Google rolled out the 4.4.4 update to devices earlier this year, with the 2013 Nexus 7 seeing the OTA in mid June. Here we are over three months later and Google has finally posted the full factory images and binaries for the LTE version of the N7. It's about time, guys.

Newegg is offering up a pretty compelling deal on the Nexus 7 right now. Those interested in picking up a refurbished 16GB model can do so for about $103 (before tax) using VISA Checkout, after a $50 rebate.

This deal is actually a combination of promotions from Newegg - the site is offering 10% off (up to $20) when users select VISA Checkout and use promo code VCO, and Newegg's listing for the refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 offers a $50 rebate (via prepaid card).

There is a really annoying bug in Android that makes your Home and Recents buttons disappear and prevents the notification shade from working. It only happens after flashing an OS update without wiping, but since I've now run into this issue at least 3 times after updating my Nexus devices, and it's a pain to find any info on how to fix it online, it's time for a quick post.

Specifically, I just flashed the updated LPV81C L preview build on top of LPV79 (again, I did it without wiping data - just open the flash-all script and remove "-w" to do so) and observed the Nexus 5 boot into this:

If the buttons disappear for you for the first time, you will be stumped.

It looks like Google is serious about getting the "L" preview out to developers in all of its forms, even as code. That's right, some of the source code is already live on AOSP!Screen Shot 2014-07-01 at 4.15.59 PM

It looks like all of the recent Nexus devices are covered - everything from the 2012 Nexus 7 up through to the Nexus 5. Of course, just because branches have been published for these devices, it is not absolute confirmation that this entire list of devices will receive an official L release.

While the majority of Nexus and GPE devices have received their Android 4.4.3 OTAs relatively quickly, the rollout for certain other devices has certainly been... unusual. We still haven't heard anything about the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE, the LG G Pad 8.3 GPE, or the Moto G GPE, and until today, the OTA for the 2012 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi (I've been waiting for it to post both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+3G links together).

It's really been raining Nexus 7 deals lately. This time the 16GB N7 is available as a refurbished unit from eBay Daily Deals for a mere $139.99. That's $90 off the Google Play price.

The Nexus 7 is coming up on a year old at this point, but it's still a capable tablet with a great screen. If you don't mind using last year's hardware, the Nexus 7 can be had at a nice discount on eBay today. You get your choice of the 16GB, 32GB, or 32GB LTE variant for up to $70 off.

Google's 25% off cases sale has returned, and thankfully so. The products the company offers in the Play Store aren't cheap. Yet while there are more affordable options to be found elsewhere, there's nothing quite like a first-party case to provide a perfect fit and that proud Nexus branding. Now you can again snag up one for the Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 at 75% of the original price.

The holiday season saw a ton of tablets dip below the coveted $100 mark, but there weren't many of them that were actually worth even that low price. But today you can pick up the 32GB version of the original Tegra-powered Nexus 7 from Newegg for a cool c-note... assuming you're OK with both a refurbished model and a rebate in the form of a $50 prepaid Visa card.

That's still a pretty good deal if you're willing to jump through the hoops.

It took a few months longer than everyone was hoping, but Verizon is finally supporting the 2013 Nexus 7. Big Red is even selling the device, if you don't want to get it from Google Play for some reason. However, the pricing isn't awesome. Verizon wants $249.99 for the Nexus 7 with a 2-year contract.

The off-contract price of the LTE Nexus 7 is $349.99, which is the same as the Google price.
