Glad to hear your initial report on using Jelly bean (and that is is 
better in a11y terms, but lets face it - that wouldn't be hard ;-).

I can't get Jelly bean yet (if ever) on my HTC Sensation (am upgrading 
to Ice Cream Sandwich as we speak) and the Nexus 7 isn't available in 
Ireland just yet but I will pick one up when it comes out here.

Please do keep us posted on your experiences, am very interested in the 
'Wow thats great' - or 'Wow that totally crap' kind.

Cheers

Josh
