A software update is rolling out to the new Nexus 7 that should fix the multitouch problems, according to new reports.
Word began to trickle out in the days following the Nexus 7 release that Google was investigating issues relating to the tablet's display.
Paul Wilcox, Google community manager for Android, posted the following response in an ongoing thread at Google's product forum: "As a couple of you have mentioned, there's a new system update that's started rolling out for your Nexus 7s. This update does address the touch-screen issues discussed in this thread."
Still listed as Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the JSS15Q software update should take care of the touch-y situation. Considering the release candidate does not change, we might not expect any other alterations outside of the Nexus 7's display troubles.
