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.
