Android 4.4.3 Update: OS Now available To Various Devices; Google’s Mobile Operating System Continues To Dominate US Market Beating Apple

The Android 4.4.3 KitKat update is now available to Nexus, Motorola And Google Play Edition devices.

According to an article on ZD Net, “The imminent arrival of Android 4.4.3 was flagged up earlier this week when Google released it as a factory image (for unlocked Nexus devices) and on the Android Open Source Project – the build that third party ROMs such as CyanogenMod based their firmware on.”

Motorola has announced Tuesday, that the latest update will be available for their Moto X, Moto G and Moto E smartphone users.  However, the Moto X update will only be available initially to US customers.

Moto G owners in the US who bought the device online and those in Brazil who bought it at retail can also expect the update this week. Consumers with the recently released low-end Moto E can also expect the update this week too.

“This latest software update brings an improved dialler with a new interface and new colours to enhance consistency and usability, as well as several stability, framework, security fixes, and enhancements to the power profile capabilities,” said Steve Horowitz, Motorola Mobile’s SVP of software engineering.

According to Android Police, the Google Play Edition (GPE) versions of the HTC One M7, the Galaxy S4, HTC One M8 and the Sony Z Ultra started receiving the update on Tuesday evening. 

Lastly, Sprint subscribers with the Nexus 5 should also be getting the update from this week, with the rollout occurring in batches until 9 June, said ZD Net

When it comes to operating systems, recent scores suggest that the Android is still the one to beat.

According to

comScore, an average 52.5 percent of smartphones in the United States ran Android during a three-month period ending April 2014. Apple’s iOS, meanwhile, had an average U.S. market share of 41.4 percent, Microsoft with 3.3 percent, BlackBerry with 2.5 percent, and Nokia’s Symbian with 0.2 percent
