When Marshmallow was first released, Motorola released a list of devices that it deemed Marshmallow-worthy. Noticeably absent from that list was the Moto E 2015 (2nd gen), despite the company promising timely updates in its marketing of the device 219 days earlier. That caused a legitimate online uproar from Moto E users who weren't expecting to be left behind so abruptly and cold-bloodedly. So what's the company to do to silence the cries of scorned loyal users? Do an about-face and fix the issue, that's what. Except it still didn't manage to fully solve the problem for everyone.
Motorola has sneakily updated the list of devices to receive Marshmallow on its site and added 4 new devices:
- Moto X Force
- DROID Turbo 2
- DROID Maxx 2
- 2015 Moto E with 4G LTE in Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia excluding China (2nd Gen)
The Moto E is the most interesting addition to that list. However, it seems like it'll only get it in select markets and what do you know, the US isn't one of them. Confused? So are we. Outraged? Get in line. We're all crossing the border to Canada together.
The other devices are Motorola's recently released Moto X Force, its US brother the Verizon DROID Turbo 2, and the DROID Maxx 2. Frankly, we were shocked that these even launched with Android 5.1 instead of 6.0 to begin with, so we're not that surprised to see them make the list.
US Moto E 2015 owners, we're here for you with tissues, ice cream jars, loose pajama pants, and episodes of Gilmore Girls. You can cry and voice your shock and contempt and hatred in the comments below, then we'll watch TV and maybe cuddle under a blanket and roast some marshmalloooOOPS. Sorry, that was close.
