I'm an Android dev who's been on iOS for 3 months since my Motorola Atrix crapped out and work gave me an iPhone. Just got a used Galaxy Nexus and it feels GOOD to be back and GREAT to be on Jelly Bean!
I'm hopefully making the jump to Android in the near future (more specifically, one I can get a Nexus 4 :D), and I have a few questions. If you don't want to hear my mobile background, you can just skip to the last set of questions. Thanks!
When is a Nexus not a Nexus? When you buy it from Verizon, evidently. It’s long been a gripe of Verizon Nexus owners that their pride and joy often receives the latest and greatest Android update months after the GSM variant.
It has been a good week for hackers who want to experiment with their Android powered devices. Earlier this week Samsung released source code for several devices, like the Galaxy S III Mini, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note II, and their Galaxy Tab devices.
Back in July, we reported that we should all expect Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to hit the Samsung Galaxy S III sometime in Q4. It looks like Samsung is very well on that track as a leaked version of a TouchWiz based Jelly Bean ROM (XADLG4) has been spotted running on a Galaxy S III (i9300).
