to announce plans for releasing Jelly Bean to its phones released in 2012. The list of phones receiving the update is quite large. That being said, there might be some disappointed individuals with phones released in 2011 who will not be getting some delicious Jelly Beans on their smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy S III owners on the Three network in the UK are getting some awesome news today. They will be able to upgrade to their devices from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean. This means that they will be able to take advantage of the awesome new features of Jelly Bean as soon as they download the new update.
a release regarding its plans for updating many of its devices to Jelly Bean. Owners of some of LG's Optimus devices will get to enjoy the new features of Jelly Bean, some starting as soon as next month. Users with an LG Optimus LTE II will see their phones update sometime in November, with updates for other devices continuing as time goes on.
Onliner, and they offer the clearest views we've seen of the device so far. The Russian site also provides some specs for the device. It says that it features a 4.7-inch screen with a 1280 X 768 resolution. It also sports a quadcore, 1.5gHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. As most of the other reports on the phone have claimed, it sports 2GB of RAM. This report also says that the phone only has 8GB of memory with no expansion possible, which is something we've heard about the device before. This has some potential buyers upset, but it seems as if Google wants to see people move towards storing stuff in the cloud rather than locally on their device. The E960 also has an eight megapixel camera, which makes sense because there is no bulge that would be required for a 13 megapixel camera to fit. The phone has Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 installed. It also is reported to have a fixed battery, which could be a point of contention for users who like swapping batteries. Rumor has it that this device will be officially announced on October 29, and we will keep you posted as anything develops between now and then. [gallery] [timeline] [via SlashGear]

Android distribution reports are available and it looks like Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich installs are slowly on the rise. In fact, between the two, they now make up just over 25% of all Android installs. Of course, 23.7 percent of this comes from Ice Cream Sandwich, so Jelly Bean is still taking up a very small percentage of the market at just 1.8%. The king is still Gingerbread, with an impressive 55.8% of the market. It is down from 57.5% last month, so it seems like more users are moving forward with the new versions of the operating system. The low number of Jelly Bean users is quite surprising, but at least it means that almost three-quarters of all users are on one of the three most recent versions. There are still some users out there running the old versions. In fact, 12.9% of users are still running Froyo on their devices. Hopefully, we see a continued trend of users moving towards the newer versions of Android. This data is collected based on Android devices that accessed its Google Play marketplace during a 14-day period ended October 1. Numbers are always interesting, and it is good to see that more devices are updating to the newer versions. [timeline]
