    I'm thinking Verizon might have something to do with it...

    Blame Verizon ! They hate Google and the openness of Android. 😕

    I was wondering what happened..........I thought all Nexus devices would be updated within a week of 4.4.3's release? N5 has been updated for almost 10 days or more!

    More than likely it's Verizon insisting on getting their dirty paws on it before it's released. Google should kick Verizon to the curb if they are going to treat the openness of GSM (LTE is a derivative of GSM, and the Nexus 7 only supports Verizon LTE) like it is their closed proprietary CDMA garbage.

    Verizon has nothing to go with this update, blame Google. We have one Verizon and two T-mobile models here, still no update as of right now 'June 14 2014 ' I live 20miles away from Google main office in Mountain view.

    There is no such thing as a Verizon model or T-Mobile model. They are all the same. If you purchase one from T-Mobile, it is the exact same thing as if you purchased it from Google Play or Verizon.

    If Verizon insists on getting involved with the software, it effects ALL Nexus 7 LTE tablets, as the software is the same.

    Exactly my thinking.

    I'd love for a reporter to look into this.

    Apple and Nexus product lines are not Verizon branded products. Not their business to push google or apple to give you latest os update. You can drop Verizon service today and install At&T sim tomorrow then blame At&T .

    You still don't get it. I don't use Verizon. I use T-Mobile. But since Google designed the Nexus 7 to be compatible with Verizon, and advertised it that way, Verizon insists on being involved with the software and "approving" it even though it is a GSM device using open standards.

    Yes I can put my AT&T SIM card in it. That has no bearing on anything. AT&T doesn't muck up and get in the way of open standards. Neither does T-Mobile. How is this so difficult to understand?

    So how come apple people always getting their iOS iPhones & iPads updates on all devices (WiFI / LTE) and service providers simultaneously? Do you think Verizon have to approve all iOS updates too?

    Yes.

    Apple actually does some or most of the testing for Verizon too. Remember all the labs revealed during antennagate?

    So, you're saying that even though I bought my 7 from Best Buy unlocked (not associated with any provider), if I remove my V SIM and let it run WiFi only that Verizon has something to do with the release? Just asking.

    Yes. The software is the same regardless of what SIM you have in it or if you have one at all. In my opinion, that's how it should be, minus the Verizon getting involved part. GSM/LTE is an open standard, and shouldn't require any carrier input.

    So WHY Verizon involvement always leads to Android update delays but never iOS? I think you get what you pay for…

    Yes, since the LTE radios are in there, the OS build is different then the WiFi version.

    What's the chances we skip 4.4.3 and go straight to 4.4.4?

    Probably 100%, IF we even get an update. Google is not communicating with the public as to what is going on. As much as I like Google, they suck at customer service.

    Well that didn't go as expected. Of course they may still skip the 4.4.3 OTA.

    Well now I'm rather annoyed, I wanted to do the L preview on my Nexus 7 but the image they put out is the WiFi model only. Feels like the LTE model isn't part of the Nexus program.

    Haven't seen the recent OTAs yet either.

    4.4.3 must have been finally approved by the powers-to-be (Verizon and/or other carriers).

    I got the notice it was available last evening - downloaded and installed.
