Poll: Are you running KitKat on your Android devices?

kitkat Android

Over the past few days, Android 4.4 KitKat has finally started rolling out to all current Nexus devices, including the Google Nexus 4 by LG, the Nexus 10 by Samsung, and all versions of the Nexus 7 by ASUS. And while some features are officially exclusive to the Nexus 5, at least the actual OS is available in the form of an OTA update or a factory image.

The two Google Play Edition devices – the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 – are expected to get the update very soon, and it’s also started making its way to the Moto X, as well. Other devices are expected to get the update officially in the coming months, and even more custom ROM developers have already released running, working ROMs for a plethora of more devices.

In other words, the era of KitKat is upon us. But have you experienced it yet for yourself? Take part in our poll with fellow Pocketables readers and let us know whether or not you are running KitKat on any of your devices, or whether you’re still stuck on an older version of Android for the time being.

Personally, I’ve moved exclusively to Nexus devices, and I’ve been running KitKat on my Nexus 7 since its factory image was first available. Additionally, both of the Nexus 4s in my house got the OTA update simultaneously a few days ago, and of course, my Nexus 5 has run KitKat out of the box. It’s times like these that my decision to jump all in with the Nexus line feels validated – I don’t think I would have been able to stand my old HTC EVO 4G LTE running Jelly Bean.

But what about you?
