The Motorola Android 4.4 KitKat update schedule information for these devices comes following the surprising announcement yesterday that that the Verizon Moto X would be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update. The Moto G has also been confirmed for the Android 4.r KitKat update. The Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012) along with the Nexus 10 have also been announced to have the Android 4.4 KitKat update rolling out with the Nexus 4 and mobile data versions of the Nexus 7 soon to follow.
The Motorola Android 4.4 KitKat update schedule has managed to beat the Nexus 4, sparking frustration among users. Motorola has gotten a lot of credit for managing to roll out such a major update as the Android 4.4 KitKat to the Moto X so quickly, strengthened by its promised arrival on the Moto G. Now, the news that Motorola intends to bring the Android 4.4 KitKat update to the Droid Razr HD, Droid Razr Maxx HD, Motorola Atrix HD for AT&T and the Droid M is very good for Motorola device users. Naturally the newer Droid Maxx, Droid Mini and Droid Ultra are also in line for the Android 4.4 KitKat update. It looks like the past reported problems of poor cooperation between the Motorola and Android developer team may be a thing of the past and users can look forward to a fairly reliable series of updates. The Nexus 4 is now getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update and some have reported that its rolling out OTA.

The Motorola Android 4.4 KitKat update schedule shows that Motorola really is a "Google company", but there are many Nexus users that are unhappy with the fact that they've been beaten to the updates by Motorola. Firstly more than a week has passed and a large number of Nexus 7 users (myself included with the Nexus 7 2013) have yet to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update. It's not clear what the cause of this delay is, it's possible that Google is having problems rolling out the update and has suspended it until problems are resolved. That's what Samsung did when it encountered trouble with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3. However, unlike Samsung, we've gotten no news from Google if the Android 4.4 KitKat update is on track or not for the Nexus 7. Meanwhile the Nexus 7 mobile data version and the Nexus 4 haven't gotten the update either. This has upset a lot of users who purchased Nexus devices specifically for the timely stock Android updates. To not get it before Motorola feels almost like a slap in the face.
The speed of the Motorola Android 4.4 KitKat update schedule seems to be at odds with the lack of updates for Nexus devices. If there is a problem rolling out the update then why was the Moto X for Verizon (notorious for its updating problems) able to move the Moto X update before Google? Android Central does report that there is a bugfix with a new source code that has been rolled out with the build code KRT16S. "Word has come down from the Android-Build group that new source code for Android 4.4 KitKat is on the way, containing a number of bugfixes, This new build KRT16S. (The original pushed out was KRT16O).In addition, new factory images - including binaries - are available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7s and Nexus 10. No word yet on exactly what's changed, though we did discover a pretty significant audio bug in the Nexus 5. However, the N5 isn't mentioned with this update.This could, however, help explain the sluggish push of over-the-air updates for the Nexus devices." While Motorola is doing well it's not clear what's happening with Android 4.4 KitKat for the Nexus devices. Hopefully we will find out soon what's going on.
