What is the New Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?

Posted by Admin July - 7 - 2012 - Saturday

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the latest Google’s hugely popular mobile operating system with the Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0 as its precursor. This is lauded as the first version of Android designed for both smartphones and tablets. The Jelly Bean is expected to bring some incremental changes being the first version of Android that was truly beautiful to look at and fun to use, according to those who first tested the software.

The Jelly Bean is the most refined version of the OS to hit the market, with its increased responsiveness, and predictive technologies. The new software is also faster than the Ice Cream Sandwich and Google has named its performance as ‘Project Butter.’ To keep the frame rates up with the Android UI, graphics are now triple buffered to make things super-fluid, CPU and graphics can now run in parallel, and run at 60 fps to make it easy to the eyes. It also includes Google Now and search based on a series of cards instead of the tabs in Chrome for Android, as well as notifications and widgets, keyboard and voice recognition, and sharing and pictures.

The best part about the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is that it will debut this July on Google-branded, Asus-built Nexus tablet as well as the Google’s developer-friendly Samsung Galaxy Nexus phones.
