Makes me want to buy a Galaxy Nexus from the play store just so I can get jelly bean.

In the meantime, here are some links where you can enjoy some of the goodies from jelly bean. I got most of them working on ICS

Jelly Bean 4.1 wallpapers


Jelly Bean 4.1 boot animation


Jelly Bean 4.1 apps


Note - some have to be pushed to system/apps.

Enjoy grin

Google finally released the latest version of its Maps app to Google Play today. Originally announced at a Google Maps event in early June, this update allows users to select and save a region of a map from more than 150 countries for offline use. In the new Maps version, users can save up to six large metro areas for offline use.

To utilize this, simply bring up the area of choice and select "Make available offline" from the menu to verify what you'd like to save. Maps then estimates the file size a user would be taking on and asks for confirmation before saving it. Google even notes that if you have GPS enabled on the device, "the blue dot will still work without a data connection so you know where you are, and if your device has a compass, you can orient yourself without 3G or WiFi connectivity."

The new Maps update for Android also includes an improved Compass Mode for Street View. Users will need Android 3.0 or higher, a gyroscope sensor, and version 1.8.1 of Street View on Google Maps to utilize this function.

EDIT
how to sync hotmail in your Android devices.

First thing first your device must running Froyo and above because Microsoft has activated Exchange ActiveSync for Hotmail from there.

It also syncs up your Windows Live Contacts and Calendar with the phone.

First, you put in your email address and password, then you hit "manual setup" (not "next"wink, then choose "Exchange". From there, you'll see the following...

Domain\Username: Clear out and put in your full hotmail address
Password: if not pre-filled, obviously put in your hotmail password
Server: m.hotmail.com
Check "Use Secure Connection (SSL)"
"accept all SSL certificates" can uncheck

After all the setup complete HOLA! You got your hotmail sync with your android phone wink

eh It's okay bros, you would think jelly bean would bring something new to the table but it's similar to the Galaxy Nexus boot animation.

Nothing really spectacular.

moreover, u have listed budget fones. most of us dont use dem, and would not recommend them. so we dont now how they perform. next thing we will see is you complaining that android is wack.

buy a nokia palasa to make calls and an ipod touch or psp to game and play music. chikena

Still crap from Google and several generations behind Nokia maps. Imagine my fury when i found out that you STILL can't navigate without a data connection!!

Do you actually NEED me to tell you this? It's common sense!

I've never understood why people carry this fanboyism on their heads. Google doesn't pay me, neither does Apple or Microsoft. We work damn hard for this money so we have to spend it on the best available...and the more choices the better.

Maybe someone tried to unlock your phone severally unknown to you.Try unlock with the Gmail acct you used to setup your phone.

Talking about "NOW"
Anyone used the GOOGLE NOW?
Will it react accurately to people like us with our thick Nigerian accent?
I'm anxiously waiting for this jellybean 4.1 feature on my phone!
Imagine the wonderful voice telling you stuff like :
shortest route to ur house, telling you about the deals in the shop around?
The future is really here! grin
