Is Your Nexus 7's Screen Loose?

Google’s new Nexus 7 is a great little tablet, but it may have bigger problems than being difficult to unpack: we’re hearing reports that suggest many of the devices have a loose screen.

Phandroid reports that, in some cases, the screen creaks whenever pressure is applied to it. Over time, some users have even reported that the glass begins to protrude over the edge of the bezel. A thread on XDA Developers suggests that it’s easy enough to fix by taking off the back and tightening a couple of screws. Australian order should start arriving from Google next week. Did you get yours early? Is your screen loose? Have you tried the fix? [Phandroid, XDA Developers]
