Original post: With today's Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 announcements, a natural question to pose is when exactly the new version of Android will be headed to other devices. Taiwanese manufacturer HTC is first out the gate with an official answer for us and a commitment to a relatively speedy update path for its flagship HTC One in the U.S.
An HTC spokesperson said:
"We’re all excited about Google’s Halloween treat and plan on breaking off a piece of that Kit Kat bar for the HTC One. In North America, we’ll deliver Android 4.4 with Sense 5.5 for the HTC One within 90 days, and the HTC One max and the HTC One mini will follow."
Elsewhere the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 are due to receive updates to KitKat "in the coming weeks."
