Android Jelly Bean

Google just released during the Google I/O the new Android called Jelly Bean, here are it's major features

Project Butter is the major new innovation in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, making the entire UI fast, fluid and smooth. The entire interface runs at 60 frames per second and animations are smoother and quicker.

The other big thing is power efficiency. Jelly Bean now dials the CPU back to lower frequency when its not in use.

Jelly Bean comes with an improved Google Voice Search, now spoken by a much more human-sounding voice compared to Siri and S Voice.

The home screen has also been tweaked, adding some nice features like dynamically resizing widgets, widgets that will now automatically resize as you move them across screens.

Notifications get a major revamp with expanded Gmail notifications, multiple notification sizes, and actions to allow you to interact with apps straight from the notification display without needing to open the relevant app.

Notice that compared to iOS 6 it does not bring a lot of features but this is normal because we are jumping from Android 4.0 to 4.1 not to 5.0 so that updates doesn't have to be this much. iOS 6 was a big deception because it did not bring major updates for this big jump (from ios 5 to 6)
Notice how the naming of the version is VERY important

That's it for now hope you enjoyed this summary of the New Android
