Android Build 5.1.0 [LMY47D] for the Nexus 10 rolls out worldwide via OTA and should also hit other Nexus tablets later this week.

Google already unleashed the Android 5.1 Lollipop update to smaller Nexus devices such as the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. On the other hand, its only large screen device, namely the Nexus 10, only got it this weekend. Since factory images for the Nexus smartphones were released about at the same time, the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will probably hit the entire family of Nexus tablets in a matter of days as well.

According to, Nexus 10 users worldwide are currently able to get the OTA update for their tablets. The image file is 104.4 MB large and contains Android Build 5.1.0 [LMY47D]. As it usually happens with such updates, the change log includes various bug fixes and stability improvements, as well as performance enhancements.

Speaking of improved performance, YouMobile noticed that boot speed of the Nexus 10 is much better in Android 5.1.0 than in Android 5.0.2, which is the previous update. Unfortunately, the memory leaks that have been reported by multiple users since Android 5.0 Lollipop and have not been fixed by version 5.1 will only be solved by Android 5.1.1 if everything goes as planned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
