We told you yesterday that the Moto X (1st gen) on AT&T was primed for a soak test of Lollipop at some point this week, with invites arriving in the inboxes of our readers.

While that would be fine and all, we have to point out that it appears they updated the wrong page. The Moto X (2nd gen) is actually the phone getting the update. Why would we say that? Well, because the “Verifying the Update” section on the support page details a phone under codename “victara,” which is the 2nd generation Moto X. The 1st generation Moto X actually carries the codename “ghost.”  (more…)
