The long wait is over. Five months after Google announced ‘Android L’ at Google I/O 2014 and nearly three weeks after it officially confirmed the name ‘Android 5.0 Lollipop’, the new operating system has been released.

Google didn’t break down the roll out of Lollipop, but it is widely expected that Nexus 7 and 10 tablets will be the first legacy devices to receive the update. Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 smartphones will be close behind followed by Google Play handsets. The update will start rolling out today and you will be notified automatically when it hits your device.

As for everyone else, Motorola is set to be first out the gate and is promising updates to its bargain Moto E, remarkable Moto G and flagship Moto X (my smartphone of the year) within 30 days. What happens to current Verizon exclusive super phone, the Droid Turbo, is less clear.

HTC , LG, Sony and Samsung have all promised updates to their flagship models by early 2015
