Android 4.1 Jellybean features

What did you expect Google to do when in the space of less than a month, Apple came up with ios 6 and Microsoft revealed Windows phone 8- surely an upgrade to ICS probably from 4.0 to 5.0.

Microsoft Surface Tablet

  It takes a lot of effort to build a product capable of taking its stand against the I-pad 3 and Microsoft has revealed that it has a tablet which is capable of doing this. In an press event this Monday, Microsoft gave more than mere glimpses of devices which are full-fledged tablet but are also capable of doing the job of a notebook. The two devices are known as Microsoft surface and are extremely identical in looks yet run on two different versions of Windows 8(yes, windows 8!). One of these run on Windows RT version of Windows 8 while other runs on Windows 8 pro. The pro version tablet sports a lot more features while RT model is created to put a little less strain on the pockets of the consumers. So, what's so unique in it? Isn't it just like the ASUS TF300 Transformer pad which has an optional keyboard dock? Well it surely isn't!
