If you're rocking a Nexus 4 smartphone, or Nexus 7 tablet (in either the 2012 or 2013 edition) then you'll be happy to know that Google is pushing out Android 4.4 KitKat factory images.




This is great, because some of the Nexus 7 versions aren't receiving their over-the-air (OTA) updates, but now any Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 owner can download it and apply them. I've been using Android 4.4 KitKat on my Nexus 5 for the last few days, and I'm coming to really enjoy the changes that Google has pushed onto the platform.
