A lot of people who were going to sell iPad are now seriously reconsidering. They want to shift to Android-based tablet PCs after the new Jelly Bean was released. This newest version of the Android was released just six months after the release of the 4.0 version called Ice Cream Sandwich. Many would say that Jelly Bean is a nicer version of Ice Cream Sandwich. This should be a good thing, because these nicer features make Jelly Bean a more user-friendly platform especially when your mobile device is a tablet PC.
The new additions to Jelly Bean make it worth yearning for. Google has clearly learned its lesson and made its software more receptive to what its users need. Google has been effective in retooling Android to be more responsive to its users, unlike its other products that have either not been that successful or just plain tanked, like Zune and Google +. People who have tried using Jelly Bean report that the device they are using feels more responsive and snappier especially when using the programs. The webpages in Chrome load almost instantly, there are no lags when swiping your fingers when viewing pictures and voice search is easier to use. Tablet users who are heavy web surfers may want to sell iPad and look for Jelly Bean on the Google Nexus 7.
There are other additions to Jelly Bean that are worth mentioning. One is the offline maps that you can access without the need of an Internet connection. Yes, you can actually access Google Maps (something that allegedly will not be available with the iOS 6) offline with devices that run on Jelly Bean. This is very useful when you are always on trips and on the go.
In connection with the offline maps, Google Now is another nifty search tool that Google was able to refine. It tells you what’s going on in and around the area that you are searching for. This social media organizer app can be seen as another attempt of Google to enter the social network industry, something the company has not been too successful with using Google +.
Entertainment is also one aspect that Google focused on to enhance the Jelly Bean. Google Play has repositioned itself to provide total entertainment, which means you can rent movies, buy books and magazines and purchase music aside from the thousands of apps you can download. The two things people have not really appreciated about the Play Store is that the stores are actually separate from one another. So, there’s an App Market (Play Store), and a separate market for books (Google Books), another separate market for music, and yet another one for videos. Moreover, people outside of the US have limited access to these markets. Maybe Google will open up the markets internationally, or perhaps make these segmented markets integrated under one roof.
But as of now, you might be willing to sell iPad since a lot of people are singing more praises than criticism with this new offering from Google.
