INTERNET GIANT Google has started rolling out a fix for its new Nexus 7 tablet that fixes problems with the device's display.
Google's new Nexus 7 has gotten off to a shaky start in the US, with buyers of the tablet having been quick to point out that its display doesn't work quite as well as it should.
The problem was discovered last week, with users flocking to Google's Product Forums to moan about the issue, which sees the new Nexus 7 tablet sporadically registering double presses on the keyboard when the display is only touched once.
Google responded about the issue on Wednesday, and said that it has started rolling out a fix for the problem plaguing early adopters of the new Nexus 7
Google's Paul Wilcox confirmed the news on the Google Product Forums. He said, "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 touchscreen issues discussed in this thread. If you're one of the people experiencing touchscreen issues, please let us know how it's going after you've received and installed the update."
While this is good news for new Nexus 7 owners, Google has yet to issue a fix for the GPS issues that are also plaguing its Android 4.3 Jelly Bean tablet.
According to users of the tablet, as well as having a dodgy display, the new Nexus 7 struggles to hold onto a GPS signal for longer than half an hour.
