Nexus 4 Android 4.4 KitKat Arrived - When Will It Be Ready For Nexus 7?

Only for the Nexus 4!

Earlier this month, Google released the Android 4.4 KitKat update. First, it was shipped on the Nexus 5, Google's new Nexus smartphone released a few weeks ago. Then Google announced that Android 4.4 KitKat would be rolling out to several other devices, the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 7 included.

After that, many of users are waiting and wondering about their Over-the-Air upgrade. The update to the Nexus 4 finally arrived yesterday, but until now, still no update news to Nexus 7 users. Apparently, it has annoyed its users.

Why not the Nexus 7?

Unlike iOS updating, Android is used more widely on various brands and models of smartphones and tablets. It's not so easy to roll it out and hits everyone at the same time, but two weeks is long enough. At least, some owners of the Nexus 7 have lost their temper over it, and begin complaining and expressing their frustration on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter.

Why was the Nexus 7 not included this time? It's likely because Google discovered a bug inside the original KitKat build. Previous Nexus Android updates have been extremely buggy. Google may be still working hard to make sure that this update is not buggy. If this is real, it's still worth the wait.

In any case, the Android 4.4 KitKat will come to every owner of the Nexus 7 ahead of the updates for Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and more.

When for the Nexus 7?

Google announced the Android 4.4 KitKat update for Nexus devices on its website. What we can learn from it is the KitKat will come to Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 first, except the Nexus 5. It doesn't mention the specific date of the update. But if the rumor is correct, hope that we can get it this week.
