Jelly Bean brings 3 different UIs for Android devices

The Android ecosystem isn't tightly controlled like Apple's, so the idea that 2 different UIs (one for phones, and one for tablets) would be enough to make all devices work to their fullest may not be correct. At least, that's Google's idea with Jelly Bean...

we're all aware of this. the Padfone does this and Motorola does this with Webtop, the different TABLET UIs based on display size is what's different.

and that's where the hybrid mode comes in. I've seen videos of the Nexus 7 UI, and CM9 Paranoid Android can easily replicate it and you can even customize it to your liking. basically what I'm saying is, it's not surprising that Google would implement this in Jelly Bean since it's easy enough to do in ICS.
