It’s time to get handy with Google’s latest mobile operating system Android 4.1 Jelly Beans. Here’s the announcement post (via The Next Web) from Jean-Baptiste Queru, Technical Lead, Android Open Source Project:

We’re releasing Android 4.1 in AOSP today.

The name of the tagged release is android-4.1.1_r1.

The name of the development branch is jb-dev.

We recommend that you create new clients, even if you’re working in the master branch. It’ll make your clients smaller and faster to sync.

Proprietary binaries are available for Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus. Nexus S and Xoom will follow.

JBQ, on behalf of the entire Android team at Google.

The company recently at its Google’s I/O 2012 event had announced Android 4.1 featuring Offline Voice Typing, means now you no longer require web connection to accept voice input, launching in US English first and promise to add other languages “soon.”
