Nexus 4 receives Android 4.3 build update

Google is teasing us. Whispering in our ears: Key Lime Pie. Key Lime Pie. You want it. You want it.

Android 4.3 Update - Nexus 4

Odd, I thought, at least at first.

My Nexus 4 notified me today of a system update – always a good thing in my books.

But this was the first time (as far as I can recall) that I’ve gone from the same Android version to the same Android version. In this case, I started with 4.3 and ended with 4.3 after the phone had rebooted and installed the small update. What kind of update is that?!

Turns out it’s related to the “build” of Android, and not a change to the actual version.

If you look closely under the “About” section of the settings menu, you’ll note the updated build. My Nexus 4, running on T-Mobile, went from JWR66V to JWR66Y.

Much ado about nothing

So far as I can tell, it’s simply bug and security fixes. No. New. Features. Shoot!

If you’re on T-Mobile you’ve either already got the update notice, or should see it soon – it was announced last night.

But we know what this already really about…

Google is teasing us. Whispering in our ears: Key Lime Pie. Key Lime Pie. You want it. You want it.

Oh, there’s another thing I (we) want: Nexus 5.
