With the release of the Nexus 5 and with it Android 4.4 KitKat the rumors have now started as to what smartphones and tablets will get the latest version of Android next. The smart money would be to say the likes of the Nexus 4, 7 and 10, but this might not be the case.
We already know that the HTC One is to get Android 4.4 KitKat, as well as Motorola devices, such as the Moto X, although they have yet to offer a specific release date.
Sony Xperia owners have been asking when they are likely to see the latest version of Android, and it does seem as though there are plans to update the Sony Xperia Z1, Z Ultra and other Xperia devices, although they have not finalized which ones. Having said that, Android Community makes a point that some of these handsets have not even been updated to 4.3 yet.
It was not that long ago when Sony never used to offer software updates as quick as its rivals, but with the introduction of some of the newer models all that has changed. The reason we say this is because it is very likely that some of the Xperia range will skip Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and jump to 4.4 KitKat instead.
What Sony Xperia devices do you think will get 4.4 first, and do you think it is a good idea to skip 4.3?
