Absence of landscape mode is on the main things we disliked about the Nexus 7 when we reviewed it but Google is now finally fixing it. Yesterday, Google started rolling out an update to Android OS for Nexus 7. The Jelly Bean 4.1.2 is only an incremental update from the 4.1.1 but its promises some bug fixes, performance improvements and most important of all, it brings landscape mode to Nexus 7. All users havent got this update yet but a reader at EE Times has got it and he sent a screen shot of home screen in landscape mode.
