Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Walkthrough on Nexus 7 [VIDEO]

Unless you’ve been living under Mt Mordor for the past day or so, you might have known that Android 4.0 Jelly Bean has been officially announced and will be on its way for phones and tablets starting next month.

We posted our in-depth look at what’s new in Jelly Bean yesterday, but there’s nothing like seeing it all in action on video.

If you can’t find a way to get your hands on a tablet or phone that has the upgrade we’ve brought an 8 minute in-depth video showing you everything there is to see when it comes to the tablet-specific side of things.

We get a nice look at the new home screen management, new Google Search voice features, Google Now,Project Butter, the new notifications, and a whole lot more important things to take note of in this milestone upgrade. Go ahead and hit the play button the video above.

    I ordered one yesterday to replace my OG Tab and wasn’t completely sure I made the right choice of buying this or waiting to see what else was coming. After seeing this, I can’t wait, looks awesome. Makes me want the Galaxy Nexus even more now.

    It’ll be a contender for the new Amazon tablet for certain, these 200$ tablets that generate their returns based on add marketing and app purchases are going to create their own market space instead of trying to compete with iPad’s. Altho’ I really wish they would’ve only manufactured a 4GB model with an SD card slot and a VGA front camera and 3mp rear camera to increase functionality by cost cutting on the listed components, because the SD card slot is way more important than the interal memory as long as the internal memory can accomodate the OS and future updates and the rear camera is really important for app integration like Google Goggles etc.even if it takes low quality photos and video.

    I also noticed…Jelly Bean is 4.1+, 4.0 is Gingerbread…
    Here is what I’m wondering: About 3 weeks ago I purchased an Asus Tab (TF300T) with ICS 4.0.5 I believe. I recently heard about the TF700 coming out next month, so I am debating returning mine for the new one. However, if the pricing is higher it will be out of my range…and my question here is; will I be able to upgrade to Jelly Bean on the Asus TF300T without rooting it?

      4.0 is Ice Cream Sandwich, not Gingerbread.

    Hey Phandroid people, can you check if you can charge the Nexus 7 with an external battery (like Duracell, Energizer and many more) over USB (5V, I think 500 mA?). As the original Transformer (and I think the Prime also) cannot do that. Even with system turned off.
    Kind of a dealbreaker for me.
    Thx.
