Google is in the process of rolling out Android 4.2.1 to at least Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices (with Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus hardware likely to follow) as an over-the-air update, Android Central reports. The minor update brings a fix for an embarrassing omission on Google’s part: The month of December.
...due to an increased delay in shipping. Nice one, Google :thumbsup:
The team behind Googles first independently engineered and manufactured hardware is delaying the public product launch to add new functionality to the device. But there is a silver lining for those whove already committed to a life with Nexus Q.
Over the course of the past day, we have seen Google start to rollout an Android update, first to Nexus 10 devices, then to Nexus 4 devices, and most recently to Nexus 7 devices. The OTA update to version 4.2.1 is probably still in the process of propagating to all device owners.
These numbers shouldn’t really surprise anyone, but a ton of people bought smart devices in 2012, according to IDC. They bought over 1 billion of those devices, actually. That includes, desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. The leaders there were (obviously) Samsung and Apple, with Apple accounting for 20.3% and Samsung accounting for 21.2%.
Microsoft is targeting the growing mobile workforce with a 15 percent hike in license fees directed primarily at companies that have employees who use smartphones and other mobile devices in their work.
According to Mary Jo Foley, the new licensing agreement goes into effect December 1 for customers with the user option for its “client access licenses” (CAL).
It just might be the last year of the Nexus, and if it is, it could go out with a bang. We already know about the Nexus X, but is it going to be a 5.2-inch model or a 5.9-inch model?
It’s expected that the Nexus X will in fact be 5.9-inches, but we also know that Motorola is testing two Moto S devices, a 5.2-incher and a 5.9-incher.
According to a new report from The Next Web today, Google is readying a number of new devices for announcement at the event it recently announced for October 29, including new Nexus tablet hardware and Android 4.2 features.
Another dispatch from the post-PC era: Forrester’s latest report on mobile adoption in the enterprise found that 66% of employees now use two or more devices every day, including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. A smaller, but notable 12% percent said they now use tablets at work.
