xda-developers, via Samsung-Updates, now offers interested users the latest Jelly Bean build for the Galaxy S3 – and we already showed you a variety of Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean leaks in the recent weeks that were dated back to July and August. Unfortunately, and just like its predecessors, this Jelly Bean update is only available to international Galaxy S3 owners, so don’t get all too excited.

Google Now

Google Now might be in its infancy, but it’s still a really useful part of Google Search. Now it’s getting even better with a new update to Google Search in the Google Play store.

Jelly Bean users now get a few cool new functions added to the Google Now experience. One of these changes has to do with movie showtimes. Google Now will populate information on the movie that you search for, such as where it’s playing and at what times, it can even send you alerts if you are near a specific theater. Another similar feature comes to sports, you can now manually select your favorite sports team and a card will be updated with information about the team, updating in real-time. Last but not least, Google Now is getting very useful public service alert capabilities. Snow coming to your area? Perhaps a tropical storm? Google Now will gather information that could affect the area in which you live, giving you updates and alerts as they develop.

A couple of days ago we told you that Samsung confirmed at IFA 2012 that the Galaxy S3, alongside the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Note, will receive their Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean updates “very soon,” without specifying any roll out date. Previous rumors have led us to believe that the international Galaxy S3 LTE version will be the first to run Jelly Bean and it looks like an unexpected report from Germany confirms it. The short video below has been recorded at Vodafone’s booth, where a Black Galaxy S3 model has been spotted running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. The…

HBO-GO-tablet

The HBO Go is the perfect app for those who need to have access to the network’s original series wherever they are. We last reported about the tablet support that HBO has added for the Android app back in July, but it still didn’t support devices running Jelly Bean, the Nexus 7 included. Owners of the tablet now have a reason to be cheerful about.

galaxy nexus jelly bean

Yes, the Galaxy Nexus is a Nexus device that should receive all Android upgrades almost immediately after Google releases a new version. But no, that doesn’t happen with all Galaxy Nexus versions out there, and we specifically mean Verizon and Sprint, as carriers have their own not-so-hidden agendas when it comes to releasing such updates in a timely manner. While there’s absolutely no official confirmation that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1 Jelly Bean build is ready to roll out, we can tell you that at least one user is apparently getting it as a build JRO03O, a 146.6MB download,…

OG Motorola Droid

It’s hard to believe that its been three years since the original Motorola Droid hit the market. Whether you love Motorola or not, it’s hard to deny that the Droid was a significant part of the growth of Android during its heyday. Fast-forwarding today and the Droid still manages to carry on, despite being near-archaic in age for a smartphone. While most Droid users have moved on to newer handsets, one developer at XDA has decided to show just how capable the Droid still is, pushing out a complete build of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
