A major update for a major news publication's Android application has dropped in the Play Store. The NYTimes - Latest News app has donned its new material design duds, and I have to say, it looks pretty good.  The new design is very clean and stark, with white backgrounds and menus standing in sharp contrast to black text and icons.

Android 5.1 Includes New Carrier Provisioning API, Allows Carriers Easier Methods Of Setting Up Services On Devices They Don't Control

One of the more interesting behind-the-scenes additions in Android 5.1 is a new carrier provisioning API that provides functionality which likely benefits carriers and customers alike.

From the evidence available, it seems that some indirect, non-corporate retailers received stock around the 2014 holiday season and were almost always selling the tablets for $99 on contract.
