As promised when the firmware was first unveiled in October, Google has begun delivering the Android 4.4 KitKat update to its Nexus tablets. Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 owners can now download the latest version of Android right now.
Google confirmed on its Google+ page that it has begun pushing out KitKat to the 10-inch Nexus 10 built with Samsung and both models of its Wi-Fi Nexus 7 tablets built with Asus. Device owners can check for the update by going to Settings > About tablet > System update and following the instructions to install. The update is rolling out in stages so everyone may not have immediate access, but it should arrive soon. Be sure to charge a Nexus tablet to have at least 75 percent of battery power before proceeding with the install.
As for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 tablets with cellular service, users will have to wait a little bit longer. Google says those updates are coming ?soon? for an undisclosed time. There are likely issues related to the 3G and LTE radios that have to be tested before Google and carriers feel confident enough to push out updates.source: Google
