Android 4.1.1 Rolling out to the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus

Those lucky enough to already have their hands on the Google Nexus 7 are in for a little bit of a treat today. A 12.6 MB over-the-air update has been pushed out, updating Google’s own tablet to Android 4.1.1, build JRO03C.

While there is no official changelog for the Nexus 7 update and the release notes are quite sparse, users upgrading to the latest build will immediately notice the appearance of Google Wallet on their devices. One can only wonder about the real life practicality in using a tablet to purchase an item when a phone would be far less cumbersome. Since Wallet relies on an active Internet connection, and the tablet is not available with a cellular radio, one can only assume that this will get little use on most devices. [As pointed out by Lucian Armasu and Unlawful, Internet connectivity is apparently not required!]

Luckily, that’s not all for the Nexus line. As seen on the Nexus Google+ Page, Jelly Bean is starting to roll out to GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Previously, we wrote about how 4.1 was rolled out to takju devices following the keynote presentation on the first day of Google I/O 2012. Now it looks like yakju devices will be able to get in on the Jelly Bean fun as well. Curiously, my own JRN84D 4.1-laden takju device (courtesy of the aforementioned conference) reports that there are no updates available.

Wondering which Nexus devices will receive Jelly Bean next? According to Google:

If you’ve got a Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ device, you will receive a prompt alerting you to the update over the next several days. Up next for Jelly Bean: all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and of course, Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month.

Eager to get in on the discussion? Head over to the Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus to get your fill!

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
