Google is rolling out an Android 4.3 update that reportedly does away with one of the few issues that have plagued the new Nexus 7 since its launch – the bug related to a malfunctioning multitouch, according to a new report.
The new Nexus 7 got launched in a blaze of glory and euphoria last month in Google’s Android event on July 24th.
However, as time went by and users started to actually use the device, a strange number of issues started to crop up in the new slate, a situation that was eerily similar to the performance issues experienced by the first generation Nexus 7 last year.
I talked about this last week, when I asked if the positive reviews of the new Nexus 7 were simply taking gullible users for a ride.
A Google employee with the username paulw had this to say in Google’s product forums:
“As a couple of you have mentioned, there’s a new system update that’s started rolling out for your Nexus 7s. This update does address the touchscreen issues discussed in this thread. If you’re one of the people experiencing touchscreen issues, please let us know how it’s going after you’ve received and installed the update.”
The update clearly hasn’t reached anyone yet though, so do wait for a couple of days to know whether this upcoming update does the trick and resolves the Nexus tablet’s various issues.
