The tablets Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 are the first served for the update to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Google has unveiled Android 4.4 KitKat along with the presentation of Nexus 5 at the end of October. This smartphone was so far the only device to receive – by default – the latest version dated Android operating system.
Starting today, the deployment of KitKat officially begins for Nexus 7 (version 2012 and 2013) and Nexus 10. Both tablets will be the first to be served by Google. The Mountain View company said that for the Nexus 4 smartphone, the update is coming soon.
Recall that Google had said other devices that will initially be affected by KitKat are the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One version of Google Play.
A special feature of KitKat is a performance optimization in order to adapt to the devices whose specifications do not fall into the top of today's range and thus a way to reduce the fragmentation of Android. It is a pity that the Galaxy Nexus does not benefit. A prior, the holders of a Nexus 7 should also expect improved performance.
If Google kicks off deployment for Nexus Nexus 7 and 10 (Wi-Fi), the arrival is not necessarily immediate.
