Nexus 7 Commercial Series: Jelly Bean Tips

by: Derek RossJuly 31, 2012

Another day, another Nexus 7 commercial from Google. Today’s Nexus 7 commercial centers around the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 popular features and a few useful tips and tricks.

In Jelly Bean, you’ll have a hard time circumventing the face unlock feature after you enable ‘blink check’ which asks the user to blink, determining if a human is being used to unlock the phone instead of a photograph. Next, they highlight Google Now, arguably one of the best features of Jelly Bean. Google Now gives you just the right information to you when you need it, automatically. Next, they demo Voice Search, also known as the “Siri competitor” which just happens to blow that iOS gal out of the water. Lastly, the commercial demonstrates beautiful new home screen widgets and the revamped notification system.

What’s your favorite Jelly Bean feature?

    OK, where is the face unlock for the android jelly bean powered nexus 7? I don’t see it in settings, on the home screen, or in the Google play store. …and when I try to enter a credit card number it will only take so many digits. Still buggy, no useful help facility either. Where is the bug list?

      Face unlock is in the settings listed under security, there’s a user manual on your home screen when you first receive the device, and how many digits is your credit card number. Typically they’re only 16 digits long.

  • I am trying to find reasons to keep my Nexus 7, but am thinking about returning it for an iPad. Please help me. I am looking to download either epub or pdf from a specific site regularly. I need to be able to annotate the document using underlining, highlights and add comments for personal use. On the ipad I know I’m able to link to the various links in the documents, but I can seem to find a way to do so on Nexus 7. Please let me now if there is some app or way to complete this. I also have read some stuff on about downloading ubuntu on the device. Any opinion on this?
