Android 4.2 already running on Google Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus and on other unseen devices


Android 4.2 jelly Bean, the next minor release of Android may just be around the corner but we’re already seeing its user agents appearing on several websites traffic logs. It seems that Google is already gearing up its latest Nexus devices to the Android lineage. It also makes a lot of sense since as Nexus devices, they should be among the first to be receiving the Android 4.2 update.

The Motorola Occam which was named after the Occam’s Razor principle will supposedly be a product from the RAZR series but will come with a Nexus branding along with a possible design change. The device could be a standard Razor device, either the Razr M or Razr HD!

Another device, the Manta, runs Android 4.2 and is believed to be a tablet due to the lack of the ‘mobile’ name in the UA string. Manta is short name for a manta-ray which fits in perfectly as a name code for a future Motorola XOOM tablet  given that Stingray was the Wi-Fi version of the tablet and Wingray was the variant for the tablet that uses the Verizon data network. On the other hand, the Nexus 7 had a code name of grouper, so this could be anything from a larger 10 inch Google Nexus tablet, to a Motorola Nexus tablet.
