Some Nexus tablet owners can expect to get their first taste of Android KitKat soon.
Starting today, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) and Nexus 10 will be getting a tasty update to Android 4.4, KitKat— Android (@Android) November 13, 2013
However, not all Nexus owners can expect the upgrade right away; Google said the current rollout is for Wi-Fi-only tablets, meaning that Nexus slates with mobile data will have to wait, as will owners of the Nexus 4.
Stay tuned, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 versions with mobile data will be getting the update soon! http://t.co/TTRzORl4js— Android (@Android) November 13, 2013
The latest version of the mobile operating system, which Google rolled out last week with the debut of the Nexus 5 smartphone, doesn't pack a ton of transformative design and feature changes like the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Instead, KitKat's main purpose is to usher in a strategy toward minimizing fragmentation, a problem that has cropped up because of the wide variety of Android devices on the market running different versions of the operating system.
