Leaks Show That Verizon Is Preparing Soak Tests For A KitKat 4.4 Update On The Moto X

We figured that Motorola would be among the first to roll out Android 4.4 updates to their phones, considering the company's relationship with Google. But I don't think anyone suspected that the company would begin rolling out software updates within the month. According to an anonymous tipster, Verizon is beginning the soak test process for the Android 4.4 update to the Moto X, a strong indicator that it could be sent to all the Moto X units on Verizon within a few weeks.

ISIS Mobile Wallet Finally Launches On Verizon, AT&T, And T-Mobile, Probably Wasn't Worth The Wait

Remember when everyone was pissed off that the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus couldn't use Google Wallet because of "security concerns"?

Nice work there, fellas.

[Updated] Verizon DROID MAXX, Ultra, And Mini Receive OTA Update To Software Version 12.15.10, Owners Get Free 50GB Of Google Drive Storage

Update: DROID Mini owners are also eligible for the 50GB Google Drive promotion. The smaller device is receiving an OTA update that largely resembles that of the other two Verizon-exclusive Motorola handsets.

It may be exciting to receive a new OTA update, but many don't quite live up to the thrill of seeing the notification appear in our status bars. This is one of those updates. No, it doesn't miraculously roll out KitKat to the DROID Ultra and the DROID Maxx ahead of everyone else, but it does provide users with a preloaded promotion offering 50GB of Google Drive storage.

Woohoo! Like A Pillow, Verizon Is Here To Support You, Or, Watch This VZW Social Media Rep (Bot?) Treat A Customer Like He's Brain Dead

Let's say you're an angry Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, which isn't a hard thing to be. Your phone still hasn't received Android 4.3, and Android 4.4 is right around the corner. The guy next to you at work has a Nexus 4 on a prepaid T-Mobile plan and uses the entirety of his wireless bill savings to buy KitKat Minis which he throws at you relentlessly while chanting "NEXUS 4 LYFE #HOLOYOLO." He comes dressed to every casual Friday in a homemade Matias Duarte button-down and has told you to "watch this" 38 times this year while using Google Wallet at the weekly staff meeting at Peet's, right before taking a photo sphere of his latte art.
