HTC One Review

On Wednesday Jason Mackenzie took to HTC’s website to talk about Android 4.4 KitKat’s North American arrival, revealing that they were behind schedule and that HTC One owners in Canada and the United States were looking at another week or two before the update hits.

The good news for those in Canada, however, is that Android 4.4.2 appears to be rolling out on schedule after all! Although HTC has yet to comment on the situation, tons of reports are coming in suggesting that the update is arriving to HTC One owners through Bell, Rogers, TELUS, Virgin, SaskTEL and Wind.

Aside from all the expected Android KitKat goodies, the update also includes Sense 5.5 and likely a few other HTC-specific improvements. As an official change-log has yet to be released, we can say specifically what all has changed here.

Keep in mind that the rollout will likely take a few days or more to reach everyone in Canada. When in doubt, you can always head to Settings> About Phone> Software Update to check if KitKat is waiting for you.

Consumers in the United States can hope this means that at least a few carriers will start seeing the update sooner rather than later, as well. At the very worst, it sounds like Android 4.4.2 should hit all North American carriers within a few weeks.

So how about it, any Canadian readers get Android 4.4.2 on their HTC One? If so, through what carrier?
