Amidst lots of other exciting announcements at its I/O conference last month, Google unveiled Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
, the latest version of Google
’s mobile OS. Now, the update is rolling out, and the first hardware to taste it will be Galaxy Nexus
(It makes sense; it’s hard to say how much longer
the Galaxy devices will be sold in the U.S., thanks to Apple’s patent suit.) You can currently snag a Galaxy Nexus on the Google Play Store for $349 unlocked, and it will run on AT&T and T-Mobile networks.
Jelly Bean isn’t a revolutionary update, but there are some strong enhancements, including some performance tweaks, interface and usability upgrades, overhauled search functionality, offline voice typing, and the overly-helpful Google Now feature.
Look for Jelly Bean to hit other Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and Nexus 7 devices next.
