verizon_moto_g_evleaks-630x581Boy, don’t you just love the efficiency of the folks over at Motorola? They surely did not waste much time at all, after the Motorola Moto G was introduced slightly more than a month ago, having worked hard to make sure that the Motorola Moto G will be on the receiving end of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system update today. Of course, the Moto G handsets that are eligible for this particular update will be the ones that were purchased from or in the US, and it would also enable Moto G users to be able to print out emails and photos from the phone (with the help of a connected printer, of course, just in case you had the idea of a built-in printer within the phone itself. Wait a minute, that ain’t too shabby an idea now, is it?).

Just what will this update bring? We are looking at newly designed status and navigation bars, a full-screen mode, support for color emojis, improved closed captioning, enhanced security, and smarter power use among others. There is also a brand new dialer that will enable you to look up contacts directly from the dialing pad, or you can always opt to tap frequent contacts in order to make a call. The camera on the Moto G should also see some improvement, but do not expect to capture 1-billion pixel images just yet. [Press Release]
