Well, that escalated quickly. Google is rolling out OTA updates for Nexus devices to Android 4.4.2, and we have download links for you.
The only ones we have yet to see are downloads for the Nexus 7 2012, both WiFi and HSPA+ models. Once they become available, we will add them to the list.
Update: We have the other download links, so have at ‘em! (more…)
We received a report a moment ago from a reader who was notified to update his Nexus 7 (2012) to Android 4.4.2 (build KOT49H). We’re still awaiting more info from him, but a user on reddit and another on XDA also are confirming the arrival of yet another update.
We should point out that Sprint support is showing that the Nexus 5 is due an update to build KRT49H (pretty sure it’s KOT49H) today, which is a build we have yet to see. The Nexus 5 just received its Android 4.4.1 update last week as build KOT49E. (more…)
Yesterday, OTA update download links were flying out for Nexus devices to update to Android 4.1.1 (build KOT49E). After only a little wait, the download is now also available for the Nexus 7 WiFi (2013) model, so go get yourself the newly updated Kit Kat. (more…)
Don’t worry, Nexus 7 owners – you are getting the Android 4.4.1 love today as well. This is first build of the newly-released Kit Kat OS available for an Android tablet, and only installable for owners of the Nexus 7 LTE 2013 model. If you have any other model, do not attempt to sideload this file. We have the direct Google download link for you below to bring you to build KOT49E. (more…)
While you attempt to wait patiently for Motorola to get their sh*t together for today’s Moto X Cyber Monday deal, think about adding to your tech collection with this eBay deal on the 2013 Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB. As long as supplies last, you can grab the 16GB model for $169 or the 32GB model for $229. That would be a $60 or $40 discount, respectively. Oh, you can get free shipping as well with an estimated arrival time of “on or before December 6″ for the 16GB version.
The 16GB Nexus 7 units are manufacturer refurbished; 32GB units are brand new.

In a pre-Black Friday move, Staples has gone ahead and tossed out a coupon for $50 off of tablets priced $149.99 or more. This is a 1-day only deal here (it ends today), folks, so you may want to take advantage immediately. Tablets like the Nexus 7 (2013) are included, meaning the 16GB version at $229 can be had for $179. Not sure you’ll find a better deal than that. (more…)
Who doesn’t love a good late night deal? If you answered with an enthusiastic, “I DO!” and also are in need of an insanely cheap tablet that’s still quite capable, think about the latest deal through Groupon. For the next 3 days (or until they run out of inventory), you can pick up the 2012 Nexus 7 (yes, last year’s model) with either 16GB or 32GB of storage. The 16GB variant runs $119, while the 32GB model jumps up to $149.
I know that it might be painful to stomach a 2012 model, but keep in mind that these aren’t even refurbished units like we tend to see from online deal sites. According to the listing, these are brand new, never been touched, Nexus 7 tablets. (more…)
If you were thinking of getting someone in your life a Nexus device, Google just went and made the decision a little bit easier for you. Google Play just announced that starting today, purchasing a Nexus 7 also nets you a $25 gift card to the Play Store to spend on awesome things. (more…)
