    Google announced officially the next update to lollipop in 5.1. Features will include dual sim support, HD voice calls, device protection, and is expected to be build number LMY47D. So if you own a nexus be one the look out for the ota, or just wait for google to load the factory images and flash the software manually.

    There are a few factory images up now for 5.1.0, just loaded within the hour it seems. What an odd assortment though!

    Nexus 5 "hammerhead"
    Nexus 10 "mantaray"
    Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi) "nakasi"

    I expect the others will come shortly. If things prove better, I may finally update my Nexus 7 (2013) to Lollipop. And I hope the Nexus 4 is improved in the new update--both of our Nexus 4 phones have been somewhat flaky since Lollipop came OTA.

    (I cheated a bit. ;) I use a browser add-on to monitor a page for changes.)

    For real though if you would have told me my Nexus 5 would get an update before my nexus 6 I wouldn't believe you. What the heck Google?
