Rumour: Lollipop OTA for Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 to arrive November 3rd – other Nexus devices ‘later’

Android-Lollipop-Forest
There’s a fervour building for Lollipop now that it’s been announced, but when Nexus devices will receive the latest update hasn’t yet been announced. Google expects to drop updated Lollipop Developer preview images for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) tomorrow, but when a full push of finallised OTA’s will begin to all the Nexus devices hasn’t been officially announced. But there’s always rumours.

Android Police is reporting they have two sources advising that the OTA updates for the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi model (2012 AND 2013) and Nexus 10, will begin pushing out on November 3rd. Why? because there’s no cellular radios inside and those take more time apparently.

Dates for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 3G/LTE (2012 AND 2013) models haven’t been even rumoured, with their sources simply saying they will arrive a bit after the November 3rd push.

Excuse us while we start hitting those ‘Check for Update’ buttons now though.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I really hope it makes my Nexus 7 2012 useable, as it’s a useless laggardly dog of a thing at the moment.
