After releasing a new version of Android, everyone (vendors and customers) hopes to update their device to the latest release of Google OS. As we already know from past experience, some devices may not support the latest version of the Android operating system for some hardware limitations. But in most cases, companies are able (albeit late compared to the initial plans) to optimize and adapt the OS in the tablet or smartphone on the market for some months already.
This past weekend, ASUS has confirmed (and later clarified) that the latest Android release, the Jelly Bean, will be offered to the most recent Transformer TF201, TF300 TF700, and TF101 tablet pad, and without excluding the SL101. Today is the turn of Toshiba to update for free and automatically, via OTA. This will be for Toshiba’s Android tablets, the Toshiba AT200 and Toshiba AT300.
Currently, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is only available on Nexus 7, which will be in Italy from September. It will be priced at $249 (16GB version). We wish to clarify that no reference is made to Toshiba AT100, but, as in the case of older Transformer Pad, we do not exclude that this tablet gets the update. The Toshiba AT270 , however, should be sold directly with Android 4.1, or at most with Android 4.0 upgradeable.
We remark that, even in this case, the information are simple indiscretions that are not yet confirmed. For added security, expect an official commentary by Toshiba Italy, which certainly will come soon.
When Google officially unveiled the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, few would have gambled that one of the first devices to receive the new release of the Mobile OS was the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Thanks to the community that revolves around the Android world, in fact, Jelly Bean landed on one of the main rivals of the Nexus 7.
Although this is still a beta version, the ROM seems to work pretty well, although not free of bugs fixed and lack some features, such as support for the HD codecs.
Note that the installation of ROM is an alternative that could cause damage to the terminal and the loss of the guarantee offered by the manufacturer.
So, Jelly Bean also landed on one of the most formidable rivals of the Google tablet. On reflection, however, it is not such a strange thing. Thats’s Android!
The Google Nexus 7 and Android Jelly Bean: they were both expected and did not betray the expectations. Google has unveiled its first tablet, which will be sold directly online with a price ranging between $199 and $ 249 , and the new version of its mobile platform, the Jelly Bean 4.1 . What will happen to all the devices already in circulation?
Beyond the presentations and debuts, the recurring question in these early days of the launch of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is always the same: which devices will be updated? And most importantly, when will the update be? Yes, because this time the vast majority of smartphones and tablets in circulation has not yet received Android 4.0 ICS and the risk is that Jelly Bean does not arrive at all.
Some examples? Take the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich should arrive by summer, between July and August, and Jelly Bean there are no certainties. The tablet had debuted with Honeycomb 3.1 and the new version would be the third update. Will there be? It is not known yet, but we have all the technical characteristics have remained virtually the same as in the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 2.
In this post, we will talk about the first tablet of Google, called the Nexus 7. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is the first device to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It has a 7-inch screen with 1280 x 800 pixels, Wi-Fi, NFC, quad-core processor Nvidia Tegra 3 (With a 12-core GPU), front camera of 1.2 MP, pre-loaded Chrome browser, increased use of YouTube, optimized Google Maps, and a battery of 4,325 mAh.
The tablet does not have 3G or 4G, nor has a microSD card slot.
According to Google, the Nexus 7 is constructed so that the user can take advantage of the reproduction of Google and its contents. The tablet will be available in mid-July in two versions: 8GB (which costs $199.99) and 16GB ($ 249).
Currently, orders are open. Note that for the moment, the tablet is available for pre-order only in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia.
