Well, that took long enough. Sprint recently announced that it is finally deploying Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to owners of the Nexus S 4G. The update was officially released yesterday, Sept. 6, although owners are now starting to be alerted to download the new operating system. We’ve already covered Jelly Bean extensively, but owners can expect a “butter” smooth user interface, new expandable notifications, Android Beam for transferring files using Bluetooth, offline voice dictation, high-res Google+ photos, the amazing Google Now voice search engine and gapless playback of audio files.
If you use Flash a lot you might be turned off to know that the update will officially discontinue Flash support on the Nexus S 4G. As the web moves more and more toward the HTML5 standard, however, this really isn’t that big of a deal. A bit of content may still work, Sprint said, but it could exhibit “unpredictable behavior” since the player isn’t officially supported by Jelly Bean. Adobe has recommended that Android 4.1 users uninstall the application entirely.
Jelly Bean rocks, so you should definitely go grab the update as soon as possible.
