Both the first- and second-generation Nexus 7s and the Nexus 10 are to get an Android 5.0 Lollipop update on November 3 — the same day the software debuts on the new Nexus 9 — according to sources familiar with Google’s plans. The search giant appears to be focusing on Wi-Fi only devices first, before bringing Lollipop to the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5.

If you’ve got a Nexus 4 or 2012’s Nexus 7, there’s no need to worry about upgrading your hardware to get Android 5.0 Lollipop. Google has confirmed that both of these devices will be receiving its latest software update, along with the Nexus 5, last year’s Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10.

NVIDIA has all but confirmed an HTC Nexus 9 tablet packing its 64-bit Tegra K1 processor by mentioning the device in a lawsuit filed against Qualcomm and Samsung. The chip maker expects the tablet to begin shipping during the third quarter of 2014, and some believe it could be announced at HTC’s “Double Exposure” event on October 9.

Not only is it expected to look good, but a recent specifications leak suggests it will have a super-speedy 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and 4GB of RAM, blowing every other Android-powered tablet right out of the water.
