All three of those devices were exactly what we expected Google to announce today at the canceled event in NYC. We also expected a full walk through of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. While they weren’t able to take to the stage to show us the wonders of the new Nexus line of devices, they do have some details out there about it all. We are definitely eager to see all three ne devices in action, but are equally eager to see what Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is bringing to the table. Here are a few of the highlights to wet your appetite.

Gesture Typing is just a new word for Swiping. At least from our point of view. You slide your finger from one letter to the next and it knows what you are typing. While it is nothing new, it is still new to the stock Android keyboard. Those of you that love Swype will now have a similar experience without installing another keyboard.
Multiple User accounts on Tablet
We all saw this one coming too. Google is finally implementing multiple user accounts on tablets. Meaning that you can set up a profile for yourself, you wife, your kids and who ever else needs one. That way they aren’t getting into your apps and games and rearranging the home screen while they use it. This is going to be pretty sweet really. No longer will you come home from work to find you daughter beating all your games before you even had a chance to try. Sadly, this is only going to be available on tablets. I personally think this still has great potential for phones too. Maybe in the next update.
Instant Share to your TV
Again, another feature that other OEM’s have mastered are finding their way to stock Android. If you own a Samsung device you would know this as AllShare Cast. By simply connecting a wireless display adapter to any HDMI-enabled TV, you will be able to share your device’s screen wirelessly to your big screen TV.
