Android 4.4 KitKat now available on the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets

The latest iteration of Android has to date only been available on the new Nexus 5 but, as of November 13, can now be downloaded on the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi versions and Nexus 10 tablet.

The bad news is that Nexus 4 owners and those with a cellular Nexus 7 tablet will have to wait a little longer, with the update not currently available for both devices.

Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat on the new Nexus 5 smartphone at the end of last month, and recent reports claim that the operating system update – which takes its name from the popular candy bar maker – could soon feature on the second-generation Nexus 10.

Some new Nexus 7 users report problems with the touchscreen

Some users have reported that the GPS sometimes works for a few minutes and then goes back into "Searching Mode."  

A more significant problem has been reported on Google’s online product support forum related to the tablet's touchscreen. Here's what one user wrote about the issue:

At first the keyboard seemed okay, though it would occasionally register double presses on the keyboard.  Now it has gotten progressively worse and the keyboard getting very erratic.  It is frequently registering double taps, and often ghost taps in areas not anywhere near where I’m touching on the keyboard.  It’s [...]

Google’s Nexus 7 tablet: Flying off the shelves this holiday season?

Citing sources in Taiwan’s supply chain, Digitimes reports that Google will ship 3.5 million new Nexus 7 tablets in the remaining four months of 2013, a healthy number considering total Nexus 7 shipments have apparently only reached six million since the original model launched last July.

However, it may well be that the Nexus 7’s progress will be checked by the Chinese market and Asus, which co-built both Nexus 7 tablets.

Google quit the Chinese market back in 2010 after failing to comply with the country’s Internet policies, and it looks unlikely that the search giant will be able to convince the Chinese government to allow the device to enter the [...]

iPad mini versus the new Nexus 7 in crash test – the results are in

The new Nexus 7 won all three tests performed by SquareTrade.

In the first one, a five foot corner drop onto what appeared to be a concrete floor, the original Nexus 7 and the iPad mini both ended up with cracked screens while the new Nexus 7 sustained only some minor scratches on the corner where it first impacted the floor.

SquareTrade, which showed the tests in a YouTube video, also compared who likely the three tablets to slide when pushed across a table. The iPad mini went several feet to slide completely off the table and crash to the ground. “Could be risky if you don’t have carpet," said the SquareTrade tester in the video.
