I like all of you was happy to hear the news. However, with kitkat comes a new way (sounds not good for people who like to move items to removable sd cards) for us to manage our files. Im still a little confused on exactly what this means, but I guess time will tell.

Should we start a pool on when it'll actually come out? I'm betting something like 8 months from now.

The only problem with that article was this statement....

"The full list is below, and of course they are subject to carrier approval."

You know AT&T will be the last and Verizon will be first, hopefully AT&T will decide to release the update to the S3.
