T-Mobile HTC One M8 gets 4.4.3 update, Verizon soon

This update has been floating around for a while now, with Verizon actually hinting that their update to Android 4.4.3 might come out today. As it happens, it looks like T-Mobile HTC One M8 users will be the first to get the update, as Verizon says it needs to “re-spin” the update and might delay the rollout.

ASUS PadFone Infinity, Fonepad Note 6 get their Android 4.4 due

Better late than never, we always say, so we welcome with open arms the very late arrival of the promised Android 4.4 update for the ASUS PadFone Infinity A80, as well as its descent on ASUS' stylus-wielding Fonepad Note 6. But while the update of last year's devices to the latest Android version is definitely a good thing, ASUS' update methods might make some wonder if they're really worth the trouble.

Android distribution: KitKat now over 20%

As a monthly 7-day data collection on Android platform distribution statistic, Google has published the August number – with Android KitKat 4.4 passes 20 percent, now at 20.9 percent.

Sony pushes Kitkat update to Xperia E1, E1 Dual

Sony has been slowly bringing its devices up to Android 4.4 Kitkat standard – at least those that can hack Android’s latest and greatest version. Next up, according to the official Sony Mobile blog is the Xperia E1 and Xperia E1 Dual, both members of Sony’s lower to mid-tier class of phones.

The Kogan Agora 4G is a budget LTE smartphone

Kogan is a brand more known in the Australian market, but it will be good to continue looking at the Android products they put out, especially as they are marking a new cooperation with Taiwan-based consumer electronics outfit BenQ for this new iteration of their Agora smartphone. The Agora 4G is the second quad-core phone from Kogan, and it is entering what is an already saturated low-end smartphone market.

Rikomagic ready to ship 2nd version of MK902 TV box

Rikomagic is nearing the ship date for its MK902 II, which is an Android-powered TV box/mini-PC. Some people call it a TV box – because you connect it basically to your TV and then get to do stuff – and some call it a mini-PC, which is again understandable, as it more or less gives you a PC-like interface using the built-in Android OS.

More devices getting Google Now launcher support

The Google Now launcher was probably the pick of the bunch of features that launched with Android 4.4 Kitkat (you can argue that point with us, of course), and it became all the more better when Google started peddling the launcher to other devices other than those bearing the Nexus prefix through the Google Play Store. After the app’s recent update, we bet more people will be happier because of the apparently wider range of devices supported.
