Jelly Bean and the changes it's expected to bring

0. phoneArena 26 Jun 2012, 08:21 posted on

Android's Jelly Bean update has been expected for quite some time, and as you're probably aware, it's almost certain that it will finally be officially introduced tomorrow at Google I/O. With that in mind, some of you may have lost the track of the changes and improvements that are rumored to be part of Jelly Bean...

Seems pretty solid. Unlike iOASS 6 - these are actually very significant because they will affect every device running 4.1.

How does this comment not get moderated? I see several comments below that got moderated even though they didn't break any rules. This one clearly is.

OS favoritism at its finest.

Blame the author.. I think he must've spent all of five minutes coming up with this list. There are a LOT of possibilities which aren't even touched upon here. If you're interested, check this out:

...why?
Flash content is getting lower and lower. Soon, all Flash content will be replaced in HTML5. Don't get a f**king iPhone, flash isn't the only reason to have an Android phone. Far from it, actually.

Flash content may be getting replaced by HTML5, but neither your nor I know how soon this will be. Flash is a big deal to me and I want to be able to have it. If it's not around when the IP5 comes out I will be getting it. Unless the IP5 is an ugly piece of garbage with a weak glass structure and no LTE capabilities.

No other operating systems support Flash either. Just because one doesn't, you're going to switch to the other... that STILL doesn't?
Seems legit. Your choice, I guess.
Also, how big of a deal is it? I don't use it that often, actually.

Since the BlackBerry PlayBook supports Flash, it's extreamly likely that BB10 will as well, if it ever gets here.

Without flash, iUsers won't be able to see how slow their 3G speed iPhone 4S compared Tmobile 4G phones.

Exactly no flash sucks when it's the iPhone, but if android doesn't support it who needs flash.

A website full of android trolls

No, lack of flash still hurts the iphone and ICS still supports flash - so nothing has changed until everything has switched to HTML5.

Yeah iOS6 is revolutionary: holographic projector, tricorder and...worse maps. Also fresh new UI if I'm correct

iOS6 is......... m a g i c a l. Oh wait, it's another update playing catchup to Android. Not so awesome, just gives you some of the stuff we already have.

Nah, if you've been following what Google normally does with their updates, there's a major update and then a minor stability update. 2.2 - major, 2.3 - minor. 4.0 - major, 4.1 - probably going to be another minor unless Google has something big in store.
