By Chris Mills on at

The generously sized Nexus 6 might be the headline phone for the debut of Google's Android 5.0 operating system, but if you're the owner of Motorola's cheap-and-cheerful Moto G – and, importantly, it's unlocked – you might be able to start sucking on that sweet Lollipop right now.

According to US site Ars Technica, unlocked second-generation Moto Gs can start downloading the 386MB update right now (take notes Apple!), with support for other Nexus devices expected in the coming days. Let us know how you get on.
