Google have approved the latest Gemini OS build - so fingers crossed will be available shortly. Wonder what improvements have been made this time?

I just checked my X25 4G Gemini in Sweden and... nothing, so far. I intend to keep checking daily, not because I really need 8.1 as such for what I do on the Gemini, but rather because its September 2018 patch level doesn't feel serious two days from May 2019.

As for Android 9 on the Gemini, well, the Cosmo is supposed to run 9.0 at release, so obviously Planet needs to make it run there. While the Cosmo has somewhat different hardware, it still has quite a lot in common with the Gemini, so, in the long run, I suspect it would be easier for Planet to maintain a few flavors of the same version of Android for the different models of Gemini and Cosmo, than keep patching 8.1 for the Gemini and 9.0 for the Cosmo.

That, of course, doesn't have to mean that 9.0 for the Gemini will happen, just that, from my point of view, since Planet Computers claims they will keep caring for the Gemini for the foreseeable future, it would seem like a reasonable thing to do, once the Cosmo has shipped, whenever that might be.

Nothing here as well, and no reports from others yet (just checked on IRC/Telegram/Facebook/Indiegogo), though there's a message from Mike on FB saying that it began rolling out to some devices yesterday, and will expand to all devices over the coming days. Keep in mind that this is the OTA release for unrooted, Android-only Wifi+LTE models, the files for the manual installation will be released in a couple of weeks.
