If you are a Google Nexus 7 owner like me, you were excited to find out that Android 4.2 is now officially available as an OTA (Over The Air) update direct from Google.

The last update, 4.1.2, did not show up on my device until two days later. if you didn’t know, geeks can be a bit impatient.

Yes, there are other, more “geeky” ways to manually update your Nexus 7, but I like easy.
The new features in Android 4.2 are detailed here.
