At the XDA developers Forum, a user was able to put the Android KitKat into the Sony Xperia Tipo. The Tipo is a low-end device and [easyazon_link asin=”B0093HKM7M” locale=”US” new_window=”default” tag=”frpche0f-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” nofollow=”default” popups=”default”]costs 115$ at Amazon[/easyazon_link].

Sony Xperia Tipo with Android KitKat
This unnoficial release will allow you to have the Display working, touch screen, Led notifications, Audio, Vibrator and Bluetooth 100% functional. Nonetheless, you won’t have GMS, WiFi, Vold Managed Partitions or the Camera funcion. So this will be just a toy to experimen the ROM and not much more than that.
Why having Android KitKat on the Xperia Tipo is nice?
The Android Kitkat was released with the backed up information that it would run in almost all Android Devices and this is the evidence of that statement as the 800 MHz device with a Cortex A5 processor are totally low-end features for a good Android device. So we can hope to get 50% of the devices able to completely run this OS after it gets officially released.
Now we really have to wait for 2014 to see new Android Kitkat Sony devices!
