    Android 5.0; Lollipop rolls from this week* for Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition devices…

    It’s Google’s latest, sweet software treat bringing some pretty cool features including;

    • A fresh, more streamlined take on user interface; “Material Design”
    • New look notifications and lock screen, so you only get the relevant info you need
    • Faster slicker performance; multiuser accounts and better battery life with “Project Volta”

    It’s also worth noting, we’ve published source code and binary files for custom ROM developers to build AOSP Lollipop for Xperia Z Ultra devices with an unlocked boot loader – get the full scoop over at Developer World.

    The update for Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition will hit over-the-air and should be with you soon – next up, we’re looking forward to bringing Android 5.0; Lollipop to the entire Xperia Z Series starting from the early part of 2015… so stay tuned for the latest!
