Google confirms Android Lollipop updates for older Nexus models

Google has amended its initial blog post to now clarify that the Nexus 4 will join its younger Nexus siblings in the embrace of Android 5.0. But what about the Nexus 7? While Google’s announcement still fails to differentiate between the models,Android Police asserts that it’s heard from Google that the 2012 Nexus 7 will very much be getting an Android Lollipop update of its own.
This is fantastic news for Nexus users who aren’t quite ready to move to new (and slightly more expensive than we’re used to) hardware. The Nexus S, for the sake of reference, was dropped from Google’s official update just two years after its release (the same age the Nexus 4 is now), never getting a formal update to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. We’re still not sure how much life beyond Android 5.0 the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 will have left in them, but this is certainly cause to be optimistic.
