Google Android 4.1, Jelly Bean Tablet

Hungry? Hope so, as Google plans another tasty sugar filled Android OS update, this time deemed as Jelly Bean.

Compared to past sweet tooth versions of Google’s Android operating system, we have seen Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich as predecessors, but now comes some really sweet stuff, as in candy. Let’s hope this new OS will have some comparable sweet features also.

Already claimed to be debuting on the Google Nexus tablet that is being worked on with partner Asus for a 7-inch model, Android 4.1 will be shipping on the new device. Originally labeled as Android 5.0, it is since officially been backed up a bit to 4.1.

Rumors around the final name of the tablet include Nexus 7 and Nextus, but again, nothing official from the Google camp. The new Jelly Bean powered tablet will use a 7-inch display on a 720p resolution. NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor at 1280 x 768 will also fit nicely.

When can we see this new candy filled Google tablet then? Most are expecting a release at next month’s annual Google I/O developer conference for the official release. Also, the back down to 4.1 from 5.0 in the naming convention have some wondering if this is just a minor update rather than the entire candy jar that was first hoped for.

    This isn’t uncommon. Gingerbread when released became 2.3 instead of 3.0. 3.0 became Honeycomb. So it’s not too strange to see Jellybean become 4.1, if indeed it does.

    However, I do believe that Google needs to do a whole lot more work in regards to the “fragmentation” issue. Unfortunately I don’t know if they can. My reasons are as follows:

    Unlike the iPhone, where the hardware basically stays the same from generation to generation, there are several manufacturers with several different hardware configurations. These could be processor, gpu, radio, LCD/AMOLED/Screen, audio, etc. hardware differences.

    In some respects, the Android handset/tablet has become the new PC. Different drivers need to be created/installed for each different piece of hardware.

    This could still work as long as the manufacturers cooperate more. Let Google be responsible for the main OS and standard applications. Let the manufacturers be responsible for their hardware.

    Sure, it isn’t as simple as that, but eventually it could be.
