Jolla Sailfish

The Jolla Sailfish OS from the makers of MeeGo has long been expected to make its way to users of the LG Nexus 4. The company has now rolled out an early adopter version of this OS meant for users of the 2012 Nexus smartphone. This will basically give users a very early preview of the new OS and will help better understand its functioning.

Google has taken to its official Twitter account to announced that its second-generation wireless charger for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) is now available from the Play Store in Australia, India, Japan and Korea.


Earlier this week, Google released the Android 4.4.2 OTA update for all the Nexus devices it currently supports. Unlike the Android 4.4.1 update that was rolled out last week, the latest update to KitKat only fixed a few under-the-hood bugs and patched a major security loophole.

The roll-out of the Android 4.4.2 OTA update has been pretty quick from Google’s side and chances are you must have already received the OTA update notification on your device. However, if you are rooted, the OTA update will fail to install on your Nexus device.

Google has made some revisions to the design of its LG-made Nexus 5 handset, with subtle differences between those bought shortly after its launch and those manufactured more recently. The revisions address a number of issues that users had discovered with the original design, including loose buttons a protruding SIM trays.


The latest build (KOT49H) of Google’s recently updated operating system, 4.4.2 KitKat, is now officially available to download for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. However, this update doesn’t use Android’s standard over-the-air (OTA) upgrade process. Instead, you will have to download the 4.4.2 factory images and install them on your device via the search engine giants Developer Platform.


Google’s Nexus-branded wireless charger is now available to purchase from Google Play in the United Kingdom. The £35 device, which is compatible with the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7, is currently shipping in 1-2 business days.


Google has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 update for all the Nexus devices, fixing the flash SMS bug that was reported last week. The update comes less than a week after the company started rolling out the Android 4.4.1 update that greatly improved the Nexus 5 camera performance.
