Jelly Bean will put an end to notifications spam!

by: Bams SadewoJune 28, 2012

Some Android apps, most notably the free ones, bombard users with ads in exchange of not having to spend a cent to download them. Unfortunately, not only do ads hog the battery of your Android device, but some even go as far as invading your device’s notification system. The troubling part is that it’s rather hard to pinpoint the culprit that’s sending the ads to the notification bar of the device. This will all change with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Among the myriads of goodies that Jelly Bean comes with, there’s a new feature that lets you track spam that infiltrates your notifications bar. You can see what application pushed the spam by simply long-pressing the [...]

UK Google Nexus 7 release date and pricing unveiled, it’s still very affordable

by: Chris SmithJune 28, 2012

Google announced the Nexus 7 tablet during the first Google I/O keynote and opened up pre-orders for the device in the U.S., Canada and Australia. The Google Nexus 7 is scheduled to start shipping in those countries in July and it will cost $199, or $249 depending on how much storage you require.

But Google will certainly want to sell the device in more countries as fast as possible in order to beat Amazon’s Kindle Fire, a device that’s the main target of the Nexus 7. So far, Amazon was unable to sell the Kindle Fire outside the U.S. as it lacked the necessary licensing deals to bring all of the digital content available to American Kindle [...]

Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update details: Samsung engineers upgraded RAM for a reason

by: Chris SmithJune 28, 2012

From the moment Google confirmed during the first Google I/O keynote that Jelly Bean is the codename for Android 4.1 rather than Android 5.0 – as various rumors suggested ahead of the event – we started wondering what Android devices will get the new Android version.

Since Jelly Bean can be perceived as an incremental upgrade, meant to improve the overall user experience while adding some interesting perks, it would be logical to assume that all Android smartphones and tablets that run Ice Cream Sandwich – or that will get it eventually – will also be able to run Jelly Bean. However, Google did not shed any light on that matter during the [...]

Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean OTA update available for download, with a twist

by: Chris SmithJune 28, 2012

Android fans know by now that Google unveiled yesterday Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it’s next-gen mobile operating system that’s already found on board of the Google Nexus 7, its first tablet that was also launched yesterday.

Google said that Jelly Bean will be available to download as an over-the-air (OTA) update in July, but only a few selected devices including the Samung Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola Xoom tablet will get it initially.

Of course, that’s not really surprising considering that it’s not Google that handles software updates for the vast majority of Android devices out there. It’s up to Android device [...]

Purported Google Nexus tablet press shots leaked, Android 4.1 spotted

by: Chris SmithJune 6, 2012

Google’s first Nexus-branded tablet is expected to be unveiled later this month when the search giant will host its annual Google I/O developer conference. The 7-inch Android tablet is reportedly made by Asus, and represents Google’s first attempt to create a pure Android tablet.

Google Nexus vs Kindle Fire

However, the device will not be an iPad rival, which is what people would assume Google would be interested in launching. Instead, the Google Nexus will be an affordable Android tablet meant to neutralize the Amazon Kindle Fire and its potential effects on the Android tablet business.

Amazon released the Kindle Fire last fall, and [...]
