T-Mobile began its soak test of the Moto X running Android 4.4.2 earlier this month, a version of Kitkat that has already gone out to devices in Canada.

Sprint Introduces 40 New Markets To Its 4G LTE Network, Bringing The Total Number Up To 340

Sprint Spark support is gradually rolling out to some of the carrier's devices, but there is something to be said for learning how to walk before learning how to run.
