Motorola to bring Android 4.4 KitKat to 10 of its smartphones
Motorola wasn't among the first companies to announce its Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade plans even though it is owned by Google. It seems the wait was worth it though, as the Motorola's support website shows 10 smartphones will be getting the KitKat treatment next year.
Motorola's latest Moto X and its Developer's Edition will be getting Android 4.4 KitKat everywhere. Verizon's Moto X update rollout has already begun, while the other carriers will be getting it very soon.
Somewhat surprisingly, the dated Motorola Electrify M for US Cellular and ATRIX HD for AT&T will be getting Android 4.4 KitKat as well. Oddly enough though the ATRIX HD Developer's Edition won't get the same treatment and will remain stuck on Jelly Bean.
Verizon's DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx, DROID Mini, DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR Maxx HD, and DROID RAZR M will be all getting Android 4.4 KitKat. Now this is some great news to all Motorola users on Verizon contracts.
More good news for Developer edition owners - the RAZR HD and RAZR M Developer editions will both be receiving KitKat down the road.
There is nothing on the timing of the updates just yet, but we guess Motorola will announce its plans as the updates' development advances.
Those who own an older Motorola device on some of the US carriers are eligible for the Motorola Trade Up program. You can return your old Motorola smartphone and get a $100 rebate on a new Jelly Bean-running Moto handset that will be later updated to KitKat.
And they've just announced it's coming to RAZR I as well - 26 Feb
