Android 4.4

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.

HTC One M8 gets 4.4.3 update with some 4.4.4 fixes

It might sound a bit weird, but the HTC One M8 is only now getting updated to Android 4.4.3. The rollout actually started in the US last week, at least for the unlocked versions, and is finally making its way to Europe. This massive update bumps the Android version to 4.4.3 but does include some changes coming from 4.4.4, which means that HTC won't need to release that latest version immediately.

Moto X gets the Android 4.4.4 plus minor improvements

Verizon’s Moto X devices are finally getting the Android 4.4.4 treatment as the version has finally been approved to roll out via OTA update. Motorola’s current flagship device did not have to wait long to get the latest Android version, and it’s not that big a jump from 4.4.3, containing mostly security updates and a few tweaks from Motorola.

CyanogenMod 11 M8 is out, Settings app may crash

Right on schedule, CyanogenMod is delivering its monthly serving of M releases, now at number 8. This release brings a couple of interesting features to supported devices, at least those that do have M8 builds in the making, including the security fixes of Android 4.4.4, a revamped Settings app and a new Protected Apps feature.
