Re: Some get it, some don't
My S3 from Verizon didn't get updated to Kitkat until almost a year after it was out and to add insult to injury it didn't have the latest version of Kitkat when I upgraded to the Note 4 last month.  The Nexus I had before the S3 (also from Veriszon) is still being used and has never been updated.  Way to go Verizon, NOT.

No Nexus 10
I'm sorry to see that the Nexus 10 is not on the list.  It's been a great tablet and could use the update sooner rather than later.  I"ve also upgraded to a Note 4.  What a wonderful phone!  I'd like to see Verizon and Samsung get the Note 4 updated soon but I won't hold my breath as these two are notorious for dragging their feet on updates, probably late next year.

Some get it, some don't
Sounds like a solid new version, but I wish the rollout wasn't so staggered. I have a Nexus 7 but from 2012. Do I not qualify for Lollipop? Samsung is not mentioned in the story, but I have a Galaxy S5. I'm sure Lollipop will be available for my devices at some point but the wait shouldn't depend on the brand of Android hardware you use. This is the main problem with Android -- too much fragmentation. Otherwise, I'm a happy user. :)
