I truly hope the original Moto X gets that update also. Weeks & months of waiting. Even though it may cause my phone problems at least if its sometime before the end of this year I'll still be under warranty.

Hoping it will resolve at least some of the issues I have, but after six months I have "we'll see" attitude.  This has soured me to the point I'll never buy another Motorola.

I had a htc one m8(windows) and i went to upgrade on the edge program.  I told the sales clerk i wanted the Nexus 6 and i got something about "you're only eligible for the Apple 5 (screw that garbage) or the Droid Turbo".  I then asked the sales clerk if Droid Turbo has/will run Android 5.0 and he assured me it would.........that was back in March and my LG 8.3 tablet has lollipop and my Droid Turbo is still without........very not happy.

A motorola software engineer was quoted in a couple articles I read.  What caught my eye was his remark that users shouldn't expect it to be bug free.  This after skipping 5.0 because it had bugs.  I wonder if he works in the political division of motorola?

I saw where the engineer said it was coming in the future, but didn't see where he said June 10th anywhere.

It is a PR mistake, but as a software developer I understand his statement to mean "nothing is ever bug free but its better than before", which is true. You are using abstractions on top of abstractions and have millions of states once you add inputs and outputs. You do your best and test for everything you can think of, but nothing can ever been guaranteed to be 100% bug free. I'm sure Motorola would've rather him to say, " yea, its bug free" though 🙂

I've never expected any software to be bug free,  but to leave folks hanging for seven months just to provide different bugs... Smacks of an issue someone did not want made public. 

If the same engineers that built 5.0 are responsible for 5.1,  why expect anything different?

Well it appears the rumor was false, it's 9am west coast time, I would ASSUME it would have been made official by now if it was going out today.  Not a peep.

Well, at least they remain consistently unreliable.

It was just a rumor.  They never confirmed or denied it.

Being a rumor didn't stop 15 websites with Android in the name restating it as true and using it for click bait.

This is completely Verizon's fault.  They don't care about their customers apparently.  They've got their signed contract and/ or their $600 for the phone, plus the monthly residual income coming in.  Why should they give a damn?  ALL the other AnDROID devices in the market using Lollipop (12.2% at last report), and the DROID Turbo owners are left out to dry.  This device should have been the FIRST device to receive the update.  It's the same build as a Nexus 6 which has had the update for how many months.  Verizon is only about the $'s and not about the customers who pay those dollars

Nope...

Here's is Motorola still working on the update.  There is NOTHING Verizon can do if Motorola hasn't even finished an update... 

Hey, I wanted to give a quick update on our progress on the DROID Turbo 5.1…
