android412Well, there has been no word on just when the Android 4.2 release will happen nor what will it entail, but at the very least, we do know that Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is well on its way – arriving first on the Asus-manufactured Google Nexus 7 tablet, as well as on the AOSP (Android Open Source Project). Google’s chief release engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru made this announcement concerning the new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, where it will come with a tiny number of bugfixes as well as a couple of new features to boot.

One of the most glaring new feature for Nexus 7 owners would be to allow them to use the stock launcher in landscape mode, while most of the other fixes are behind the scenes – which have been touted to improve “performance and stability and fixes bugs.” A tiny bit of code was dedicated for compatibility for a different power management chip found in newer Nexus 7 units that hit the market.
