New Nexus 7 getting two minor updates

Nexus 7

Users of the new Nexus 7 will apparently receive two new updates as soon as the tablet is turned on. These aren’t major updates by any means, so don’t expect to see a change in the Android version. The build numbers however will be changed, which means this is mostly a bug fix and performance enhancement update which is standard for a newly launched device. Now you know what to expect if you’re waiting to get your hands on the new tablet.

The first update will apparently roll out right after the first boot, while the second update will download silently in the background. When the download is finished, the user will be notified with a pop-up in the notifications tray.  The first update will change the build number to JWR66N and the second update will change it to JSS15J.

The Nexus 7 has been all over the news since Wednesday’s announcement. Earlier today we stumbled across a report alleging manufacturing defects in the tablet. So overall it has been a mixed weekend for Google.
