Whenever a new version of Android is announced, everyone is curious whether or not their device will end up getting the update. While it's usually assumed that the latest flagship devices will receive this sort of update, HTC has issued a statement removing all doubt:

We know HTC fans are excited to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android. At this point in time, we can confirm that we have plans to upgrade our HTC One X, HTC One XL and HTC One S to Jelly Bean.

Good news for Nexus S owners – your OTA update to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean is ready and at least one user has reported it rolling out to his i9023 already.

The 114MB update, which brings the Nexus S' build up to JRO03E, is also available to download directly from Google's server for users with either the i9023 or i9020T hardware variants. For those wondering, this update shouldn't wipe data during installation.

Leave it to Comcast to be ahead of the curve on keeping up to date with new technology*. The Comcast subsidiary Xfinity has just updated its TV Player app to be compatible with Android 4.1, with special emphasis on supporting the Nexus 7. The app is technically compatible, though the release notes say that the next version of the app will include a UI designed specifically for the 7" form factor.

Yesterday, Cyanogen himself stopped by XDA to drop some preview builds for CM10 for some of US variants of the Galaxy S III. Today, the rest of the world gets in on the action, as TeamHacksung member XpLoDWilD offers up a preview build for the international Galaxy S III (i9300). As with the previous release, this thing is packed to the brim with warnings, but when has that stopped you?

Google recently decided to make my life a lot easier by releasing the changelog for Jelly Bean. Cool!

While, of course, I take issue with its thoroughness, it also wasn't all that accurate when it was first published. It's since been corrected, but the internet never forgets. Check out this Google listing:

Yeah... There isn't actually a ringtone editor in Jelly Bean. Google seems to agree, because, after the initial posting, the mention of the editor was completely removed from the changelog.

An awesome little Jelly Bean tip came across my desk today. Direct from a Googler, no less!

In the middle of a rousing discussion on G+ about the uniformity of Jelly Bean's new default app dialog (GTKA article forthcoming), Adam Powell, an Android framework engineer, clued us in to the following Jelly Bean protip:

You know the app pickers in Jelly Bean? These things:

They've been given a makeover in JB.

CyanogenMod 10 is still cooking, and heck, CM9 isn't even fully baked for all devices yet. That hasn't stopped Steve Kondik, aka the guy who puts the Cyanogen in CyanogenMod, from posting preview builds of CM10 over on XDA for the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S III variants. Plus, a third preview build being posted for the Sprint version by another developer. Keep in mind, of course, that "preview build" translates into "absolutely nothing is guaranteed to work." It is exciting, nonetheless.

If you bought a pre-LTE Evo phone in the last year and you've been feeling left out in the cold, worry not. Sprint and HTC are in the process of bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to your device. If your device happens to be an Evo 3D or Evo Design, that is. The older flagship Evo and this year's midrange phone are slated to reach Android 4.0 sometime in August.

Yes, we know that once again, it's not Jelly Bean.

In a post to the Nexus Google+ page just minutes ago, it was revealed that the official rollout of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the Galaxy Nexus is beginning now (just after its addition to AOSP), starting with HSPA+ connected Galaxy Nexus Devices. Users of Galaxy Nexus devices carrying the Yakju and Takju software variants should expect to receive an OTA prompt some time within the "next several days."

The post also revealed that the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus won't be alone in receiving an official Jelly Bean update.
