Lollipop arrives for LG G2 phones on Vodafone Italy

The Lollipop update for the LG G2 is expanding- starting from South Korea, it already hit US carrierVerizon and it has now arrived at Vodafone in Italy and Spain.

The update seems to be limited to Vodafone devices. It will bump the software version to V30D and can be downloaded over the air or installed from a computer. You can also manually grab the file and flash it, if you know how.
Note that only the 16GB model is getting updated in Italy and that ROM is not compatible with the 32GB model. You can flash the Vodafone Spain update for 32GB LG G2 phones instead. Or wait for the official OTA update to become available.
Follow the source link for download links to the ROM files.

BlackBerry Classic is now available to buy in India

For Indian lovers of that classic BlackBerry form factor, here's some good news. BlackBerry has finally decided to launch the Classic in the subcontinent today. Furthermore, the device is already available to buy, so you don't have to wait one moment longer if you've been craving it.
The BlackBerry Classic is up for grabs at Snapdeal and at all BlackBerry Exclusive Stores. To get the latest iteration of a candybar BlackBerry with a full physical QWERTY keyboard underneath the screen, you'll need to pay INR 31,990. That translates into approximately $517 or €444.

The Classic was made official last year as the successor to the Q10 from 2013. It comes with a 3.5-inch 720x720 touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP secondary cam, and support for Cat.4 LTE (with theoretical peak download speeds of 150Mbps).
It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 225 GPU. It has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 2,515 mAh battery. It runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1.

OnePlus One to get CM-based Android 5.0 next month

Cyanogen founder Steve Kondik revealed that OnePlus One will receive stable Android 5.0 Lollipop update next month. The ROM will be based on CyanogenMod 12 build.

The Cyanogen-based ROM will not be available to OnePlus One users in India. As you probably know by now, Micromax has partnered with Cyanogen to offer its software exclusively on its Yu sub-brand. TheYureka smartphone is the first device from the Indian manufacturer to boot a Cyanogen-based ROM.
OnePlus One users in India will receive an Android 5.0 Lollipop update developed by the Chinese manufacturer. OnePlus recently released an Android 5.0 alpha ROM for overly anxious users.
Steve Kondik also shed some light on the tussle between Micromax and OnePlus in India. As it turns out, Cyanogen got “stuck” in the fight between the two companies. The developers had short exclusivity agreements with both companies - Cyanogen licensed its ROM for free to both Micromax and OnePlus.
