    In addition to Android 4.1 (Jellybean), last week’s Google I/O introduced us to a Chrome Browser update, Google Play news and the Project Glass carnival ride. Here’s the lowdown:



    Chrome Browser:


    The official version of Chrome Browser is now in the Google Play Store. You can download it for free. For those already using mobile Chrome, the new version provides much-needed stability and a few performance enhancements. Tablets got some UI adjustments - a good idea considering this will be the Chrome running with Nexus 7 tablet . There was no word on availability of this update for devices running older OS versions than Android 4.0.


    Google Play got quite a bit of Google attention. Here its new angles:


    Google Play Books:


    Play Books was updated to support embedded streaming video and audio in books. This will have lots of useful applications, particularly in the educational environment.  There’s a new UI feature where you can tap the upper-right corner of a page to bookmark it. New settings options allow for auto text-to-speech and the ability to lock downloads to WiFi only. The rest of the updates were improving support for various formats and other stability fixes.


    Google Play Movies:


    Google I/O leftover news – Chrome Browser, Google Play and Project Glass


    Now you can purchase Google Play Movies in addition to renting them. TV shows are also available in the Google Play Store as well. The more Google can offer in the Store, the better they will be able to compete with Apple. Next we’d like to see Google step up to the subscription plate and give the likes of Hulu, Netflix and Amazon some nice competition.


    Google Play Remote Features:


    Uninstalling and updating apps you bought from Google Play can now be managed from a web connection. Just like it’s easier to edit your address book online rather than from your phone, apps need the same kind of management tool. So, maybe it’s time to clean out your app junk pile.


    Project Glass:


    Project Glass is Google’s R&D effort to create an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD) they call Google Glass. Sergey Brin’s Google Glass presentation was fun. Some guys jumped out of an airplane and another ran down the side of a building. The audience got to see the little adventure play out on the big screen. The perspective was cool, but as a passive observer can’t we can get something very similar from video games and 3D movies? The final HMD won’t be ready for consumers until 2014, but attendees of the Google I/O were given the chance to pre-order a prototype pair of the glasses (to be delivered next year) for $1,500 a headset. Maybe we just don’t see the bigger picture for Google Glass yet…

    It only took Android app developer Philippe Hausler 12 hours to load Swords and Soldiers onto the brand-spanking new Google Nexus Q media hub, the first social streaming media player:



    Granted, the Android game isn’t functional yet, but that just might be a new hacking record. Some app gurus are touting the feat as an indicator of the potential of the device.


    Right now the Nexus Q only works with devices running Google's new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. The only available Jelly Bean device there is right now is the Nexus 7 tablet. Of course, Google promises more Jelly Bean products available in the coming months. Google says it the Nexus Q will eventually work with devices running older versions of Android, but with a $299 price tag, Google has to work faster on its compatibility.

     Nexus 7 tablet update


    The Samsung Nexus is a Google based device that has gained much market following and praises.   Goggle is now attempting this coup with the Nexus 7 tablet.   The Google Nexus 7 tablet is still scheduled for its market debut next month, and it’s moved to the top of the rumor pile with a newly released document. A Nexus 7 training document that was apparently sent to third-party retailers confirms the specs that we’ve been hearing about for awhile:


    • 1.3 GHz Tegra 3 processor
    • 1GB RAM
    • 8GB of storage (with a 16GB option)
    • Android, Jelly Bean (4.1)
    • 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera
    • NFC
    • 7″ IPS display with a 178 degree viewing angle and 1,280 by 800 resolution

    It looks like the tablet will have a black slate with an engraved Nexus logo on the reverse. Apparently, ASUS is the Nexus 7 manufacturer of choice.


    The Nexus 7 also comes with a super-cheap $199 price tag. A version with 16GB of storage will be available for $249.

    Here comes Google’s new Nexus tablet


    Google is finally ready to show what it can do with its own brand of tablet. It’s called the “Nexus 7. ” We hear we’ll get a first look at it at next week’s Google I/O developer conference.


    DigiTimes just reported a number of details about the Nexus 7 slate that seem to ring true. The DigiTimes source in the tablet’s supply chain claimed that Google’s next major Android release - Jelly Bean - would come in the second quarter. They also reported that Nexus tablet shipments would begin in June in preparation for a July launch.


    Microsoft’s unveiling of its “Surface” tablet seems to be the start of a major effort by software wizards to become hardware masters. Google seems to be right behind. Google also has a few Android partners that help on the device building side. Some are developing their own software expertise. Just when we thought the only entertainment was going to be Apple against the rest of the world, it seems the natives have gotten restless.


    Google I/O begins on June 27th.
