New features and improvements of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Along with the Nexus 7 tablet and the Nexus Q, the newest Android operating system was revealed today at the 2012 Google I/O conference. And similar to earlier iterations, it comes with a mouth-watering name: Jelly Bean. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings with it a number of new features and improvements over 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Transitions and animations are now noticeably smoother and faster compared to previous Android versions, including Ice Cream Sandwich. But aside from being tons slicker than before, Jelly Bean has a number of other notable features.

Let's take a look at some of them in this post.

1. Automagically resizable widgets If you're a bona fide tinkerer who redesigns your home screen often, you'll love Jelly Bean's widgets. They get resized while you're moving them around; icons also magically move and position themselves around a widget, depending on the widget's size.

2. Offline voice typing Android has long supported voice typing, but it's always needed internet connection to work. On Jelly Bean, Google introduced an offline version of the feature, so you can dictate notes even in areas without coverage.

3. Camera app film strip view On Ice Cream Sandwich, Google tweaked the camera app so it takes pictures with negligible shutter lag. Google ported that to Jelly Bean and also added a new feature that gives you the power to preview several photos you take in quick succession within a film strip view. mm-300-android-jelly-bean

4. Expanded and customizable notifications Google vastly improved notifications for Android 4.1 — you can customize them and see more info than you previously could. While you can only see a small tidbit of what your notification is about on older Android versions, you can press the snooze button of your alarm or even send emails (using short canned responses, if you wish) from within the notifications window on Jelly Beam. If you have a Google+ account, you can +1 photos without opening the app. You can now also expand or dismiss notifications with a two-finger gesture.

5. Natural-sounding Google Voice Siri may have found its strongest competitor in the new Google Voice. The feature can recognize spoken words and can speak back like Siri does in a natural-sounding, human-like voice. During the demo at I/O, Google Voice delivered near-instantaneous results when asked to search for particular terms like pygmy marmoset images.

6. Google Now This new feature will make you feel as if your phone or tablet was made just for you. Google Now brings up card-like widgets that display things relevant to your interest, but only if you choose to give it access to your search history and calendar. It can automatically show you alternate routes to take if it determines the usual route you take to go to work is clogged with heavy traffic jam. It will keep you updated and remind you of your favorite sports teams' upcoming games. You can also buy game tickets, book flights, and reserve restaurants from within Google Now cards.

Google Nexus tablet

Ever since the launch of the Motorola XOOM, the first Android tab powered by a real OS for tablets — Android 3 Honeycomb — there have been rumors claiming that we'll eventually see a Google tablet, just like we have Google phones with the Nexus line. With the annual Google I/O developer event coming in just a few weeks, we've seen plenty of tasty leaks recently, many of which are best served with a grain of salt. Indeed, practically all of the info that's currently available about the eventual Nexus tablet is still very unofficial, but you know how it is – when the big guys aren't letting anything out, we're letting the rumor mill in. Still, you never know when a too-good-to-be-true rumor might actually turn out real. That's why we thought that you wouldn't mind having all the important bits about the anticipated device neatly put in a single place, so here we go!
SPECS Even the unofficial sources haven't exactly been generous when it comes to the specs of this thing, but at least the most important pieces of the puzzle are in place. In line with the rumors that the device will be positioned as an affordable tablet, most rumors point at a 7” screen, like the one on the Kindle Fire. Thanks to some benchmark info by RightWare (makers of BrowserMark and other benchmark tools), we know that the display may sport a resolution of 1280x768 pixels, which is up to par with the competition. As far as the processor of the Nexus tablet goes, the Tegra 3 SoC by NVIDIA is the most-probable candidate, at least for now. Well, there were previous reports dismissing this probability, considering the affordable nature of the device, but we've actually seen multiple unofficial “confirmations” that customers will indeed experience the quad-core love with Google's tablet. NVIDIA itself has announced its plans to bring the Tegra 3 technology to the sub-$200 range, so this rumor might not be so far-fetched. Along with Tegra 3, the Nexus tablet may also come with 1GB of RAM, which is something like the industry-standard for Android devices right now. One of the most interesting questions regarding the upcoming device is which one's going to be the hardware manufacturer that's going to produce it. As it seems, almost all eyes are on ASUS, and that's terrific, having in mind that the company has released some of the most-successful and well-made Android tablets (and is continuing to do so). Courtesy of the same benchmark info mentioned above, there's this interesting piece that leads us to the 'Nexus 7' name for the device. It actually makes sense, considering the currently-popular naming schemes among Android tablet manufacturers. This also hints that there might be a 'Nexus 10' product in the works... SOFTWARE Trying to guess which OS version the Nexus tablet is going to run, the sources are basically torn between Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. However, things aren't really so simple, as is isn't certain if Jelly Bean is going to be the next major iteration of Android, or a minor updated designed for tablets. By the looks of it, seeing a major update so soon doesn't seem very likely, as ICS is yet to become available to most of the devices within the Android ecosystem. Still, it'll be a very nice surprise if the Nexus tab introduces us to some form of an update of the OS. One interesting rumor is that this particular update of the Android operating system for tablets will bring dual-boot functionality, allowing users to run Chrome OS on their tablets as well, although this certainly sounds like too big of a step for us. RELEASE DATE The new tablet will be among the presents that Google is going to give away to developers at this year's I/O, so June 27-29 is our best guess right now, when it comes to the Nexus tablet's release date. PRICE The most recent rumors point at the $149-$199 range, which would be a great price, but of course, this also makes us wonder if it won't be at the expense of the device's quality and features.

