In the last several weeks, word of an upcoming Android 4.4.3 release started spreading around, for the most part based on sightings of new build numbers in server logs and bug reports, along with this tip by @LlabTooFeR. Of course, with so many 4.4.3 mentions, it's no surprise that these are actually legitimate and not creations of random trolls.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Android 4.4.3 is, unsurprisingly, going to be a pure bug-fixer release.

HTC has released a whole slew of kernel source files for the 2013 version of the One today, following the gradual rollout of Android 4.4.2 to the device around the world. There are, frankly, too many variants to name in this post individually, but some of the highlights include Vodafone UK, AT&T, Sprint, O2 in Germany and the UK, and a number of unlocked variants. The screenshots below tell the full story.

Our long national nightmare is over – AT&T has finally started pushing the KitKat update to Galaxy Note 3 owners. After updating, you'll see a new system UI, improved GPS, and an improved camera experience. It's all just a download away.

Well, that didn't take long. After getting word yesterday that the update was ready, Ma Bell has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the HTC One Mini. Along with 4.4.2, the update includes HTC Sense 5.5 with all the OEM-specific tweaks you'd expect.

It's not KitKat, but at least the Sony Xperia M is getting a little update love from the mothership today. Android 4.3 is rolling out now, but as usual, the exact timing varies by country and carrier. Heading into the update menu and refreshing will pull down the file if your device is eligible.

It's been scarcely a week since Android Wear exploded into the wearable scene, and everyone's been wondering about what will become of existing smart watch platforms. In the case of Sony's SmartWatch 2 (SW2) and SmartBand, it's full steam ahead. Yes, Sony isn't planning any Android Wear devices right now.

Lurking on Motorola's Moto 360 product page was an image you weren't meant to see. Hidden from view, was a promo graphic showing the selection of watch bands. It was later removed from the page completely. Only metal and a light brown leather band were announced last week, but this image shows seven leather straps.

It looks like the image was not ready for public consumption – there's a snippet of Lorem Ipsum above the title.

There's nothing like a good rumor about the next version of Android. As we approach I/O 2014, we're sure to hear more and more rumors, some true, many false. The Information - generally reliable in the arena of leaks and rumors - has published one of the first "L Release" rumors, today indicating that Android's next major version bump (which the publication speculates could arrive as soon as I/O) will help Google make headway into the corporate adoption arena, convincing companies to adopt Android phones rather than the iPhone (which has already made significant gains in enterprise) as employee handset of choice.

More than a year after NVIDIA revealed its SHIELD hardware, the company has maintained its commitment to keeping the platform updated and supported. The company has added huge chunks of new features to its Android gaming machine at long intervals, and the upcoming KitKat release will be no exception. In addition to Android 4.4, the software package will take GameStream out of beta, expand console mode, add support for streaming from any network, and a whole lot more.

While some would call it an inevitable eventuality, others were taken a bit aback when Google teased a wearable SDK at SXSW a couple weeks back, and later announced Android Wear. For those of you playing at home, Google has created no fewer than five variants of the Android OS tuned to a specific piece or style of hardware to date - Google TV, Chromecast (which does indeed run Android), Google Glass, Nexus Q, and now Android Wear.
