Several of you might remember the rant here and it appears it has been getting a lot of views here and a few on the Sprint community.
Yesterday Sprint announced they are pushing updates for the SM-T217S (okay they called it the Tab 3 7.0) to Android 4.4.2!! So, in all fairness I must update they are trying.
Here is a link to their notification.
Very happy to see that they are listening and at least attempting!
Update 3/12: Hmm…for some reason they redirect the above hyperlink to their overall news page now. Here is the link specifically: http://newsroom.sprint.com/blogs/devices-apps-and-services/sprint-starts-android-442-kitkat-upgrades-for-samsung-devices.htm
