Just got my Slate 8 Pro a couple weeks ago and frankly I love it. HP you did great job with this tablet!
I was wondering when the update for Android 4.4 will be coming. I assume since this is one of HP's newest Tegra 4 Tablets it's surely going to get the update to KiKat.

Any news concering the update schedule?
In my opinion a PRO tablet should get a state of the art OS, in this case at least Android 4.3.
HP hasn't said a peep about this topic at all which is really disappointing. I called the Tech Support folks and got someone in India I believe. They were only able to give me the canned corporate response. "Go to the Settings and then About Tablet then select Check for Updates. If there are updates available it will be shown there." They couldn't provide any answers to my questions at all.
In my opinion the Slate 8 Pro is great tablet made by company with pathetic feedback to their customers and support that's quite laughable. If HP was planning on being a competitor in the Tablet market they better get on the stick and start giving us feedback on our legimate questions. Otherwise, they won't have any repeat customers and the word of mouth adverstising will be quite acidic making other people think twice about buying their products. Futhermore, I don't even think actual HP employees, who would know something, even read these kind of posts anyhow.

Wasn't aware this update was available. If this is indeed the KitKat update then I applaud HP for keeping their tablets updated with the latest OS. My previous experience with tablet manufactures has not been good when it comes to OS updates. Thanks for the heads up!

HP plans to upgrade the HP Slate 8 Pro to Kit Kat. The timing of the upgrade is not currently available.
When you upgrade your HP tablet, you are getting an operating system that has been tailored to and tested for your specific tablet.
As long as you have registered your device with Google, the new OS will come through automatically when you connect to the Internet. You can also look for updates by going to your settings on your device.
How to check for system updates
You must be connected to the Internet to check for updates. Use the following steps to check for system updates on your tablet:
1. On the Home screen, touch the All apps icon, and then touch the Settings icon.
2. In the System section, touch About tablet .

5. Install any available system updates.
