    It will be interesting to see what happens if Nexus 6 is also on Verizon!

    And chances of Turbo launching with L are zero - Nexus phones are sent to production at last possible instant to get the latest build. Droid would've been submitted for certification to Big Red at least 6 months ago.

    In the past, Verizon used to rarely release flagship devices that would compete with each other too close together. They usually gave 2 weeks for each to have its time. With the Z3v being released on the 23rd and the rumor of the Nexus possibly being released this month, it seems a little busy for release of the turbo. We also haven't seen the leaks of the assessories and promotional material arrive at Verizon yet. I am getting a little worried that the release of the turbo is not coming as soon as we would like.

    I'm pretty sure Verizon execs are busy trying to decide how to market and promote the 3 phones coming up - Nexus 6 (if it indeed is coming), Z3v, and Turbo. The Turbo no doubt will get premier treatment as its Verizon's pet brand, and its entirely likely that The Nexus 6 will be delayed to make sure the Turbo sells.

    Where does this rumor I keep seeing referenced around here about the Nexus landing this month come from? The BGR and PocketNow reports just said "later this year." And the 6 won't launch without Android L, and that's also not rumored to be ready until later in Q4.

    So I don't think Verizon is worried about the Nexus competing with the Turbo at launch, assuming the Turbo launches this month as reported. The Turbo is going to have a nice window as the marquee device on VZW.

    Well this does fit into the leak of a 28th/29th announcement with a 30th release. We can hope.

    Will depend on the kindness of strangers to keep me informed here. Last thing I want is Verizon sending me all their promotional e-mail 'crap'.

    Thanks for the update on possible dates.

    I have not seen anything concrete but there are rumors that the Max will launch with L
    I doubt that very much. No one is expecting L to land this month, but this phone will.
    I may have to eat these words! The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order, complete with Lollipop, on Oct. 29! So the Turbo really could ship with 5.0. (Although it still doesn't look like it from the renders...)

    Google reveals the $649 Nexus 6, pre-orders begin on October 29th

    Sadly, the just posted "Meet the Nexus Family" Youtube page doesn't include a 5" device...

    So I saw this announcement on phone arena. "Motorola confirmed that it would bring Lollipop to the following smartphones: Moto X (1st and 2nd generation), Moto G (1st and 2nd generation, plus the Moto G LTE), Moto E, Motorola Droid Ultra, Motorola Droid Maxx, and Motorola Droid Mini." I do not see the Turbo on the list. Might that be because it will launch with it or did they just forget to mention it?

Now why wasn't the Turbo mentioned? Is this because it will be launched with Lollipop or did they just forget to mention it? SORRY for the nearly identical post.

    I would love to see it launched with it but I do not believe it will. I think the Nexus will be first to launch with it. I do not think the manufacturers have a final version yet. I think it wasn't mentioned because it officially hasn't been even announced.

    It hasn't been announced yet. They aren't going to put it on the upgrade list before it officially exists.

    I take it as they are only referencing phones that are already released and expect any new phone will get updated as well.

    I think if it is released after the Nexus 6 it will have lollipop if it is released before or at the same time it may still have Kit Kat and be updated very shortly after release. There is no way the Droid turbo is going to beat the Nexus 6 as the release device for lollipop so I am hoping that the Nexus 6 gets released within the next few weeks so the Droid turbo can be shortly after that. I am going to Vegas for a trip so hopefully I can win one lol.
