Google’s Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)


Google’s Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)

The Android mobile OS was developed by a small startup company which was acquired by Google in 2005. It was first introduced in November 2007. One of the key differentiating factors for Android is that it is an open platform independent of hardware manufacturers, and is offered by a number of device manufacturers such as HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG, and even QMobile (in Pakistan). Given that it is a manufacturer independent OS, it comes as no surprise that Android is also popular and widely-used Os in the world. According to a Gartner report published in August 2012, Android currently enjoys a worldwide market share of 64.1 per cent; Unassailable in the near future given that iOS ranks number two with 18.8 per cent.

 

User experience and interface:The Android applications menu, let’s admit it, is not very different from the iOS, However, Android offers far more flexibility and convenience with multiple screens and app widgets to place on its home screens for quick access.

Applications: Android. Features ;”<Google Play”, previously known as the Android Marketplace, which carries more than 600,000 apps for you to choose from. A reality, one that Apple may not like, is that most iOS apps now have an equally good Android version available on Google Play. Again, these include apps for enhancing productivity, business use, religion and entertainment.

Language: Given its open platform, developers can add various languages on their own. Android today supports over 57 languages (including different dialects of some languages).

 

Business use: Android is tightly coupled with all Google Apps, including Google Docs, which is a great office productivity tool. In addition, a number of other apps are available for viewing and creating PDF files, presentations, scheduling, managing meetings, keeping track of expenses and other things.

 

Multitasking: Multitasking is one of the key advantages Android has over iOS, which allows you to jump between tasks and programs seamlessly and get back to what you were doing later on.

 

Technicalities: Android is an open-platform Linux-based mobile OS and offers true multitasking capabilities, coupled with Google services and web apps such as Google Search, Gmail, Picasa, Plus, Play and many more. The OS is vulnerable to malware and viruses, so you need to have some app/suite installed to protect your device from behaving weird. It comes bundled with one of Google’s best services, Google Maps, and also has a pretty decent voice assistant feature, allowing not only reading but also accepting text input via voice commands, Advanced voice features were not available until the latest version, Jelly Bean, was rolled out. Android exists in variations based on customizations made by device manufacturers to optimize the OS for use on a particular brand/make. The standard version is generally loaded on Google “Nexus” devices that Google

launches and promotes on its own. The last two Nexus devices have been manufactured by Samsung.
