Google claims Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. When we took a look at the first Jelly Bean-equipped tablet a couple of weeks back, the Nexus 7, we felt Jelly Bean had a lot to offer users, both in terms of performance enhancements as well as new functionality. Here, we'll take a closer look at some of the new and improved features that come with Jelly Bean.

I am waiting for a solid Jellybean ROM for my Sensation I am currently on and ICS rom and will probably get one from the same providers Revolution as this is the third one from them that is solid all the way around. Do not get me wrong I have used many but the Revolution teams are always super solid top to bottom so there my backup and main used ROM completely.

Xonar DGX
Intel Gigabit CT
Geforce GTX 770 4GB
G.Skill X1600/1754 2x8GB 7/8/8/24

My "old" Nexus S got JB a couple of weeks ago. It's made my phone more usable and I really like it now. When I first got it I had the choice of the Nexus S for free or pay $150 for the iphone. For a while I was sort of regretting my choice, the phone was buggy, the battery would barely last a day and the phone reception was worse then my plain ol' cellphone I was replacing. After a few updates the phone went from POS status to OK. With the ICS update I enjoyed some of the new features, but it was a bit buggy. Now with JB it's finally the phone I was hoping it would be. Even with the dated hardware the phone is quick, responsive and the best part is the battery is lasting longer then it ever has before. :-)

I really can't wait until this hits the Samsung Galaxy S3. 

I still kinda wish I went with the Google Nexus though. :C

not sure if android just likes the code names honeycomb, ice cream sandwhich, and jellybean or if its just a way of trying to appeal to the candy side in all of us

Jelly Bean 4.1.2 is great including the Google Now software. The 4.2 has a few added features but there are some compatibility issues with certain things like bluetooth and a few others. Can't wait to get Jellybean for my Droid RAZR.
