After announcing the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update was rolling out to their Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact phones, it appears that Sony has expanded the availability to their recent tablets, as well as their previous flagship phone.
Xperia Blog is reporting that the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 tablet (16GB Wi-Fi and LTE versions), as well as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (Wi-Fi and LTE) are now receiving the Android 5.0 update (5.0.2 to be exact). As with the Xperia Z3/Z3 Compact, the update for the Xperia Z2 is apparently live in Nordics and Baltic regions, with the update for the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia Z2 Tablet only showing up in the Nordic region so far.
At this stage only Telstra has scheduled the Android 5.0 push for the Xperia Z2, with Vodafone listing the update as still waiting to be recieved, while Optus still has no indication that Android 5.0 for the Z2 is even in testing. The Xperia Z2 Tablet and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact only hit Australia as outright purchases so their updates won’t see carrier testing.
The build for any of these tablets or the phone haven’t shown up in Australia as yet, but there are definitely ways to install the update if you’re really keen to grab it.
If you’ve installed the firmware for any of the Sony devices with an official build available, let us know what you think.
