It looks like big buisness for cadburys or any other Choc / sweet company to get extra advertising. Maybe android 6 might be called hobnobs ?
Just my thought.

Android 4.4 doesn't really seem to add anything worthwhile, it just promises to be on more devices. To be honest it was already expanding rapidly even before this '4.4' reveal so it all seems like bull to me.

on the Android kitkat website they say "

It's our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody."


So they might add some new cool things, like how 4.1 added some new and slightly major things such as Project butter, Google now.

Maybe it will be available to everybody because you'll get a free Android phone when you buy a kit-kat?

no new features or info on 4.4 have been announced... that will be at the keynote in October with a new nexus phone,
i would Imagen the UI has been changed for a start, something that fits in with all the updated Google apps, (white backgrounds black text)
and probably move away from blue.

when android gets a new version name the changes are normally quite big to be honest... you just need to go back and look :)

What I'm interested in is the rumour that google are working on a kernel that allows optimization for devices with as little as 512MB. I think it was kernel 3.8 or something like that. I wonder if that'll come in KK.

If Kitkat is optimized for smartphones with 512 Mbs, do we will have an update from Huawei?

I doubt it - why would they put any effort into an old phone?

no, but i think there will be a new budget handset from them soon that runs it...

which will be the selling point and the excuse for still only having 512mb RAM  :(

to be honest its nothing special been running it a while now  :ph34r:

Not in a million years. I'm hoping there will be custom ROMs, though.

Друзья, такая проблема:
Установил на u8815 (g300) Android KitKat (4.4) cm11
Все работает шустро. Но, дома есть вайфай вышка. На ней установлено шифрование WEP...
Если ставить WPA (она не поддерживает выше), то на девайсе все работает.

Короче: на cm10.2 и cm11 - НЕ РАБОТАЕТ ВАЙФАЙ С ШИФРОВАНИЕМ WEP!!!! КАК ЭТО ИСПРАВИТЬ?!

p.s. проблема только эта. Если кто хочет себе установить kitkat - пишите, дам ссылки...

Friends, this problem:
Installed on u8815 (g300) Android KitKat (4.4) cm11
Everything works smartly. But the house has WiFi tower. It set encryption WEP ...
If you put WPA (it does not support the above), then on the device works.
 
In short: to cm10.2 and cm11 - CLOSED WiFi encrypted WEP!!!! How to fix it?
 
p.s. the only problem is this. If anyone wants to set himself kitkat - write, give links ...
