Earlier this week, when Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it said that the new version of the OS would be available starting mid-July on the following devices: Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom.
Of course, lots of other devices will be updated to Jelly Bean after that.
Samsung has reportedly stated that it would “soon announce which additional devices are eligible for the Jelly Bean update.”
HTC also has news regarding Google’s new version of Android. The company stated the following:
“We are excited about Android Jelly Bean and are planning to support it across a variety of our devices. We are reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule, so please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.”
I assume most handsets that run ICS (or are upgradeable to it) will get Jelly Bean at some point, regardless of their manufacturer.
