Google JB1

 

 

 

Google unveiled Android 4.1, the latest version of its mobile operating system, code-named Jelly Bean, at the annual Google I/O developers’ conference. The operating system follows in the path of its predecessors and allows smartphone makers to modify software to best suit their handset designs. Since it’s an open-source platform, modifications are easily made and, in many cases, deliver much-needed improvements. Even so, out-of-the-box, Jelly Bean appears to be a winner. From a new way of handling notifications to improved performance, the operating system seems to be one that can do a much better job than its predecessors in competing with Apple’s own iOS. Android customers will be happy to hear, though, that Jelly Bean is launching in mid-July on a host of products. It’ll also be rolled out to select Android 4.0-based devices. In other words, Jelly Bean is coming soon. This is a good time for Android fans or prospective users to learn more about some of the key features that make it special.
