New Nexus 7 hand wm

Much has been made about the new Nexus 7’s issues since launch, but its biggest has been the erratic touch screen that’s been plaguing the experience for many people. After tons of reports and complaints have rolled in, Google quickly looked to address the issue, and it appears that they have finally delivered a solution.

Google has confirmed that a new update — version JSS15Q  — is rolling out to the masses. This update directly addresses those touch screen issues (which mainly affected those using multi-touch).

The problem should be cleared up for pretty much everyone, though you never know with these sorts of things. Of course, the update is rolling out at a staggered pace so if you don’t see it right away then be sure to give it a few days. We’ll be on the lookout for post-update reports to see how things are working out for everyone. If any of you have received the update, feel free to let us know how it’s treating you in the comments section below.

[Google via XDA, thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
