I may get a new phone soon to replace my dying one. What kind, I do not yet know, but hopefully it'll be something far better than the piece of #@!$ I'm using now, but once I have it, I'll let you know what I got.

I went to Best Buy store and saw new HTC Nexus 9 with Android 5.0 Lollipop. I played with it. It seems flawless and quickly respond. I really like it.

Lollipop update will coming to my HTC One M8 in January/February.

Why do thy call it an Android Lollipop ? So kids will want it ??

I doubt it-

judging from the list it's just another 'code' name and they seem to keep it to food related themes. Kind of cool if you ask me- developers, programmers etc get bored so they get creative with names lol. Much like Windows and Apple (Snow Leopard? Panther? Hmm okay...)

Also if you look at list, starting after Beta, it is sweet/dessert type food.

Sounds good, but I have no plans to upgrade my phone at this time. There is always new features coming once in a great while. Still using KitKat (Version 4.4.2)
