    Well, pleased and disappointed are the mixed emotions I'm feeling. I would have liked to see the update sooner but I'm glad that they've concentrated on resolving known problems rather than pushing a half-baked update that creates problems.

    Now I'm hoping they will just push the 5.1 to the Turbo and not make us put up with what ever 5.0.1 or 0.2 causes on our devices

    So I clicked on the link in what you posted . What phone are they talking about ? That could be for any newer phone produced this year . The way you wrote this you make it sound like it's the Turbo. I'm hoping for sooner than February.

    Just makes no sense why Google insists on pushing out these major updates that are half baked at best. They've been doing it since Gingerbread.....why break tradition I guess.

    When is the Turbo going to get the 5.(?) update and which one is the big question out there. I didn't mean to offer the information to say the Turbo was going to skip over 5.0.1 or .2 and go 5.1. the last update Info. offered by Moto. was the Turbo was getting the update of 5.(?) in the near future of 2014. These "SmartPhones" have made us a bunch of update junkies, When am I going to get my next push? LOL.

    I think the confusion here stems from the fact that this was posted in the Turbo forum, and people may have thought this information was somehow Turbo related. Evidently this is general information with no direct correlation to a specific phone.

    My advice to anyone who may not have experienced a "Big" update - sometimes Not the Best thing that will happen to you that day.
    Just sayin.......
