As the days keep passing we are coming closer and closer to U.S. launch of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on many of the most popular android devices. CNET has been covering the topic and all of the new features Jelly Bean will bring to it’s Google/Android users. A few of these new features include, smoother animations, better voice features, voice dictating w/o an internet connection, upgraded notification bar, better photo gallery/camera, Google Beam, and Google Now. Google Now periodically checks your location and connects it to your calender and sends you notifications based on your upcoming commute such as traffic and how long the commute will take. Jelly Bean is estimated to be released in October this year. Samsung, being one of the primary Android phone developers, will probably see these releases the soonest. Samsung provides some of the most powerful devices in the cell phone market and has released an ad comparing their Galaxy S3 to the new iPhone 5 and even though the device is almost 6 months old it has many advantages over the iPhone 5. Consumers might soon realize how apple is falling behind in there technology and pay less attention to apple’s marketing schemes.



About i101akarn

Greetings, My name is Andrew Karn and I am a freshman at IUPUI studying informatics. I graduated in 2007 and this is my first time back to school after a 5 year break. Not much of a blogger so looks like we may be in for a little adventure. Originally I was planning to go somewhere into the culinary field , but never actually attended a university. I did however spend the past 6+ years working in 2 of the best restaurants in Indiana. After my years in the kitchen I ultimately decided that it just wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So back to school I go! Now that I'm 24 and married it seems a little awkard and out of the "norm", but technology has always been one of my top interests and I can't wait to get elbow deep in informatics. Also after viewing the WordPress website, I'm starting to feel like this could start to become more than just an assignment.
