motorola.com:

    Moto X Developer Edition

    It’s everything you love about the Moto X—with an unlockable bootloader.

    32GB memory
    Special black and woven white Developer Edition design
    Works with AT&T and T-Mobile*
    Bring your own SIM (none included)
    Due to high demand, your Moto X Developer Edition (GSM Networks) may take as long as 7 days to ship.

    I have the Verizon Dev Edition, and I got the 4.4 update today. So I'm assuming the GSM hasn't received it yet.

    One of these days people on here will understand what a Developer's Edition phone is and isn't.

    I don't know why I said that. It will never happen.

    Did you even read that? It says that updates come from Motorola. It says nothing about developer editions guaranteed of being updated before carrier versions.

    Especially on a network like Verizon where the modem packages are going to be proprietary. Motorola can't necessarily just push an update to the VZW version if that update is dependent upon Verizon for compatible radios. It's the same situation we saw with the Galaxy Nexus. Google can do everything possible on their end to make images available, but at the end of the day, if they're missing what Verizon provides due to licensing issues, then it is what it is.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all to see GSM Developer Editions see some quicker updates, but no way are we going to see that on Verizon. If it's going to be any faster, it'll be by hours or a day or two at the most. The two devices are not radically different (especially with Verizon in the mix). It's not like it's a GPE device.
