Google announces Android 4.2 (still Jelly Bean)

While some of us are worrying about losing power because of Hurricane Sandy, others are checking blogs to see what's next for mobile handsets. I'm doing a bit of both while I still have power.

Google just announced an update to their Android OS. It's now Android 4.2 and it's still being called Jelly Bean. In my desk, I still have an old Android smartphone that's running Android 2.3 and I'm still waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich (but I'm not holding my breath).

At this point, it doesn't look like Android 4.2 will offer any tremendous enhancements for those who are still on 4.1. Photo Sphere, a smarter keyboard, wait - profiles for different users? Now, you've caught my attention - not for my phone, but for my tablet. We're all looking for easier ways to change settings when we hand our tablet to our kids.
