Those being the brand new multiple user accounts, as well as lockscreen widgets to name a few.

Android 4.2 yet, but if you are, there's a pretty good chance you've encountered some issues with Google Voice. The app hasn't been functioning properly ever since Android 4.2 landed, but thankfully those frustrating days are over (at least until the next version of Android hits). Google pushed out an update for Google Voice today that fixes the app's compatibility issues with Android 4.2, and it's available on the Google Play Store now.
Nexus and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in the world of Android news. Oh and Verizon announced the HTC DROID DNA if anyone noticed. Today Google is dropping all sorts of goodness on the Android Community, and they've just pushed Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to AOSP. They've also pushed the factory images for the Nexus 4, 7 and 10 too.
Samsung Nexus 10 and the LG Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store. Google managed to get a lot of people excited with the announcements of these devices, so if you want one, you better act quick. Both devices come touting some solid specs, so either one would be worth a place in your tech collection.
Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to Nexus owners via an over-the-air update, but if you are impatient, there are ways to get it sooner. The firmware for the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus (so not Verizon's LTE-equipped version) is available for download on Google's servers. The v4.2 ROM for the Nexus 7 is also available.
Jelly Bean out of the box. Earlier tonight we reported the final "shipping version" of 4.2 JB was rolling out to the Nexus 4 and 10, but now multiple reports are stating the GSM Galaxy Nexus is also enjoying the same treatment.
Google, with the official release date of their brand new set of Android devices. Those being the popular LG Nexus 4 smartphone, Samsung Nexus 10 tablet, and of course the wildly popular and already available Nexus 7. Today Google has just confirmed that the final shipping version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is rolling out as we speak. We have a feeling the Nexus 7 will be enjoying the same come tomorrow once it goes on sale.
Nexus 10 tablets might be shipping to retailers around the country already. If you're lucky they might be on shelves in a few local Walmart stores too. The folks from XDA Developers posted up a picture showing the Nexus 10 on sale for $499 at Walmart -- even though the official launch date isn't until the 13th.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus, we have some good news for you. A developer that goes by the Twitter handle @KillDroidHack has managed to grab all of the core apps for Android 4.2 and uploaded them in a nice little zip file that you can flash to your phone and use. This should come in handy if you want to check out the latest stuff right this minute instead of waiting.
Android may not be as big a problem as some would have you believe, but they are still a threat. That's especially true when you're sideloading apps onto your handset, as Google Play's built in security features don't check third-party apps. While Google Play does scan all apps that are uploaded to the store, apps from third-party sources get to skip the security check, potentially allowing for some nasty situations.
