Made official in late June, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is about to make its way into several Android devices, such as Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola XOOM and many more.
However, the first device to be launched with Jelly Bean onboard is the Google Nexus 7 tablet, which is expected to arrive on the market later this month.
In fact, it’s been confirmed that the Nexus 7 will be delivered with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, a newer version of the operating system that was officially announced two weeks ago.
For the time being, it’s unclear if other Android devices that have been confirmed for a Jelly Bean upgrade will be getting the same version of the platform.
In this regard, Google has just announced the immediate availability of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ devices.
Keep in mind that this upgrade is not compatible with “standard” Galaxy Nexus devices, but Google promised to expand the availability of the update to other Android smartphones and tablets soon.
According to Google, “up next for Jelly Bean: all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola XOOM and of course, Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month.”
With Jelly Bean, users will have a faster, more fluid and smoother experience. Furthermore, notifications are now expandable and actionable, while keyboard is now more accurate than previous versions of Android.
Google also redesigned the entire search experience, so users will get a new interface and much faster Voice Search.
There’s also a new application included in the update, which is called Google Now. This application informs users on the weather, traffic or provides them with various information on request, even before starting their days.
