It is pretty much a bummer that this awesome device won’t at least ship with the latest and greatest version of Android, Android 4.3. According to DF insider info Verizon won’t update these devices until September 4th. This is good news and bad news. We could have expected that Verizon would need some time to add their bloatware and lock everything down, however in the past it has taken Verizon up to 6 months to release new versions of Android. This turn around will be pretty quick with September 4th only being a week away.
None of this is confirmed so take it with a grain of salt.
