While owners of Nexus devices have been getting Android 5.0 updates all over the place for the last few weeks, Google Play Edition owners have had to wait a little longer. The first GPE device to get an over-the-air Lollipop update seems to be the LG G Pad 8.3 - or as it's affectionately known around here, the LGGP83GPE. Users on Twitter and XDA are reporting at least some OTA updates, and you can grab the ZIP file for a manual flash here (direct link).

Naturally you'll need a stock recovery in order for the OTA or an ADB manual flash to take, and any extensive modifications of the stock system (including root) are going to block it as well. Once you've got everything up and running, don't be surprised if you see a few bugs - the initial Android 5.0 updates for Nexus phones and tablets haven't been completely smooth.

GPE devices generally get very quick Android updates, but they're still a bit unpredictable, so we won't hazard a guess as to when the GPE phones will be getting a taste of Lollipop. Hopefully those users won't have too long to wait.
