As expected, Google made some big announcements during the opening of its annual developer conference yesterday.  First things first: now available for pre-order is the Nexus 7 tablet, a device running the brand new Android 4.1 Operating System, better known as Jelly Bean. The quad-core tablet has a seven-inch screen with a 1280×800 HD display and is available for 199 bucks directly from the Google Play store. Jelly Bean promises to improve performance and includes a new predictive keyboard, better voice search and enhancements to the notification system. It will also come with a feature called Google Now, which provides information based on your personal tastes and current location. Stuck in traffic? Google Now will figure out how you commute to work and give you a faster route. The OS update will also be available on the Galaxy Nexus, Xoom and Nexus S next month.
