phone-galaxy-gallery-familyThe Samsung Google Nexus S is said to have received an upgrade to Jelly Bean. According to GSMArena, the update is 114.4MB and brings the build number to JEO03E.

Nexus S is a smartphone device co-developed by Google and Samsung. The device was announced and released in December 2010 running on Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread).
For screen protection, the Nexus spots an Oleophobic coating or rather, a Contour Display with a curved glass screen. The 5MP Camera at the back ensures quality output for multimedia. The phone also has a secondary VGA camera at the front.

phone-galaxy-dTo handle loads of usage, Nexus S is powered with a 1 GHz Cortex-A8, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of Internal storage. This will certainly be capable of handling the upgrade.

As with most Samsung smartphones, the Nexus S does not have a radio. The phone also disappoints for the lack of a memory card slot.

Android 4.1, Jelly Bean is known as the fastest and smoothest platform. It allows for expandable, actionable notifications, has a new look for search and a smarter keyboard.

And as GSMArena say, If you are the impatient sorts and don't want to wait for the update to arrive over the air for your device then you can also download the update from Google's servers and flash it manually. Just make sure you are running a stock ICS ROM and have a custom recovery software such as ClockworkMod installed. And as usual, make sure you know what you are doing or wait for the OTA update.

Here is the direct download link to Google's servers.

Samsung Smart TVs Will Let You Play Angry Birds Without Touching A Thing

First-motion-controlled_1Angry Birds has been around for what seems like forever, topping over 1 billion downloads across all available platforms. But folks continue to come up with new and interesting ways for us to sling birds into poorly built structures with the sole purpose of needless destruction.

Samsung today officially joined that pack by offering Angry Birds on Samsung's Smart TV, but pay no mind to the remote — the whole thing is controlled by gesture.

The idea is that you can aim birds by pulling back the way you would to use a slingshot. You can also activate the birds' "talents" through gesture controls as well, making big black mamma jamma explode or sending yellow triangle bird into a b-line straight for the desired target.
