Do you use Google Calendar on Android a whole lot? If you have answered in the affirmative and are one of the more avid users of Google Calendar on Android, then chances are you would have already joined in on the chorus of users in the same position as you to customize event and calendar colors straight from your device. Well, the good people over at Google have definitely heard this clarion cry of yours, where today’s update enables you to do just that.
From now on, as long as your Google Calendar on Android is running the latest version, you are able to highlight those extremely urgent meetings and important birthdays or anniversaries by performing a simple color switch as and when required. Not only that, should you opt to add events, those are also easier to perform and more fun while you are at it thanks to the redesigned date and time pickers. In addition, there is also a redesigned timezone picker that makes life simpler to locate the region that you’re looking for regardless of where you are at the moment. The latest version of Google Calendar for Android will target devices which run on Android 4.0.3 and above (you will need Android 4.1 or higher for custom event colors though).
Hmmm, now this is an interesting bit of news – it seems that the Asus Nexus 7 still has some miles left in its legs, considering the fact that it has been recently re-certified by the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group), where it now boasts of a new build number of JWR11. It is notable to note that this model number the exact same one as the current version of the Nexus 7, so you can make your own deductions that this is absolutely not the rumored Nexus 7 refresh that many folks have been keeping their fingers crossed for.
I guess what we are looking at here is most probably the very same Asus Nexus 7 that everyone has come to know and love, although it will be powered by a software build which no one else outside of Google and Asus has managed to get their hands on. Could it be that it will run on Android 4.3, which might point to the possibility of obtaining re-certification with the Bluetooth SIG? After all, whispers have it that Android 4.3 will bring support for low-energy Bluetooth 4.0, so that might be the case to trigger the re-certification clause.
