Well, it turns out that the feature isn't due to the hardware in the new Nexus 7, but rather the software of Android 4.3...

This is only for devices with dual speakers? Then the Google Edition One should be getting it as well.

I think the fact that Android JB works on both phones and tablets means its in there for the phones, being accessible is a whole other story. Google thought far enough ahead that bringing parity makes sense, same OS powers tablets and smartphones, just the form factor auto recognizes what the device is.

Good to see Android is finally catching up with Symbian. I wish Android developers use Symbian flagship phones as examples, because I have to admit this Symbian OS has the best features for mobile until now. Andoid can do a lot of things, but too bad you have to root it and use custom ROMs. Version 5.0, can be perfect if all of these Symbian features comes out of the box.
