Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 to get Android L

Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 to get Android LTeam Mountain View talked up Android L at Google I/O 2014 last week, but one thing missing from the three-hour keynote (zzz) was a list of fully supported Nexus devices.

The Google Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) were definitely A-OK, but now it seems that the 2012 range is good for Android L, too.

What happened is, see, Google released the Android L source code for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) last week, leaving many to scream: “What about the older chaps?! WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE OLDER CHAPS?!”

But any fears of being left behind after 24 months (a long time in the mobile world, to be fair) have been laid to rest this week, with the rollout of further source code type goodness.

Specifically, that means the LG-built Google Nexus 4, Asus-built Nexus 7 (2012) and Samsung-built Nexus 10, which launched together in October 2012, will all be officially updated to Android L when it arrives later this year. Huzzah!

As for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, well, it got stuck back on Jelly Bean Android 4.3, so don’t hold your breath or you’ll likely die a frankly horrific death. Maybe you can grab some unofficial Android L if the nerds can be bothered hooking you up.
