Moto G Android 4.4.2 OTA surfaces for sideloading

Motorola surprised Moto G users earlier in the month when they announced the Kit Kat rollout was beginning a bit ahead of schedule. We weren't expecting Android 4.4 to arrive until sometime in January, however Motorola announced the rollout was underway as of December 19th. And nicely, that meant Android 4.4.2 as opposed to 4.4. The catch is, we suspect many have yet to receive the update.

And well, the wooden backed Moto X is now available through Moto Maker.

DROID Ultra, Mini, Maxx soak test brings talk of Kit Kat

The specifics have yet to be revealed, however it does appear that Verizon and Motorola are getting ready to begin a soak test for the DROID lineup. This time around the update looks to be heading to the DROID Ultra, Mini and Maxx. And perhaps more important, it is believed to be the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update. What we have seen comes by way of an email from the Motorola Feedback Network and that bit about Kit Kat does involve a bit of speculation.
