Right before the weekend, Verizon started pushing out the long-awaited KitKat update to the Galaxy S4. Whether or not the masses noticed is one thing, but Android enthusiats all over the country quietly squealed to themselves as they pounced on the update icon that appeared in their notification bars. Now the carrier is rolling out an update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition as well, software version KOT49H.P605VVRUCNC2.

In addition to KitKat, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is receiving a number of bug fixes. The S Note widget should be more reliable, and Chrome's tab bar shouldn't flicker in portrait mode anymore. A few security related fixes should also help provide peace of mind.


Still, Android 4.4 is the big news here. Enjoy those white notification icons, that fancy immersive mode, Google Cloud Print, and those apps that require KitKat or higher to use. The update is going out in stages, but soon, Note 10.1 2014 Edition owners, it will be time to have some fun.

    Aaahhh! Thank god its not for the Note 3 on Verizon! Just every other phone / tablet (original note 10.1 too) getting KitKat, 2012's phones (Note 2), 2013's and 2014's (Note 3 Neo). Thanks Verizon!!!!!!!

    This update made the Note 10.1 2014 so much more usable. So glad.

    And yet still no update for the Note 3. You suck, Verizon. I hate that your network is the only one that works where I need it. Good thing I rooted my Note 3 and don't have to wait for your bloat infested updates anyway.

      Even better news bro, looks like the Sprint Galaxy S3 will be getting KitKat 4.4.2 pretty soon. Build L710VPUDND8. Unless the Note 3 update for Verizon gets pushed within the next week or so, looks like a 2 year old Galaxy S3 will get it too before our Verizon Note 3. I love it.... Verizon, is the Note 3 now your red headed step child now that the Nexus and Droid Charge are out of the house???
