Kobo releases Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for its affordable Arc tablet
Glorious times ensue for Kobo Arc owners! The manufacturer has just released an update bringing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the inexpensive tablet. The Arc may be running a custom user interface, but that won't stand in the way it getting a bunch of new features and improvements with this update.

Users should notice a significant improvement in the device's performance, as the update will not only bring features like Google Now, expandable notifications and Face Unlock, but, probably more importantly, will also enhance the responsiveness and speed of the tablet.

The update should become available as soon as users connect the Kobo Arc to a Wi-Fi network.

If I could find it in the US, Id check it out. Best Buy was supposed to have it, but never received it.

my Arc HD 32 bg 7" tablet is brilliant. Have played on a kindle fire too but have to admit that the Kobo is more user friendly. Indeed it more than meets my needs and then some, has comfortably replaced my laptop for home use.
