I don't expect Samsung will release it for SGS II.

I doubt JB will be worth at all... ICS except few changes like icons ect. is worse than GB...

HTML 5 video is big FAIL.
There is no real fullscreen - Flash is the way.
YouTube tried HTML 5 and was shouted about this stupid idea :P

I can't wait for custom ROM based on Jelly Bean. I love the new notification bar and its parallel processing.

Flash is becoming obsolete. Adobe has accepted html5 is going to replace it and is ceasing support for it soon (though its pushing devs to Adobe AIR platform).

And the video play back is very good. Try you tube opt in and look for a no-ads video to test it, better than flash imo.

God, I hope we get 4.1 because Ive missed offline voice recog for years. And the other goodies look cool

GNex HSPA for $349 on Playstore, add shipping and taxes. I'm thinking about getting one myself.

Why do you all think we won't get this for our phones? I'll be really disappointed if we don't get it. Samsung has had access to Jelly Bean for some time now (according to Google), and since it's a rather small update and well within 18 Months of our Galaxy S2's update span, we should really get it.

I just have one question: will Samsung upgrade our devices? 4.1 sounds cool, seems smoother, otherwise Google woudn't release this.

Well, that's the question in the room, and we're all waiting for the answer.

One thing that *might* be an indication that we get 4.1:

1. Samsung still hasn't released 4.0.4 for our devices, even though the differences between 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 are not that huge...they could've done this very quickly IMO.
2. Samsung probably had early access to Jelly Bean, presumably for about 2-3 months. That means they knew right after upgrading our phones to ICS that a bigger update was coming.

Upgrading to 4.0.4. would be pretty pointless knowing that a bigger update is about to be released, so just MAYBE they'll forget about 4.0.4. and focus on 4.1. instead
