If you are rocking the Google Play Editions of either the HTC One (M8) or the HTC One, then you were probably gleaming with joy when it was announced that your devices will receive Android 5.0 Lollipop this very Friday, November 21. This would have made them the first Google Play edition handsets to officially receive the latest and greatest iteration of Google's mobile OS.
While we don't know the reasons behind the delay, we suspect that it has something to do with the bugs that have plagued some Nexus devices in select markets. One of the more serious ones, in particular, is the flaw that seemingly prevents users from sending text messages.
