That’s great news, even if it’s we did kinda know about it for a long while. Let’s see… there was an FCC approval, the leaked support docs, the Win and Spin contest on Facebook, and a press photo that suggested an obviously inaccurate July 11 launch date.

Now that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been officially released, it’s only natural to expect phones and tablets to take the leap to the latest OS. However, the Android 4.0 ICS roll out process has been frustratingly slow, and there are still a lot of high-end devices lacking Ice Cream Sandwich.
