Samsung Lists Which US Galaxy Smartphones And Tablets Will Get Updated To KitKat

Samsung has been very cautious in rolling out its KitKat update thus far, with even most Galaxy S4 owners still waiting around on Jelly Bean. This doesn't even take into account all the millions of other Galaxy smartphones and tablets that often take a backseat to the company's flagship.

HTC Announces London And New York Media Event For March 25th

And so it begins. While HTC hasn't announced anything specific for the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it looks like the company is planning its own shindig roughly one month later.

HTC hasn't built up the best reputation when it comes to supporting its devices, but the company is working to change that. So far it has issued updates to the HTC One relatively quickly, getting KitKat out before Samsung.

Most custom ROMs require separate builds for separate carrier variants - one for an international model, one for an AT&T model, one for a Verizon model, and so on.

Last month the CM team combined three HTC One builds, and today they're doing the same for Samsung's Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 3.
