In the month of October, Google eventually launched the 4.4 KitKat update. The KitKat update was announced first in September, few days before the iOs 7 and the iPhone 5S was launched by tech giant Apple. Google waited for two complete months before deciding to confirm all the details of the 4.4 KitKat update to all the Android users. As it was expected, the KitKat update not just features many new exciting things but it will also be made available to many more devices in the near future.
Presently, Google has announced that the KitKat update software would be rolled out for the Nexus 7, Nexus 4 and even the Nexus 10. Google decided that it will not update the Galaxy Nexus with the KitKat update. This has surely left many of the owners disappointed and thousands even signed a petition and demanded the latest update. However, it is unlikely that Google will be rethinking about its decision for the Galaxy Nexus update.
It is much evident that Google has not considered the interests of the users owning the cellular version of the Google Nexus 7, at least for now. However, the company has mentioned that the firmware updates will be available soon for the cellular version.
While users of Nexus 7 with cellular data have got a smaller share of the pie as far as timing of the update is concerned, they do benefit from understanding how the upgrade process will play out. When the updates for Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 first debuted, the updates were found loitering on Google’s servers. This enables the users at bypassing the OTA update and instead, manually installing the software.
