[Update: Full Casting Video With Sad (L)osers] Google Posts 'Sweeeeet' Video That Confirms Android 5.0

Rumor has it tomorrow is a big day for the Android world. Of course officially, Google hasn't made a peep about potential new devices, their announcement date, or Android's upcoming L incarnation, but we've heard plenty about the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 (and its accessories), and L itself.

Sundar Pichai, however, has shared a video clearly meant to tease the Android community (already stirred to a fever pitch) at least one more time, following the story of the L casting call, where various desserts audition for the role of L's official mascot.

Google Unveils The Android Lollipop Statue, And It's Surprisingly Literal

Google's Building 44 is the home of the Android team, and its lawn is the home of the iconic Android statues. Each version gets a place on the lawn, and the newly announced lollipop is no different.

Don't Panic, The Nexus 6 Will Come With Support For Wireless Charging

There have been many reasons to sweat over whether the Nexus 6 will come with wireless charging support. The new Moto X that it's derived from doesn't support the feature, and there's zero mention of it on Google's Nexus 6 page. Well, you can rest easy now. This year's Nexus phone will still have support for wireless charging. It's listed on the device's full spec sheet.

The support is built-in, so you won't have to invest in a case or some other contraption to get things to work.

Google Clarifies The Nexus 4 Will Get Android 5.0 Lollipop

Don't panic! Despite the original Lollipop announcement stating the update would "be available on Nexus 5, 7, 10 and Google Play edition devices in the coming weeks," it looks like Nexus 4 owners won't be left out in the cold after all.

Googler Sascha Prüter clarifies in a Google+ post that the Nexus 4's conspicuous absense is "just a mistake." Indeed, the error is already fixed. There's no specific word on timing, but if history is anything to go by, the N4 will fall right in line with the rest of the Nexus updates soon enough.

Google Announces US Carrier Availability For The Nexus 6: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular... And Verizon

The Nexus 6 looks to be Google's most widely-released phone ever, at least in the context of United States carriers. While the company has taken an "unlocked first" approach to carrier partnerships since the ill-fated Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it has offered at least some of the traditional phone sales on the Nexus 5. For the new Motorola Nexus 6, every major American carrier will have a phone option, though whether that means there's one phone that will work with all or there will be multiple versions, we can't say at the moment.
