Google was expected to unveil its Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at the I/O Conference held the previous week. But the expectations were left unfulfilled. No such electronic device got displayed and everyone was disappointed by this lack of wish-fulfillment. While that may be true, there was a strange incident at a Thai Mobile Expo that pointed to a wholly different story from the standard news.
According to Android Police, the official release was announced to be some time in the blistering heat of the summer months. But already two individuals who happen to be developers have spotted such a device at a Thai show. And they have each taken a photograph of the new device in order to corroborate the evidence pertaining to their finding. While it is still being speculated if the whole thing is a fraudulent scheme meant to delude the public, the fact is that two photographs can’t lie. After all, seeing is enough to warrant belief. The mobile shown in the pictures was a Nexus 4 and it clearly displayed the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean firmware. The exhilarating news spread like wildfire and pretty soon it was on every mobile phone user’s lips.
Still the news is hearsay and sometimes what you view in broad daylight can deceive you. Therefore the authenticity of the pictures is still being questioned in certain quarters. The previous disappointment regarding the newly updated firmware was a blow from which the fans of Google have not yet fully recovered. That is why like a burnt child dreading the fire, they are cautious about accepting even visible proof of the entry of the system in the technology market.
However, even if it was true, there is a bit of a mismatch between expectations and reality. The changes are not all that exciting on this brand new version. In fact, apart from clarity of graphics and a few other revamped features there is little else that is novel in it. Nevertheless you just can’t get some people down! Those who are enthusiastic won’t quit their ecstatic rants. They say they will truly enjoy taking snaps from this system. Meanwhile, Google has yet to give a statement regarding the whole matter. Everyone must show a little patience before the facts are reaffirmed or for that matter denied.
