KitKat roll-out for Yoga Tablets starting June

2014-04-20, 21:04 PM

Well, first of all I think, that this news deserve a separate topic, so please don't merge it with another one. Finally a Lenovo employee from Poland provided information about the KitKat roll-out for Yoga Tablets. For Wi-Fi version starting 9th of June and for the 3G version starting 23rd of June. Check out this link: LINK and here in German: LINK 

Solved! See the solution

The article says that roll-out will include all models and variations of the Yoga tablets, and it then goes on to quote the spec of the original Yoga 8 and 10 models, giving the impression that they will be updated. 

 

But it also mentions the introduction of these models in December 2013.  Weren't the original models introduced earlier than that ? 

 

Could it be that the roll out only applies to the HD+ models, or is that just rumour and speculation ?

I wouldn't trust anything coming "Lenovo Support in Poland."  It wouldn't be the first time Lenovo phone support provided incorrect information.  On the other hand, there was separate news that Mediatek will be releasing driver and kernel updates for KitKat, so there's some reason to hope we may get KitKat on the Yoga at some point.

Thanks for the replies.

 

In the event that the KitKat upgrade fails to happen, does the Yoga 10 still continue to receive essential security updates, bug fixes etc to 4.2 or is it abandoned in much the same way as Blackberry have done with the Playbook ?

 

I had a play around with a Yoga 10 in-store yesterday and was really impressed, but am undecided whether to go for it at its stock clearance price of £199 or hang off for the Yoga HD 10+ to be released, with the risk that it may be way over budget.  But I don't want to end up with something else that is completely unsupported.

Don't make too many hopes. Lenovo lacks support.

I am wondering if the KitKat updates for the Yoga Tablets are also compatible with the S6000 etc. cause apparently they are using the same processor (and overall have the same specs)?

Or am I wrong? :-) would be super cool.

They would not be compatible with S6000, they have different hardware and features even if the processor is the same.  That said, if MediaTek gives Lenovo what they need to update Yoga to KitKat, they should have what they need to update S6000 as well.

I rang Lenovo Support to see if I could get any further clarification on this and the person I spoke to cast doubt on whether KitKat would be coming to anything other than the soon to be released Yoga 10 HD+.  It was suggested that model would be released in May and receive the KitKat upgrade in June. 

 

I mentioned media articles claiming that KitKat would be coming to all Yoga tablet models, and he gave the impression that support and updates for the original Yoga 8 and 10 models could end on release of the new model and that they may not even be capable of handling KitKat in any case. 

 

I don't know whether that information is any more reliable or accurate than what has previously been posted, or is perhaps just more confusion and contradiction to add to the mix.
