Jelly Bean


The Android ecosystem isn't tightly controlled like Apple's, so the idea that 2 different UIs (one for phones, and one for tablets depending on the screen size 7" up to 13") would be enough to make all devices work to their fullest may not be correct. At least, that's Google's idea with the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, which reportedly has 3 different UIs to take advantage of each screen size.


The different UIs are specifically for the Android system itself, of course, as apps will scale automatically to any size. Apps will all scale, but will only look good on larger screens assuming developers have bothered to use the Android SDK tools properly. Still, with Jelly Bean, Google has decided that the interaction metaphors used on phones or on 10" tablets may not be the best for use on a 7" tablet, and has added in an extra UI for that use case, which mixes together the best of both worlds.


We've seen the evidence of this with the Nexus 7, which uses the pull-down notification shade that is seen in Android phones, but has the paneled app layouts that you'd expect from an Android tablet. At first, it was thought that the Nexus 7 was using the phone UI, but actually it is a new UI layout for 7" tablets. So phone, 7" tablet, and 10" tablet layouts are going to be the defaults for Android Jelly Bean and going forward.

Google latest Android version 4.1 is called "Jelly Bean", Google will release the JB in July and the first Smartphone that will get it, Will be the GALAXY Nexus.



Jelly Bean Fast & Smooth




With buttery graphics and silky transitions. We put Android under a microscope, making everything feel fast, fluid, and smooth, Google called it the "Project Butter". Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning pages in a book.

More reactive and uniform touch responses mean you can almost feel the pixels beneath as your finger moves across the screen. Jelly Bean makes your Android device even more responsive by boosting your device's CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don't need it to improve battery life.



New Google Voice Search




Sometimes you'd rather just speak your search query. Or just ask a question. Android lets you search the web with your voice, and it's convenient for getting quick answers on the fly. It speaks back to you and is powered by the Knowledge Graph, bringing you a precise answer if it knows it, and precisely ranked search results, so you can always find out more.
