Looks like 4.3 is the same as 4.2.2 other than under-the-hood tweaks. Nothing on the interface or in the user experience has changed.

I was hoping that at some point, we'd be able to move apps to the sdcard without root.

Samsung said they are bringing this feature back for the gs4, but it won't be in android 4.3. If it comes with 4.3, that will be Samsung's TouchWiz doing, not Google's 4.3

I'm under the impression that 4.3 isn't available for ANY phone officially yet

My N4 still doesn't have it.

There's a ROM leak for the Google edition s4, but that's about it.

Any word if the GE rom is 9505 only or will there be one for that works with 9500 also? Specs I read for GE S4 phone makes it look like it is based on the 9505 hardware.

As for the whole apps, space issue: new official rom with move to SD support, root and folder mount = no space problem.

Might get lucky and find that it can be ported over to the I9500 but that would be it,I can't see Google or Samsung doing it for anyone! Personally I do quite like some if the Samsung features over Google's, I like the toggles available on Samsung Roms vs the Google edition :-)
