Nexus 9 should see the Android 5.1 update soon

Nexus_9_LTEThe Nexus 9 is Google’s only tablet that hasn’t been updated to Android 5.1, which is extremely weird considering how old (and discontinued!) some of the other Nexus tablets are.

Lucky T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge user gets updated to Android 5.1.1


We just heard that Samsung is bringing Guest Mode to the Android 5.1 update, and now it’s rolling already? One user over at XDA is reporting that his T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge received the Android 5.1.1 update.

I don’t think this means that it’s officially rolling out, but it does mean that it’s being tested which is a good thing. It’s more than likely that it’s pure luck that his device received it. There could be others, but who knows if they even read tech blogs.
