Overgrown, overpriced Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 lands on AT&T October 24

First Android 5.0 updates tipped for November 3 OTAs on Nexus 7 and 10

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know devices part of Google’s Nexus family will be first in line for Android 5.0 Lollipop updates, as they’ve been every time a new OS version was released.

Sweeeet: Sony plans to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop to entire Xperia Z Series

It’s the classic good news/bad news scenario. Hot on the heels of Motorola’s bold Android 5.0 Lollipop proclamations, Sony went on record with its own upgrading pledge. That’s the good news, of course, the bad being it’ll take the Xperia makers a few months to stabilize the first L port and send it OTA.

Android 5.0 Lollipop headed for HTC One M8, Nvidia Shield Tablet

Perhaps the best part of any new Android version announcement has little to do with the actual intro, going down in the days, weeks and months following the formal unveil.
