Recently there’s been reports of a couple of bugs in the newly released 2013 model of the Nexus 7. The first being a GPS bug that caused some inconsistent results and dropouts of GPS tracking and now there’s reports surfacing of the latest in the Nexus fleet having multitouch issuses. The issue has been captured on video and while it’s going to be a very annoying bug, it’s not something of critical reliance and seems to right itself after a couple of seconds.
Early indications are that this is a software bug and not a hardware issue which is great news as it means a pushed OTA update can fix the issue once Google isolate it and resolve the problem. There are reports that the issue is only present after the 2nd OTA release(JSS15J) for the Nexus 7 is downloaded and applied.
Just like the Nexus 7 GPS bug is being investigated, the Multi-touch bug has been acknowledged in the Google Product Forums and we hope that this will be fixed by the time the Nexus 7 rolls out on-sale here in Australia.
