    You'll find out when the rest of us do - when the announcement of the release date is made. No one gets advance notice.

    I haven't even received 4.4.4 yet, what's up with that? I'll never get lollipop if things move this slowly.I love Samsung's high end tablets and the touchwiz is not so bad(I just use a nova launcher because I like the design better), the bloatware really doesn't bother me.The one thing I don't like is how long it takes to get software updates.Is there anything I can do to get 4.4.4 sooner ?

    The 4.4.4 update is for the most part just for phones because it updates phone exclusive features of KitKat. The way to get the newest os before Samsung releases the update is by rooting your tablet and flashing a custom recovery such as twrp or clockwork mod and then flashing a custom ROM such as nexus experience ROM or a AOSP ROM, you can find those on the XDA developers website. Keep in mind that rooting will void your warranty and could break your tablet if you don't know what you are doing.
    sure why not likes this.

    I was reading someplace (maybe the other Lollipop thread in this section) that because Samsung has released SO many devices in the last 6-12 months, we may be hung out to dry when it comes to getting 5.0 on our tablets. That goes against any agreement they may have made with Google to provide updates for 18 months after release though.

    Just look at all the devices they released late last year, 3-4 new tablets, several phones. Then consider the manpower needed to update EVERYTHING and you realize the "old" stuff, even the stuff that's less than 18 months old, will likely be left out in the cold.

    T-Mobile has released 4.4.4 for the note 10.1 2014 edition. I'm running it now.

    i stopped buying cheaper devices because i wanted to have things like accessories available but even more, to have better support and upgrades.
    so what do i do? i buy a samsung galaxy note 10.2014 instead of a surface pro 2. both of which were the best competing options for what i wanted in a tablet.

    Can you post a screenshot showing the version of the OS? I find it hard to believe you got an OTA Lollipop update for this device and NOBODY else has heard a thing about it.

    If anyone has any doubt to what they have as version of OS, Tap Settings > General > About Device and tap "Android Version" about 6 times really fast if you get the big "K" you are still on Kitcat...

    Just for giggles tap big "K" screen a few more times...

    Looks like this is not going to happen. There are no indications what so ever. My best and last Samsung tablet probably.

    Lollipop has already been confirmed for the SM-P600 and SM-P601, now it's just a matter of time.

    The sm-p601 update was confirmed by T-Mobile, their news page said that they are testing it. As for the SM-p600 someone on xda asked a Samsung rep and the rep said that it will be updated. You can find this on our device forum on xda under the "general" section.

    Because we ALL know how reliable the info is when it comes from a "rep" that someone gets on the phone . I read somewhere else that the 601 would get it because it used a common chip with other devices that already have it but the 600 uses an Exynos chip and was less likely to get it as a result.

    I agree with you on the rep reliability part, however the p601 has the exact same Exynos chip that the p600 has. The main difference between the two is the modem and other than that they are almost identical.

    And the rep was on the Samsung website, so it was not a phone call, which means that the conversation was documented.

    Was it? The post I saw said it was on a phone call, here:
    I can confirm that Samsung themselves are working on a 5.0.2 update, and possibly a 5.1.2 as well. They told me, via phone call (long story), that it would be released q3 2015, possibly, but no later than the end of the year.
