Default Kitkat for SM-P600 in Europe

Hi!Last May Samsung released the update to android 4.4.2 for SM-P600 (WiFi model) in spain (PHE). Nowadays Samsung hasn't realised the update for any other European county yet .Does anybody knows why?

...because....Samsung. Sorry, no one knows why, we assume bug fixing but I doubt those at Samsung have a good excuse other than they can't be bothered. Take solace in the fact that when it will be released, it hopefully will be completely bug free, but don't count on it!

I've given up on ever getting it. Mine is OK without kitkat though so I am not bothered. Especially as I will be getting the nexus 8/9 when it arrives. Samsung cannot keep up with the range of devices they have.

Default KitKat...when? Who knows?...Do Samsung care?

Who knows? There never seems to be any rhyme or reason to Samsung's firmware update schedule.

It usually doesn't bother me as when you read around, most of the other manufacturers are just as bad. Lately though, Samsung seem to have gotten progressively worse with their firmware updates.

In the case of the SM-P600 I bought this as it was their latest tablet at the time of buying (Christmas 2013) and I thought it would be a prime candidate for a quick update. How wrong could i be?

I've always favoured Samsung hardware over other stuff (not sure why, I just like their stuff) but the firmware update debacle with their phones and tablets is seriously making me think about a switch to a Nexus next time round. At least you know what you're getting with a vanilla Google phone.

Come on Samsung, pull your finger out!!

They just don't care and they wonder why their sales are constantly falling...
