Android 4.3 gets official

Finally, Google has made its next-generation Android OS official. True to previous rumors, Google's next step is Android 4.3, promising to be a much sweeter Jelly Bean.

The upgrade to 4.2 to 4.3 brings in an ample bunch of features including restricted profile, support for Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low-Energy), and the latest 3D graphics via OpenGL ES 3.0. With restricted profiles, users are given full control of their devices while limiting access to some apps, should the user wish to limit them. This also means parental controls. Now, parents can prevent their children from accessing explicit content over the Internet.

With support for Bluetooth Smart, users can now connect their Android devices to Bluetooth Smart sensors. Such is the case with fitness devices that use Bluetooth Smart technology. Android 4.3 also accelerates 3D graphics with OpenGL ES 3.0. OpenGL is a cross-language multi-platform Application programming interface (API) for rendering 2D and 3D computer graphics which brings photorealism to a whole new level in the games you're playing.

Android 4.3 also brings a new autocomplete feature in the dial pad, which flashes names or numbers of your contacts on your phone when dialing, saving you time in the process. Google is now rolling out Android 4.3 to Nexus devices.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
