NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet to get Android 5.0 Lollipop

If you've been keeping score of the device manufacturers that have been rallying behind the newly minted Android 5.0 Lollipop, you may have noticed that, along with some Korean brands, NVIDIA wasn't on the early bird list. Worry not if you're a fan, as the graphics chip maker was apparently just a bit late to the party. So yes, NVIDIA is promising that the latest Android version "and more" will be coming to the multi-talented SHIELD Tablet. As for its other mobile devices, however, we can only speculate.

Rumored Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition might arrive with Android Lollipop

Of course, the latest Android smartphones getting a taste of Lollilop is imminent. It’s just a matter of when or how soon phone makers and carriers will roll out the update. We’re still rooting for the Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition to be released soon but it’s taking Google some time. We don’t know why but at least we know that a Lollilop-powered Galaxy S5 will be available soon together with new Nexus phones.

Android Lollipop brings new kill switch feature to smartphones

Much has been said about kill switch especially after the California kill bill switch passed the State Senate last May. Apple went ahead of Google last year by introducing Activation Lock as opt-in but the feature was made made opt-out for the new iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 phones. We learned back in June that Android would be getting its own kill switch feature soon and it has arrived together with the Android Lollipop.

Android Lollipop statue unveiled, sweet ads released on YouTube

Android 5.0 is finally here and it’s sweeter than ever. We were expecting Lemon Key Pie, Lady Finger, or Licorice but never really thought it would be very simple: Lollipop. Actually, the first time we heard about the Android 5.0 being the Lollipop was September last year when a concept video for the next Android OS was released.

Android 5.0 Lollipop: what kinds of sweetness to expect

Google today dropped a load of goodies, from the expected Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices, to the surprise Nexus Player Android TV contraption. Tying all of these together, however, is one that has been, sometimes rather comically, speculated on since June. Android 5.0 is in town, and its name is Lollipop. But before you go making fun of this seemingly unassuming name, first try to hear out the sweet things that the latest Android version will bring. At least for those devices that are fated to receive it.

This is the HTC Nexus 9 for movers and makers

The fated day has indeed arrived and Google has unleashed a flood of Android announcements that proves to the world that it is still at the top of its game. Leaked and speculated on time and again, Google is indeed finally giving Android lovers a newer tablet to desire. And indeed it is made by HTC, the manufacturer's first tablet in a very long time. And indeed, as well, the Nexus 9 has turned out to be quite everything we have dreamed the next reference Android tablet would be.

Here comes the Motorola Nexus 6 to offer more of everything

Google has indeed come out with the next Nexus smartphone along with a new tablet today. As has been repeatedly leaked and tipped, the Nexus 6 bears Motorola's mark, making it the first Nexus device to come from the manufacturer's portfolio. But the Nexus 6 is also a first for Google, its first smartphone to completely cross the line from a handy size to one that trades in comfort for more room to display things.

Android 5.0 hinted at by Google in Twitter post

Google may have tipped their hat to Android 5.0. In a recent Twitter post announcing a fun new Google Now utility, some users noticed the time on the clock said 5:00. That’s uninteresting move, considering Google has hinted to new Android iterations via the same method in the past.
