    Google announced on Monday that it has started rolling out Android 5.1, but there's no sign of an update yet for the Nexus 9.

    Not that tablet users should waiting with bated breath, as virtually all the improvements are for smartphones, like support for multiple SIM cards and high definition (HD) voice.

    Still, Device Protection is a feature many users can appreciate, whether they are using a tablet or a phone. As Google says:

    With Device Protection, your lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account - even if someone resets your device to factory settings. This feature will be available on most Android phones and tablets shipped with Android 5.1 in addition to Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.

    Google recently introduced Android 5.0.2 for the Nexus 9, which users of this device found somewhat insulting, considering other devices have been getting upgrades to Android 5.1 for over two months.

    However, Google has now announced that Android 5.1.1 has started rolling out to the Nexus 9. This has not yet arrived for the unit TabletPCReview uses for testing, however.
