Along with the 3 new Nexus devices announced a few days ago, Google also introduced a new flavor of Jelly Bean, the Android 4.2. Previously rumored to take on a new name – Key Lime Pie – Google has decided to stick with the Jelly Bean and introduced improvements and new features including a revamped camera experience, a new form of typing that takes messaging to a whole new level, and much more.
