Dual shock 3 native support for t/tx/v owners to be included 4.3. That's great news
zamroni, 07 Nov 2013Neo V please Sony. The neo v has no chance of an update
At last. My experia V Got an attention . Hopefully the heating issue fixed on this upgrade.
Billydf, 07 Nov 2013wow.. read it carefully. the first batch of 4.4 only Z series minus ZR, and then there will be... moreyeah there is no doubt that ZR/SP/T/TX/V will get 4.4 i'm not sure about M/C/L, i think the only reason why ZR not get 4.4 in the same time is because low internal memory and 720p HD Display.
wow.. read it carefully. the first batch of 4.4 only Z series minus ZR, and then there will be second batch, third etc so i believe ZR will get 4.4 and others xperia will get 4.4
Sizz, 07 Nov 2013Wow you talk a load horse crap, lol!

PLEASE SHOW ME ANY OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM SAMSUNG
guys... stop dreaming on about xperia U, P and S (mine is S) to get 4.3 or either 4.4... cuz qualcom didn't push the update to it's S3 chipsets for android 4.2.2 and stopped supporting updating the drivers. so don't just jump way too far! and this is unexpected to happen unfortunately!
Commentator, 07 Nov 2013There's a certain Xperia U which ended up with only ICS, which by the way is full of bugs, lag... moreXperia U, despite being a low end device, has a very high chance to get 4.4, along with Xperia S and Xperia P.
All mid to high end Xperias from 2013 will get 4.4 for sure.
But yea, time will tell.
thank sony for the update release of Xperia V, i haven't got any update since jellybean 4.1.2 about 9 or 10 months ago. happy :P
18 months? So why none of SE Xperia 2011 models got Jelly Bean? Even 4.1 would be a great improvement.

http://m.gsmarena.com/galaxy_s_iii_... morethat is meant for kit kat 4.4
back then we thought it was going to be called key lime pie and the android version number would be 5.0
and samsung could not know what is needed to support an os version that isn't created yet.
abhijitbiswas, 07 Nov 2013Who told you that mega 5.8 is getting 4.3jb? It's hardware don't support it... The rest will g... moreWow you talk a load horse crap, lol!
And you clearly haven't a clue of what you are talking about, Samsung themselves said the Mega5.8 will get 4.3 in their press release, I suggest you read it carefully.
There are already multiple leaks of the Note2s 4.3 FW so it should arrive soon, and so will the Mega5.8, 6.3, Zoom, Active and S4 Mini, no they won't arrive late,stop confusing Samsung with Sony's slow pace. No, they are not only updating flagships, the Mega5.8 is a mid end and S4Mini is a low end, both getting 4.3, quit talking rubbish.
By the way, the S4 Mini and Galaxy Megas will also get 4.4: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s4_mini_and_galaxy_mega_to_get_android_44-news-6932.php
