Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10 Android 5.0 Lollipop update allegedly postponed for November 12
Looking around, and there's no sugary Lollipop for your Nexus 4, 5, 7 and 10 to suck on? Well, Google might have postponed the official update, which was originally scheduled to air this week, for exactly a week from now, November 12th.

The allegedly belated rollout is rumored caused by Google's desire to iron out last minute bugs and fixes, so the extra wait is for good. Alternatively, the Mountain View folks might want the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for your device to coincide with the Nexus 6 official launch, so as there are no hurt feelings that someone with a lowly Nexus 4 is flaunting the newest version before you got your hands on your huge 6" phablet with the sugary candy.

On one hand it's kind of annoying that Google updates their devices this way. One could says it's "less organized" but this is part of the reason Google doesn't need to roll out a bunch of bug fix updates in the weeks following the first update.

I dont get it? How is it annoying or less organized? They moved it back one whole week before they launch it on the Nexus line.

What I'd like to know is if they are intending on doing a "All nexus at once" update or if they are going to do one or 2 devices at a time a few days apart.

Same here for my Nexus 7. I'd rather have no bugs and let them do more testing.

They do by posting the factory image. As soon as it's available I'm flashing it on my Nexus 5.

Oh well. My Moto X is still going to get the update within 30 days, so I'm pretty jazzed anyway.

2013. I might be wrong about how soon it is, but even if I am I'm not too bothered by waiting.

Yeah. Android is a point now where waiting for an update is fine as there are mostly feature additions.

Unlike old versions where every update use to bring tremendous bug fixes, less lag and battery fixes.

I really want to upgrade to the Nexus 5 (from the 4) as I feel Google will likely drop support for the Nexus 4 pretty soon.

My Nexus 4 (1.5 years old) runs great and the battery charging might be an issue, so I'm thinking more about upgrading. I don't want something that's gonna take forever to update

I see the Google updates are still sporadic across even the Nexus devices. Press the button and release the firmware for all Nexus devices on the same day, theres really no excuse. It's already out on the Nexus 9 so just get it done. It was the same when i owned my Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 back in the day, i see nothing has changed...

Everyone can do it, they just have to wait until it's ready for all devices. The difference is they don't think its a big deal to release one first when ready and neither do I.

It's not like they are months apart. Just a week after the Nexus 9.

No need to hurry, now that I'm guaranteed that I'll get the update, I don't care when I'll get it as long as it is within 3 months. Just iron out major bugs.

I just hope it will be a full flegded Lillipop with all the animations and launcher for the Nexus4 (which I've been using for almost 2 years). And not something like what KitKat, were the launcher didn't come with it..!

C'mon Motorola, can you send the update out before Nexus devices get it this year?...
