Google to Announce Nexus 7 Tablet & Jelly Bean, the Latest Android OS

With the beginning of Google’s I/O conference the rumors about the next version of ICS has started to get thicker by every passing minute. According to some concrete sources the name of the OS will be Jelly Bean and it will be announced towards the end of the conference. Though, it is not a proper surety that whether it will be an Android 4.1 or Android 5.0, but that is only playing with numbers.

Knowledgeable readers should know that the newer versions of the Android OS has always been named after edible delicacies, all the way from Angel Cake to Battenberg to Cupcake to Donut to Eclair to Froyo to Gingerbread to Honeycomb to IceCream Sandwich and now it is Jelly Bean, another sweet savory. 

At the present moment the features are not conspicuous enough but it is being conjectured that in order to pose some serious competition to Apple’s SIRI Google is expected to sport something akin to the said voice assistant. The voice recognition software project has officially been codenamed the Project Majel.

There are reports that the Jelly Bean will bring with it the final version of the Google Chrome for Android devices which has been in the beta state for quite some time now.
One more thing that is raising a number of eyebrows is Google’s plans to unveil a $199 tablet in association with Taiwanese tech giant ASUS (which itself has some reputation in the tablet world). The Tablet is expected to be called the Nexus 7.

The 7 inch tablet will sport a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad core processor, GeForce 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM with two different storage variants: 8GB and 16GB. The Nexus 7 will also be sporting NFC and Android Beam.

There are some more things to be expected let us keep our fingers crossed and wait for things to happen. Adios.
