If I were you, I would not anticipate getting Android 4.4 Kit Kat for your phone anytime soon, despite all of the other Samsung devices that will receive it early next year.  I had the Skyrocket and it was always far behind the other models when ICS and JB came out, and Samsung has released so many devices since then that are getting way more attention.  The Skyrocket is probably near the bottom of their list of devices to upgrade AFTER all of their current devices (GS3, GS4, Note). 

Might be time to take advantage of some of the great holiday pricing and get the Galaxy S3 or S4 and put the Skyrocket away as a backup if updates are important to you.
