A couple of days ago, Amazon and NewEgg slashed the price of the 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 to just $239. What made this odd is that the 16GB variant, which is just nine dollars less, didn't receive any sort of price cut. This of course made the buying choice super easy – the 32GB version was the only way to go. If $239 is still a bit too much to be easily justified, however, the 16 gigger is now only $199.

The Android 4.4 update, aka KitKat, still has yet to roll out to a large number of Nexus device owners out there. And, in desperation, some users are resorting to methods they probably don't fully understand in order to get the OTA, one of which is clearing the Google Service Framework data. This method isn't new, but it's one whose side effects are not generally considered by those who use it, at least according to Google engineer Dan Morrill.

If you've recently updated your Nexus device from Jelly Bean to KitKat, there's a chance you're already being notified of an OTA update to KRT16S. If you're wondering what's changed, the collected list of source commits has been posted by Al Sutton. Most of the tweaks are pretty minor, including an improvement to the backup service, a few updated APNs for assorted carriers, and code to handle rare issues with the 3G Nexus 7 (2012) radio.

The first notable update for KitKat has just been released across most of the major AOSP and Nexus channels. According to Google software engineer Conley Owens, the KRT16S build includes bugfixes for the original Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi and mobile versions), Nexus 4, and Nexus 10. The binaries have already been added to the Nexus repository.

Looking for a 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 on the cheap (in the US)? Amazon and Newegg to the rescue! While this isn't the lowest price we've ever seen, it is pretty close to it, and more importantly, it's not through eBay or a less than well-known 3rd party retailer - these are the big-box guys.

Getting things kicked off, the 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 is one of today's Newegg featured daily deals, coming it at an impressive $239.00 sans tax and shipping, beating the Play Store price by a rather substantial $30, or 11%.

While the Nexus 5 launched nearly three weeks ago in some parts of the world, as we all know, the Google Play Store doesn't exactly ship to every corner of the globe. Today, we're getting a little closer to that goal, though, as India and Hong Kong can now purchase the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) direct from Google, as confirmed by the Nexus page on Google+.

Starting with Hong Kong (Play Store pictured above), pricing for the Nexus 5 is HK$3,198 for the 16GB version, and HK$3,588 for the 32GB variant.

Google made a big deal out of the Qi-compatible wireless charger last year, but it took months to finally arrive. This year Google's updated Nexus Wireless Charger is making its entrance in a much more timely manner. You can order it right now and it'll ship on or around November 22nd.

The Nexus charger is compatible with all recent devices with Qi technology – the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and 2013 Nexus 7.

Update: The US update just hit our unit in the wee hours of the morning, right on time. It's 273.17MB and takes about 10 minutes to install if you've got the mobile dock (less if you don't). You should be able to get the update by hitting up the system OTA menu. Remember, the full images for the Taiwanese and worldwide SKUs were posted a few days ago, so you can go that route if you want.
