Zettaly launches Avy wireless speakers with touchscreen, KitKat

Zettaly initially offered the “Avy” portable wireless speakers through a crowdfunding effort via Kickstarter. That effort did not reach its funding goals, but it did not stop the company from moving forward with its design. What we have now is a unique portable wireless speaker with a 7-inch touchscreen interface, runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and can handle up to 40GB of data.

HTC One (M8) gets Android 4.4.4, HD Voice support from AT&T

The HTC One (M8) may have finally received the Android 5.0 update but that doesn't mean AT&T has forgotten about those units still running the older Android version. The mobile carrier recently rolled out the official Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Those who want Lollipop would have to wait for a bit or upgrade to this version first to receive a number of important performance and security updates.

Updated Google Now Launcher brings Material Design to KitKat, Jelly Bean

Most of the Android devices today still run KitKat and Jelly Bean or even the older versions of the mobile platform. Only a small percentage run Android 5.0 Lollipop but not all phone manufacturers and carriers are ready to release the latest software update yet. Jelly Bean and KitKat users are missing out on a lot of Lollipop features and Material Design but good thing Google is bringing some elements to the latest Google Now Launcher.

KitKat vs Lollipop on Galaxy S4: It’s like a new phone

If you've owned a Samsung Galaxy S4 for some time now, chances are, you feel like getting a new phone by now or at least upgrading to the current flagship, the Galaxy S5. But if budget constraints have kept you from doing so, your problems may be temporarily solved for now. A side by side comparison of the difference between Android KitKat and Lollipop on the Galaxy S4 shows that it feels like you're getting a new device because of all the major changes, not just design-wise but also how you interact with your smartphone.

Android Distribution for November: business as usual

You might have noticed that Google didn't release any figures for Android's spread last October. Perhaps it was due to the busy-ness of getting Android 5.0 and the new Nexus devices out the door. Or perhaps there is some more nefarious reason. Whatever those were, this month's numbers are up and, unsurprisingly, KitKat continues to rise while others continue to fall. Surprisingly, Android 4.2 seems to be unwilling to give up its hold in the market just yet.

Huawei Ascend Mate2 will not get Android KitKat

In our excitement over Android 5.0, we might have been guilty of forgetting that there are those who still live in a Jelly Bean world. As if to douse cold water over enthusiasm, Huawei's US outfit has just announced that its previous flagship, the Ascend Mate2, will not even be getting Android 4.4 KitKat. That practically puts an end to the software life of a smartphone that was practically just launched in January this year.

Asus ZenFone 4 update brings KitKat 4.4

Asus ZenFone 4 owners have something to be happy about on the first day of October. A major software update has landed for the Asus smartphone bringing with it a number of notable updates. Most notable is a new version of Android.

Android 4.4.4 rolling out to Xperia Z devices

Almost 3 months after it rolled out to Sony Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra, Anrdoid KitKat 4.4.4 is finally coming to the other Xperia devices. The Japanese OEM has confirmed through their official Twitter account @SonyMobileNews that they have started updating their older devices including Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z to the latest version of the platform.

Android “L” seems to be all about a Lemon Meringue Pie

Are you craving for some lemon meringue pie? Well, Google seems to be hankering for some as more evidence seems to indicate that the upcoming Android release, codenamed Android L, will be called “LMP”. And since it has always been all about sweet nothings when it comes to naming Android updates, then the initials most likely stand for this tangy dessert, unless you can think of any other sweet that the LMP can mean.
