Default [Q] When will we see 4.4.4?

So I believe the latest official stock ROM/firmware for any of the Galaxy Tab PROs is still 4.4.2. Correct me if I'm wrong.

When will we see 4.4.4 or 4.4.3? I always thought Samsung was relatively speedy with their updates, but I read that even the LG G Pad 8.3 is about to get 4.4.4 or something. Where's our firmware update!!

Google just announced android "L" I am pretty sure Samsung will skip two minor updates and go with one major update.

Uh, I think it'll be a while before we see Android L. (Android 5.0)

Also, it's a VERY major update. Samsung will take at least 6-8 months to figure out how to customize TouchWiz/MagazineUX for Android 5.0

In the meanwhile, we still need further support for our KitKat GTP's.
There's lots of outstanding bugs/issues that they can fix to improve our experience NOW, not in 8 months time.

In 8 months time I might not be using this tablet anymore, lol.

Everything what you stated are all true, but I rarely see any tablets that go through all updates. Most I see are major android updates + manufacturers' stability updates.

It would be nice to see our tablet software is up to date but with Samsung releasing 3 or so tablets per month, most likely their focus is on running their overlay more stable rather androids minor updates.

I wish we live on a perfect world but what's fun in that haha..
