It has been a while since Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean now that it has started rolling out the update for Galaxy Nexus users and it is expected to reach other devices soon! Here is the entire change log telling you what is new in Jelly Bean Android 4.1 – how is it different from Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0
Tag: android 4.1
Yes, it may sound very odd – Motorola which is owned by Google (the creator of Android) is rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 updates at a time when Google has gone ahead and announced Jelly Bean Android 4.1. Not only it shows the mess Motorola is in, but also the stress it is giving to all the Razr owners.
Nonetheless, Motorola is now rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich updates in India for Razr and Razr Maxx – the same update was rolled out a week ago in the US. This update is available OTA (Over the Air) and is about 285 MB, you can download it over WiFi or 3G.

Google has kicked-off its Google I/O keynote address by announcing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – this is a long rumored update, which got confirmed when we saw Google setting up Jelly Bean statue at it’s Mountain View campus a few days back! So what does Jelly Bean have to offer?
The design of Jelly Bean is focused on making the platform “simple, beautiful, and really smart”. Jelly Bean includes Project Butter, a system-wide overhaul to improve the smoothness of display out and be more responsive to your touch inputs, a revamped search experience with some very smart Google search powered voice control, and smarter control over widget resizing and home screen customization and personalization!
Project Butter is an attempt to make things as smooth as say on iOS devices! It is a nice and neat attempt in my opinion! Something Android needed desperately!
International users will like the extended language support in Jelly Bean. From Arabic to Hebrew, Japanese to Persian, also includes Hindi and Thai! There is also a new algorithm to power the predictive text on the improved keyboard!
Notifications get a major revamp, adding in photos, multiple notification sizes, and actions to allow you to interact with apps straight from the notification display – which is a very welcome and interesting change.
Overall, Jelly Bean is nothing revolutionary just tid-bits being sorted by Google, please don’t expect any major changes, it’s just a service pack sort of an update!
Less than 12 hours left for Google I/O to kick off and we can’t contain our excitement! Google has a habit of setting of a statues depicting their latest Android version at their Mountain View campus – they already have Gingerbread, Cupcake, Eclair, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich – latest addition to that is Jelly Bean – long rumored to be the latest upgrade to be announced at Google I/O – most likely this version will be Android 4.1.
What will be the changes, nobody knows! But we will keep you posted!
