Google to release Android 5.1 March 11 And Check Your mobile in the list ?

Android 5.1 Lollipop is almost here. Google is preparing to launch Android 5.1 next week (most likely Wednesday March 11). Google has started updating the Nexus download page and Drivers page as Artem Russakovskii points out in a Google plus post .
Google has a history of making minor changes (non can be seen on the page yet) instead, they make the changes and wait till the release date to apply them so they become visible to the rest of the world, it has done the same to the Drivers page. Google isn’t the only one as T-Mobile has also updated its Software Version page (Last modified on March 6)
A Google project member has also made reference to “API 22″ claiming it is “on its way to release”, Android 5.1 Lollipop will have API 22.
