Google just released the official Android KitKat 4.4, and like the other versions of Android, the first question is whether your device get Android KitKat update or not? In the following we add the devices to get Android KitKat 4.4 on the list, based on the official statements of manufacturers.
Update 1 at November 2nd: Google, Motorola, and HTC are the companies officially announced their update schedule.
Update 2: Sony officially announced the list of Xperia devices to get Android 4.4

Update 12: LG Saudi Arabia, via their Twitter account, officially announces the availability of Android KitKat for LG G2, starting from the end the month. So, we can conclude that the global and wider roll out shouldn't be that far and other markets/carriers should be waiting for the update to hit their devices sometime in mid Q1 2014.
Update 12.1: Oops! LG Mobile Saudi Arabia seems to have sent a wrong info, as they announced the update is not about Android KitKat and is just about "upgrading the KnockOn feature to Lii series". So, if you own an LG G2 handset, you may have to wait a little longer, or more than a little, as some sources are suggesting end of the March for the KitKat rolling out date.
