Google’s Technical Lead fir the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru mentioned in a note earlier today that they will be “We’re releasing Android 4.1.2 to AOSP today, which is a minor update on top of 4.1.1.”
The new update will finally mean that you will be able to use Google’s Nexus 7 in vertical or horizontal views, which has not been a feature up until today:
“”As a note to maintainers of community builds running on Nexus 7: please update to 4.1.2 at the first opportunity. Future variants of the grouper hardware will have a minor change in one of the components (the power management chip) that will not be compatible with 4.1.1. ”
Which is great for anyone who owns the 7 inch tablet, but you will need 30MBs free to download the update.
