Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preview: First look

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preview: First look - read the full textGoogle used its I/O 2012 conference in San Francisco to unveil the latest release of Android. Carrying the version number 4.1, the new Android Jelly Bean is supposed to come as more of a polish to Ice Cream Sandwich, than a major game changer. Don’t think for a second though...

Google took a long time to release it and manufacturers are taking even longer to provide updates as a result and are applying pressure on Google.

Google even hint at this in the JB launch video, saying about its refinements - "We started down this path with ICS but didn't go far enough"... because they couldn't else they would have.

If JB addresses the many issues and improves performance as advertised it will gain wide support and overtake GB. Just look at how slowly GB was rolling out until 2.3.3. Also all devices that can support ICS can support JB.

Question is will 4.1.1 be good enough in first release and will manufactures honor their 18 month committment to provide updates?

Am happy for JellyBean Update but not super excited after reading the specs.
Very few improvements which can be done even better by any local Developer.
Somethings missing.

not sure why half the comments on here are for iphone? but personally i cant wait for this update. as long as google have addressed the signal loss problem on the galaxy nexus, i dont really care what jelly bean can and cant do. pretty happy that the galaxy nexus will be one of the first devices to get jelly bean.

No mass-storage mode (some files don't show up in MTP mode)
Will JellyBean Update clear this bug?

I have Galaxy Nexus, ICS does not opens in Ubuntu & Windows XP when connected to PC via USB.
If I update to JellyBean, will this be solved?
