The latest version of Google's Jelly Bean Android OS is now being pushed out to Nexus devices.

Google has begun rolling out the latest version of its Android mobile operating system, version 4.2.2, to its range of Nexus smartphone and tablet devices.

The latest update is currently being pushed to the Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus smartphones, and the company's Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Google has also published the factory images of the 4.2.2 software for users to download.

Version 4.2.2 of the Jelly Bean platform is a minor update. Among the new features introduced include progress percentage and time indicators when downloading applications from the Google Play Store, the ability to long press on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi icons in the quick settings menu to use them as toggles, and new sounds for wireless charging and low battery notifications.

There is also longer vibrations for notifications and a new Gallery app animation. In addition, the latest Android update claims to address some minor bugs and performance issues.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
