All major apps on my Note 2 got updated to support 5.0. But i don't know yet for sure, if Note 2 itself will get 5.0. Some sites say no and some say yes.
Anyway Samsung always joins the party late, so just wait and watch.
For Android based phones, you may install MS Office which is free. And existing users with apps saved to their Gmail I'd can still install the app.
I have the ZR. Has some wifi BT and NFC issues and the only solution is to replace the handset. Fantastic phone at 25 K when I got it. Look well before choosing any Z series Sony for wifi / BT/NFC problems.

I have had no such issues. Fantastic phone for sure. Till date the best one I have owned, with unparalleled call quality. And now Sony says it would update the same to L as well. First quarter 2015 (Not that it matters to me much!) Wifi is pretty much functional. No issues till date.
I have a OnePlus One invite. Anyone needs it? It's a global invite and not India specific invite. So you have to use parcel forwarding service and pay customs. Anyone interested reply ASAP. Very few hours left for it to expire

Yes it is coming to Amazon but you still need the invite to buy it.
I have ordered a OnePlus One for my uncle on 19th Nov. Comgateway is shipping it to India through DHL which will be delivered by next week probably. So will let you know about the performance.
You need to beg :P The global invites are easy to find but amazon will only accept India specific invites. So if you want one invite and are ready to get it shipped from US using parcel forwarding service and not to forget the customs charges then I can find an invite for you. PM me your email id.
Hey, could you tell/direct me about the process of getting the phone delivered through Comgateway ? Two more things, 1. How much does the shipping additionally cost. 2. Do we incur any import duties when we ship through these services ?
I've spent 2 days with Lollipop now and man does it suck! The usability has gone down. Simply hate it, let me know if anyone knows how to go back to kitkat.
Edit: Using it on Nexus 4
My experience with Lollipop in the last two days has been very different.
-Battery life is around 25% more.
-Phone feels a bit faster. There seems to be better memory optimisation with running apps. There is around 1.2 GB of free RAM in the standard interface.
- Personally I like the new interface in all screens. I love the fact that you can do much more with lock screen now.
- Whichever of the 157 installed apps I have used have worked flawlessly.
My build# LRX21T.
I use Accuweather and Gravity screen but don't have any third party launcher like Aviate.
So far extremely pleased with Lollipop experience on Nexus 4.
Try Cam on Road(CoR in playstore) app which makes your android as a car dvr.
It has all the good features like clip protection in case of a crash, GPS and speed data overlay, customization of video loop size, 2GB of cloud storage free, if you choose to record in 480p. Not very sure of the AR navigation feature as I am yet to try it. It also records in background so you can use other navigation apps while recording. It does consume a bit of energy so a phone charger/external battery is necessary.
So finally the Oneplus One shipment reached me. The customs guys did open it up to check the contents but DHL sealed it back.
The total cost breakup is:
Phone cost : 23373
Comgateway shipping : 1854
Custom duty : 2843
Not bad isn't it?
