Android 4.1.2 update adds landscape mode, rolling out to Nexus 7

Nexus 7 is an interesting Android tablet: I tend to use it much more frequently than 10″ Samsung Galaxy Tab, because Nexus 7 is so much more comfortable to hold.

One thing that has been bugging me is the absence of the landscape mode support in native launcher. It wasn’t bad enough to make me switch the launcher, but this was a nagging issue.

Great news: the latest Android 4.1.2 update solves this issue and adds landscape support to the native launcher. The update will be delivered over the air, but if you don’t want to wait for the OTA update and prefer to install it manually, here are the instructions.
