In the 4.4 List No ZR is included.. So its means ZR cant handle the Update Ha? Its shame... I am sure Sony will change The Update list and we will get 4.4

Almost certain the SP will get 4.4 at some point – I doubt we’ll get the one after that though.

I agree, they did say the "first raft" to get 4.4, which implies that there will be more rafts to come

I am not worried. SP will get 4.4 , but don't expect it any sooner then q2 2014. But we will have 4.3 to keep us busy until that time comes.

If you look at gsmarena they allready read betwen the lines of what SONY said and in the SP descripition they posted this "OS Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean), planned upgrade to v4.4 (KitKat)"

I am 90% sure that our Xperia SP will get 4.4. "First raft" says it all. In second raft should be ZR and SP. Until then, we will have 4.3 next month So expect from Sony a Christmas gift

I don't understand why the SP and specially the ZR are not in this first list.. this means they will probably get it whenever they want and that will be at the end of their cycle.. so they don't need to update them anymore. Its a shame what companies like sony and lg are doing to the Android community, really really sad.

The SP and ZR do have certain big differences though, as the SP only has 1GB RAM and 1.7GHz Dual core while the ZR has 2GB RAM and 1.5GHz Quad core. Just from those facts alone, you can tell that the ZR is more futureproof than the SP and having 4.4 on the ZR won't literally mean we can also have it on the SP. But we all do hope we can have 4.4 on our SPs.

Performance doesnt mean anything because 4.4 Kit-Kat is designed to run on low performance phones with as low as 512MB ram. Beasts like SP and ZR will eat Kit-Kat for dessert

Agree... with system requirement like that on kitkat. Its just a ''dessert'' for our outstanding phone... Eagerly waiting for 4.3 and then 4.4.. ╮(^-^)╭
