Two new things came out together from the Android camp recently. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and the Nexus 7 tablet, the first tablet to get the coveted Google brand name.
The new tablet came preloaded with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. We must assure you that this was no coincidence. Emerging information suggests that Google’s interest for 7 inch devices is more than what we thought.
The company has reportedly optimized the new iteration of Android platform specifically for 7 incher tablets.
According to certain estimates, the lower end of the tablet market is going to witness fierce competition as more and more major tablet makers are planning to tap this rapidly growing segment.
Apple is reportedly preparing a 7 incher and major Android tablet makers also will be sporting their share to put up a strong fight.
Since all of them will be showing off their 7 inch devices, we hope the 7 incher specificity of Android 4.1 will do well for the Android camp in the imminent future.
However, according to reports, apart from the 7 incher version, Jelly Bean will have a smartphone version and yet another one for the 10 inch tablets.
However, there are concerns over possible fragmentation of the platform due to the presence of too many different versions.
