    that article hurt my brain. Basically all those features exist on JB 4.1

    I think the MAIN feature of 4.2 is that you can have multiple users on an account. I like that, and it's very useful for a tablet. Probably near useless for a phone though.

    I think it's an incremental upgrade.

    They got it right by still calling it Jelly Bean, it is relevant enough to jump to 4.2 but not as much to waste a name on it. I can genuinely be pleased with my 4.1 as of now.

    panoramic pictures work find even in ICS, not sure you need multiple accounts on a phone, nothing really new in 4.2 that makes me care about getting it

    only thing I would be curious about is the updates to google voice and google now.

    Other than that, I really don't have any need for the new features.
