Google has today officially revealed Android 4.1 codenamed “Jellybean”, the newest version of Google’s top selling mobile operating system.
Android 4.1 comes with a host of new improvements included a slightly refreshed user interface, offline speech to text support (previous versions of Android required an internet connection to turn speech into text), Google Now, which allows for location based searching (allowing for more intelligent searching, such as automatically reporting when the next bus arrives while at a bus station, flights while at an airport, etc.), predictive keyboard, and most importantly given the performance of previous versions of Android an improved graphics pipeline that will supposedly triple graphics performance.
Android 4.1 will come bundled with the new Nexus 7, while the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus will see an update in July. As per usual other devices may have to wait considerably longer as manufacturers struggle to update their devices and carriers slowly approve said updates.
