The latest version of Google's Jelly Bean Android OS is now being pushed out to Nexus devices.

Google has begun rolling out the latest version of its Android mobile operating system, version 4.2.2, to its range of Nexus smartphone and tablet devices.

The latest update is currently being pushed to the Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus smartphones, and the company's Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Google has also published the factory images of the 4.2.2 software for users to download.

Version 4.2.2 of the Jelly Bean platform is a minor update. Among the new features introduced include progress percentage and time indicators when downloading applications from the Google Play Store, the ability to long press on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi icons in the quick settings menu to use them as toggles, and new sounds for wireless charging and low battery notifications.

There is also longer vibrations for notifications and a new Gallery app animation. In addition, the latest Android update claims to address some minor bugs and performance issues.

Don't really notice anything different on the Nexus 7.



I use an iphone to 'hotspot' internet access to my Nexus 7, since the update i cant access the internet on my Nexus. It seems to be a DNS problem

Great improvement



It's a little bit faster and smoother. I found that it became more responsive too.



Haven't noticed anything different on the Nexus 7.



It feels as if the update brought some improvements to games. My Batman game (Dont remember the name of it) wich has some pretty demanding graphics runs smoother. I would say about 20% more FPS. I also wanna note that i always close everything down and use advanced killer before i play something demanding. So it is not because my tab just got a restart.

// Nexus 7 32GB



installed on Nexus 9250, feels slightly smother, no problems,



I don't know if I am imagining this but since the update I cannot successfully use the swype feature in chrome address bar. It fails to auto space. The text is entered as it were a web address. Same issue when using any browser..
Working fine while I am typing this comment but definitely not in the Chrome address bar.



What I mean by swype feature is the swipe feature in android keyboard.

Some of the major Bluetooth bugs are fixed but its still broken with my car Bluetooth for phone calls. These worked flawlessly under android 4.1.

Same as Seedar, still does not work in my car. Very disapointing



Also noticing that the auto space feature is no longer working in Chrome search bar on my Nexus 7.



Still having problem with my bluetooth earpiece. Not able to dial via voice, for the rest is ok,
It was time Google addressed this issue which has been reported for months.
My dumbphone could do that over six years ago...
WHy is it that there is no answer from Google? Love my Galaxy Nexus and Android but this is doing a bad service to themselves. At least give the face and say that cannot oy will not fix... Not pretend that it did not exit.
Google has selfdriving cars and cannot fix a bluetooth to dia via voice? I don't buy that, just do what you have to do.



My Droid Razr just updated to 4.1.2 and I think it's ok...but I hate it when I'm posting to a discussion board and it types all title case like this: Hello My Name Is Blah. How Are you Today?



I updated my Samsung galaxy s2 but my battery is getting drained ????



I Hate This Update. It Sucks To No End. Wish I Could Go Back To The Old one.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
