    It doesnt just sound great, (cue Tony the Tiger) "they're GREAT!". But no really it runs like a hot stick of butter.

    Yea, most of Jellybean seems to benefit phones, and not Xoom's !!!!
    Yes faster, smoother etc., but where is the substance??

    I must admit to being slightly underwhelmed after the upgrade and wondered what all the fuss was about, but did a factory reset this morning and now the overall experience is much better.
    It really only took 10 minutes or so to set everything up and restore my data from the sdcard and now I know that there are no fragments of the ICS installation in there.
    I notice lots of subtle differences now so I think it was a worthwhile exercise.

    Whilst I mostly enjoy JB I'm noticing that the stock browser keeps suffering graphical glitches in the suggestion drop down box.

    Also google now seems rather random! Yesterday it regularly updated me on weather changes, today not a sausage! (Well apart from offering me directions to a vehicle hire company for some reason)

    Does Jelly Bean still include Google's Movie Studio app? This was on my UK Xoom when it was Honeycomb and it was still present after I GEDified and it updated to ICS OTA.

    The substance was ICS, JB is mostly background stuff to ensure 60FPS and widgets for consumers to engage in the Play Store. Notifications got the biggest overhual and went from the best mobile notification system to even better <-- I really tried for something better.

    Faster smoother was 80% the purpose of JB... imo.
