Android 4.1 Jelly Bean keyboard available for download on Android 4.0.3 devices

If you own the Amazon Kindle Fire, you’re probably aware that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been ported onto your tablet via a ROM, albeit in beta form. However if you don’t own the Kindle Fire but you’re looking to get in on the Jelly Bean action anyway, you’re sort of in luck as the Jelly Bean built-in keyboard has been extracted and is currently available as a download via the Google Play store. Unfortunately it appears to be available only for devices running Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and higher, so if you’re running on a lower version of Android, you’re out of luck (for now).

While we have yet to have a go at the Jelly Bean keyboard ourselves, it has been reported that while it does look similar to its ICS predecessor, Android 4.1’s built-in keyboard is expected to be much better at prediction and should be very welcome by those who type frequently on their mobile devices. However it should be noted that this port is currently in its beta stages and there are limitations to it, such as English being the only language supported at the moment. However if you’d like to give it go anyway, pop on over to the Google Play Store for the download.
