January & February: What’s New and What’s in the Works



As before we’ll start with an update on how our rollout of Lollipop to capable devices is going. We’ve been providing timely updates here and below is a summary of where things stand:

In addition to the Lollipop updates, our office is bustling with activity and we’ve focused our priorities on a couple of big projects we’ve given voice too here in the past. Namely the launch of a new device, a new network, a new calling technology and a new way to finance your device. Phew, that’s a lot and we’re excited to reveal these new items to you in the upcoming months. This focus has caused certain projects we’ve outlined here in the past to be put on hold for future evaluation and we’ve transparently shown these at the bottom of the below listing.
