Nexus will come with new features with this update and various developments. It was reported over the air by the XDA Developer Forum members about this latest up gradation by Google with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
Google took a wise decision by rolling out its Nexus 4 with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean though there are many Android partners who differ in their opinions. The plus point is that the company can introduce updates quickly now and without the support of wireless carriers which come in the way. It fixed the People app in a matter of few weeks which otherwise though wireless network mode would need evaluation, testing and possible bloatware. This is clearly a smart step taken and perfect example by the company.
