Jelly Bean officially confirmed as Android 4.1

Jelly Bean officially confirmed as Android 4.1We’ve been speculating about the next version of Android for freakin’ ages, man, even before Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) touched down. For examples, check this out from last September.

Google teased Jelly Bean at Mobile World Congress in February, and now we have apparently official confirmation.

You know the Google Play store over in the US, right? Where they sell Nexus smartphones SIM free? Well, it’s given the game away – jawing about “Android 4.1 Jelly Bean”.

The words appear in a listing for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus HSPA+, which Google Play says will “soon [be] the first phone with Android 4.1 Jell…” Er, presumably that’s Jelly Bean.

There’s not much we can garner from the world’s first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean screenshot, other than a slightly tailored search bar and, uhm, a new background image.

Ah well, it looks like Jelly Bean might make an appearance at next week’s Google I/O event after all. We were thinking it might be a tad early, considering the relatively modest distribution of Ice Cream Sandwich (7.1% as of June 1).

And what comes after Jelly Bean? Key Lime Pie, probably.

I wonder whether that sentence ends with "phone" or "device", because you'd think the Nexus 7 would be the first JB device...

We already know the Galaxy Nexus is the latest smartphone from Google, what I want to know is whether that or the Nexus 7 will be the first Android 4.1 device. That Nexus 7 looks like it may well become my next needless toy :p.
