Google officially announced Android 5.1 Lollipop a few days back and now Sony has been very quick to release the software binaries for the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Android 5.1 software binaries have been released for a number of devices including
Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2, Z2 Tablet, Z1, Z1 Compact, Z Ultra, E3, M2, T2 Ultra and T3. This means developers can use AOSP for the creation of new custom ROMs based on Android 5.1. There is no word which handsets will officially see Android 5.1 firmware, but we don’ expect this information before the Android 5.0 Lollipop rollout.
Thanks Gabriel and Rasheed!
