Source: Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA For Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi) And Nexus 10 Will Drop On Nov. 3rd, Other Devices Later In November

We have a reliable source (two, in fact) telling us that the first over-the-air updates to Android Lollipop will come not to the Nexus 4 or 5, but to the Nexus 7 (2012), Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi), and Nexus 10. Why? Because they're all Wi-Fi devices - supposedly hardware with cellular data will have to wait a bit longer to get the OTA, meaning the Nexus 4, 5, and 2013 Nexus 7 with LTE will be stuck a bit longer waiting for the L update.

Today it gets two new flagship options, the older Xperia Z1 and Z2.

Samsung Announces That The AT&T Galaxy Note 8.0 Android 4.4.2 Update Is Finally Going Out To Devices

Jelly Bean seemed to stick around longer than other versions of Android. While most previous iterations were content to move along with each point release, Jelly Bean stuck around for 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. It took quite a while for KitKat to arrive, and for some people, that wait has been longer than others.

If you purchased an AT&T Galaxy Note 8 back when it launched in 2013, you probably didn't think you would be stuck with Jelly Bean for this long.
