Android Lollipop hits AOSP; HTC sets the upgrade pace

Google has pushed the Android Lollipop source code to the AOSP, which means the clock is ticking. Now that the source is final (at least for version one) and available, many handset owners will be looking to their OEM to find out when they’ll get the new Android flavor. Some have spewed a good game ahead of today about upgrades, so we’ll be anxiously awaiting Lollipop on our devices. Others, like HTC, aren’t so much as talking a blind-faith game as giving a deadline.

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

Nexus 6 hands-on – A whole lot of Lollipop

A new Nexus is always a big deal, but the Nexus 6 is big in every sense. Google and Motorola opted to go large for the latest pure-Android smartphone, giving Lollipop a vast 5.96-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad HD touchscreen in which to ply its "Material Design" wares. In fact, the Moto X stylings carried over from Motorola's own-brand flagship are deceptive, and side-by-side there's a considerable difference between the two. Google has kept the real magic for itself, nonetheless, and the Nexus 6 is shaping up to be as capable as it's coveted.

Motorola Mobility is now in Lenovo’s pocket

Lenovo is now the proud owner of Motorola Mobility, the ink finally dry on the acquisition of the smartphone company. Brought out from under Google's umbrella - or, as some might argue, from beneath its shadow - the deal will see Motorola continue to operate its own brand, as well as further develop the Moto and DROID franchises that have included recent releases like the Moto X and the DROID Turbo. It also means a return to the Chinese market, something Motorola has been absent from for some years.
