Default KitKat ETA?

I'm trying to get a date for the KitKat update, has anyone heard anything? I'm so on the fence about this device.

Hi,

We'll update with an ETA once we're a bit further through with development.

It's an android device. KitKat contains bug fixes, scaling optimizations, new ui features, bluetooth 4.0, among many other things. You definitely want the latest version of your OS.

Come on brah.

Also, in KitKat fullscreen apps can hide the navigation buttons.

Okay, it is now February 3rd.

Where is GameStream and KitKat?!

I'm ready to buy it, but I need these 2 things. And all I'm hearing are "it's coming soon! "

Bah.

I'm getting antsy for it as well. I'm not rooting until after KK comes...just to avoid any unnecessary hassle. The more I use it, the more I enjoy it. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you went ahead and got one.

I'd love to get one. But not for $300.

Weren't you going to take Pleiades up on her $170 offer? For that price it's a steal.

As I've previously indicated, we'll give a more concrete ETA on KitKat and Gamestream once we're closer to their release.
