Android Lollipop begins rolling out to Moto E and Maxx in Brazil and Mexico

Motorola announced today that it has started rolling out the latest version of Android to Moto E and Moto Maxx devices Brazil and Mexico. Only a few users will see the update at first as Google tests the software on these handsets, with additional users gaining access in the coming weeks.

When you hear the word Droid, you probably think of two things: Star Wars and Android. While both items are a correct association, the latter comes with a bit of a twist. Armed with a licensing agreement with Lucasfilm, Verizon launched the Motorola Droid in the fall of 2009.
