    I second that... It would be an epic fail if it takes til spring to roll out the update. It is like a pot on the stove, water will not come to a boil if you keep an eye on it. Stop worrying about when you will get the update and before you know it it will be here

    I'm with you... I'm happy with my Turbo with Kit Kat. When Big Red and Motorola get lollipop right for the Turbo, so be it...

    Thanks for the info, bizzyqu. My prior "bogus" was also based on the assumption it was a tweet. I'm actually following that account on Instagram.

    That said, while "bogus" isn't appropriate, I find it highly unlikely that anyone is going to give us a "date" for the Lollipop rollout to the Turbo. "Spring" is a generic CYA type answer, I figure. When it comes much sooner, how happy will the masses be?

    Of course, I also had a Maxx that missed several incrimental updates "waiting" for that next one that was going to be so much better, you know, because it's coming soon anyway. Drove me sort of nuts.

    Although disappointing, I would not be surprised if 'Spring 2015' turns out to be true.

    I say this based on assumption, conjecture, rumor, blog post, android news sites, and my experience working in software development.

    In the Motorola Turbo forums, someone posted the rumor that 5.0.1, 5.0.2, etc would only be for those with 5.0 only, which could easily be accurate (although I though something went straight to 5.0.1)

    However with recent news of 5.1 to be released early to mid February, with significant fixes; silence/vibration, possible memory leak, etc, I could certainly see Motorola/Verizon wanting to wait for 5.1 instead of pushing 5.0.x and trying to turn around and push 5.1 for those fixes quickly after just updating (cost, headaches)

    Now assuming mid-Feb release, and assuming Moto X (2014) would get it first say two weeks later, and Turbo following conservatively 2 - 4 weeks afterwards, that would put us in mid to late March (maybe even early April) for the Turbo update, so I could see Spring 2015 as accurate.

    Now, I have been excited for Lollipop early after Material Design and other features were announced before the actual release, however when I moved from my Moto X (2013) and choose the Turbo over the Moto X (2014) for battery and specs, I knew that this was a risk

    But K has three sticks merging together at one point (two, depending on how it is formed) and J is just a curve with a longer line on the side. I consider that to be a huge difference to go from sharp corners to a softer curve.

    And then there's L. The ol 90 degree right angle whose child version has an identity crisis in looking like I.

    I see no problem with I looking like I but I find it odd that l looks like I when I is looking at I

    Weren't we promised end of 2014? I don't mind. I would like lollipop ASAP, but it's no priority. The thing that bugs me is broken promises. If I wanted those, I would have stayed on Windows Phone.

    Exactly. Followed by the obligatory 2 months worth of posts after the rollout about how it screwed up everybodys' phones.

    Gotta love the hard core "must have the software now!" people as well as the hardcore "Easy bro, who needs the software now, just wait!" people.

    Bottom line for me, we've all waited long enough, it's time for the software to be close or done. You can't REALLY work the kinks out until the consumer has it.

    Bring on 5.0!

    I agree. I am usually annoyed by defenses of delays as the powers that be working out the bugs so we get an even better release. Then, another release is close so let's just wait for that one!

    That's exactly what happened a couple of times with the '13 Droids (I had the Maxx), so I'm particularly sensitive to it again.

    I really don't think we want Lollipop right now anyway. It's still pretty buggy according to the Nexus users out there. I want new software as much as the next guy, but I want it to be not broken.

    Let's just chill and pretend Kit Kat is the only software available. Then when the new software comes it'll be a joyous day. My turbo is working fine no issues and I even learned how to get the camera going to my satisfaction just takes some practice.. But just chill regarding the update otherwise you're going to drive yourself crazy and give yourself agida... There are more important things to worry about than a software update specially a software thats buggy.. Once the software is released then everyone is going to b**** and moan about the bugs... So for now enjoy your bug free phone

    Depressing information in an already fragmented OS. I know no one uses human editors anymore, but I wish people who blog would at least review their own shyte before they post -- what a typo mess that was.

    Addendum on self editing: I admit, I shudder sometimes when I re-read something I've posted previously and see all the typos I missed.

    I agree about the lack of proofreading ("No Where to be Seen" - good grief!). I am getting the feeling, however, that Lollipop isn't being rolled out by carriers with the same enthusiasm as KitKat. AT&T in particular has been positively mute on the subject and they're usually not that far behind Verizon.
