Sprint's LG G3 Is Getting Android 5.0 Lollipop Today, Just As Previously Leaked

Sprint's LG G3 today becomes the newest member of the Lollipop club. We had a leaked document from Sprint a few weeks back that pointed to today as the big day, and indeed it is. You may begin attacking the update button now.

Verizon's Ellipsis 7 Tablet Isn't Ready For Lollipop, Gets KitKat Update Instead

The Verizon Ellipsis 7 launched in November of 2013, a time shortly after Google released the Nexus 5 and manufacturers were thinking about pushing KitKat to their devices. Given the timing, it made sense that Verizon didn't ship Android 4.4 on its tablet.

But man, the carrier sure took its time. Three months after the world has had time to become acquainted with Lollipop, Verizon has decided to push KitKat out to its 7-inch tablet.

AT&T LG G3 Getting Its Taste Of Lollipop - Nearly 700MB D85020f Update Packs Android 5.0.1

AT&T G3 owners are getting the update they've been looking for today, as Android 5.0.1 finally has begun rolling out for the device. The new software version is D85020f, with an Android build number of LRX21Y (dated October 21, 2014).

The OTA should come down in the form of a 689MB package, which will take you approximately an eon to download from AT&T's decrepitly slow update server. Once you have it, the 5-minute or so install process will complete, and presto amazo: you've got Lollipop. What's new? Well, a lot - LG's revamped its notification shade and lock screen to be a bit more in line with Android's current layout on Nexus devices (though it's still not exactly what I'd call similar), and of course you'll notice the new software navigation button icons.

Verizon Ellipsis 8 Receives OTA Update, Just In Case You Bought One For Some Reason

We previously provided you with an in-depth, totally true* report on the origins of the Verizon Ellipsis 8, thanks to the efforts of dedicated Android Police writer Michael Crider. It was pretty clear from the hard-hitting coverage, if I may be so bold as to toot our own horn a second time, that this was an overpriced, no-name tablet that nerds and disinterested folks alike would be better off not spending their money on.

But maybe you missed our coverage. May you're so enamored with Big Red that you had to own something with the Verizon logo stamped just below the screen.

Sprint's HTC One M8 Lollipop Update Has Apparently Been Pushed Up From February 13th To Today

Yesterday we got our hands on a leaked Sprint document suggesting that the HTC One M8 would get its Android 5.0 update on February 13th. Next to it in parenthesis were the words subject to change. As it turns out, sometimes things actually do change. The carrier has posted an HTC One M8 support page that says the over-the-air update is going out today.

The software bumps things up to software version 4.20.651.10 and provides a sweet serving of Lollipop. I received the big 5.0 OTA for the HTC One M7 yesterday, and while it's not the same phone, things line up pretty well with the M8 screenshots that have already made the rounds.
