Android upgrades. Here: Lenovo

This is the Yoga Tab 2 Pro (YT2-1380L). A wonderful tablet. It shipped with Android 4.4. Less than a year ago. Google shipped two big upgrades, 5.0 and 5.1, both called Lollipop, since then. Next week, Google is going to upgrade all Nexus devices introduced in the last two years to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And Lenovo has one more day to fulfill on its promise to upgrade this product to 5.0. Two version down by next week. And then it starts delivering the Yoga 3 Pro, with Android 5.1.

If you read this upgrade matrix thoroughly, you are going to buy a Surface or an iPad. Those get the upgrade on the very first day. For three years and more.

Lenovo, if I could make a wish: don't lose time writing software that nobody wants. Ship plain and simple Android, and upgrade in weeks, not months. Keep doing so for three years.