The pros and cons of purchasing a prepaid smartphone

While prepaid smartphones are not for everybody, the opportunity to purchase an iPhone or any other state-of-the-art device without a long-term carrier contract is an attractive value proposition for many consumers. For the first time since its debut in 2007, the iPhone is now available with no contract via Leap Wireless and its Cricket cellular service provider. Beginning June 29, Virgin Mobile USA will also be marketing Apple’s iconic smartphone with flexible, month-to-month subscriptions. Expect other top-of-the-line smartphones to follow suit, meaning those turned off by limited device options in the past now have cause to reconsider a prepaid plan. Before deciding whether a prepaid smartphone is the best option for you, consider these pros and cons first. Reasons why a prepaid smartphone might be worth buying Cheaper monthly plans: As is the case with other devices, the prepaid iPhone plans for Cricket and Virgin are substantially cheaper than what can be found with the larger carriers including AT&T, Verizon and Sprint (note that Virgin Mobile USA is a division of Sprint). On Cricket, for $55/month users can enjoy unlimited talking and texting. They also receive 2.3 gigabytes of data each month. If that data limit is exceeded, rather than paying more, Cricket reserves the right to slow down transmission speeds. Virgin will offer a few packages in that same range, including $50/month for unlimited talk and text (including 2.5GB of data before the potential of throttling). There is also a $40 option for 1,200 minutes and $30 option for 300 minutes. Compare this to the major carriers, where the cheapest offer comes from AT&T with a $60/month plan that includes 450 minutes, a comparatively puny 300 megabytes of data and and no texting. Sprint’s “Unlimited Everything” plan goes for $70/month. Most other plans from Verizon and AT&T that include a reasonable mix of voice, texting and data are close to or exceed $100/month. The monthly price differential between prepaid and major carrier packages for Android phones and BlackBerries are comparable. There are very few prepaid phones for Microsoft’s Windows mobile platform available on the market today. Month-to-month flexibility: Arguably more significant than saving $10 to $50 per month on your cell phone bill is the fact that you don’t have to enter into a cumbersome, two-year commitment with your carrier. With prepaid options, you can choose to suspend your service at any point (if you’re going on vacation, for instance) and pick things up at a later time. Further, there is no early termination penalty if you choose to change carriers or want to discontinue your service. No credit checks: If your credit score is below a certain level, the major carriers will make it difficult to sign-up for a long-term plan. Even if you are deemed eligible enough to pay them thousands of dollars over a two-year period of time, a poor credit rating may cause you to pay extra either at the onset of your contract or over time. With the prepaid option, you invest in the service upfront and don’t have to worry about credit checks or associated penalties. The biggest hangups in purchasing a prepaid phone
Sticker shock: Because prepaid phones are not subsidized by the longer-term income a two-year contract provides, the purchase price for devices is significantly higher than what is typically offered by the major carriers. The 16GB iPhone 4S, for instance, can be purchased for $199 with a two-year plan. The same device from Cricket will run you $499, while Virgin is selling the iPhone 4S for $649. You will generally see comparable prices for prepaid Android smartphones and BlackBerries. Data limitations: The more advanced smartphone you own, the more data you are likely to consume over a given month. According to research firm Analysis Mason, iPhone users on average go through about three times the amount of data as other smartphone owners. Android smartphones, particularly those manufactured by HTC, also generate significantly more data consumption than less advanced devices according to the report. The ability to play games, download and stream videos and constantly check-in with your Facebook friends throughout the day on these devices no doubt leads to higher data usage. While the prepaid plans don’t increase in price after a monthly data quota is hit, speeds slow down considerably, making it tough to enjoy many of the features that inspired you to purchase a smartphone in the first place. Inferior networks: Cellular networks that specialize in pre-paid plans are typically not as robust as the four major networks. This is also true for smaller carriers that lease network space from the bigger networks at wholesale and then market discount services to consumers. Faster 4G connections that are available for many Androids and BlackBerries (and will likely come to iPhones later this year) are not in place on the smaller, regional networks. It is not realistic to expect a Cricket or Virgin to offer the same level of service as the big boys. This could become a bigger problem over time, particularly for heavier users. There is also no guarantee of nationwide coverage, so check your carrier’s coverage map before purchasing a phone. In fact, you can’t currently buy a prepaid iPhone from Cricket in Chicago and other major markets. A good deal overall for moderate users Despite these issues, there is no better time than today to purchase a prepaid smartphone. With iPhones entering into the picture, there is no longer the stigma (or reality) that prepaid plans are the realm of second-tier devices. If you anticipate using your smartphone moderately, and are not engaging in heavy data-consumption activities like video streaming and multiplayer gaming, a prepaid plan might be the best bang for your buck. Over time, you will save significantly more money and have the flexibility to pause or suspend your service for any reason. Beyond Cricket and Virgin, there are several regional carriers including Boost Mobile, Jitterbug and MetroPCS that offer prepaid plans. And while the major carriers have begun to market their own prepaid options, the devices they currently offer for those plans are extremely limited. That may motivate you to commit to a two-year deal after all.
