The new Nexus 7 is a great little tablet, as we found out in our detailed review. But a few early buyers haven’t been going through the same experience we had with it. A few weeks ago we wrote about many users complaining about issues on their new Nexus 7 and its touch screen. There would be random ghost taps and the keyboard wouldn’t respond the way it should to taps. Luckily Google was quick to respond to this issue.
Google’s Paul Wilcox confirmed on the company’s product forums that a new update is being rolled out to users of the new Nexus 7. His response was:
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, as far as we’ve heard, is live right now, although not everyone is reporting it. It could take a few days before you tablet receives it. The firmware after the update should be JSS15Q.
