    Jelly Bean running on Android 4.1 unveiled by Google – out in July

    Jelly Bean from Google which will run on Android 4.1 was unveiled in Google I/O at Moscone West in San Francisco. It will run on the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

    Jelly Bean, Android 4.1

    Jelly Bean Android 4.1 important features

    • First up on the list of additions to Jelly Bean is Project Butter, meant to make the Jelly Bean experience (naturally) “buttery smooth.” The Android team did so by bumping up Jelly Bean’s framerate to 60 FPS, and implemented vsync and triple buffering to tighten up the experience. Developers also have access to a new tool called systrace in the Jelly Bean SDK that displays what the rendering engine is up to.
    • Text input has also been improved, especially with regard to voice typing – users no longer need to have a solid network connection to make the feature work, as the speech interpretor lives directly on the device. The predictive keyboard is also able to guess at which word you intend to type out next. Only U.S. English will be supported for now. Arabic and Hebrew support has been improved as well, and they’re looking to add 18 new input languages.
    • Also new is a heightened focus on accessibility. The newly-added Gesture Mode allows blind users to navigate their devices with gestures, and support for external Braille devices has been added.
    • The Camera app has also been updated with a much faster way to review photos. Ice Cream Sandwich users may be familiar with the stock Camera app’s quick-shooting capabilities, but now users can pinch to enter a film strip view for faster perusal.
      Android Beam has been bolstered with the ability to share video via NFC, as well as the ability to pair with an NFC-enabled Bluetooth device just by tapping it.
    • Notifications have also gotten a bit of a facelift — users can now return phone calls from within the notifications shade, as well as view multiple emails without having to jump into a separate app. Apps can also tap into the notification shade, and they can be expanded by dragging down with two fingers.

    Google will begin their over-the-air updates to the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom in the middle of July.
