The latest Jelly Bean edition, mainly Android 4.2, comes with a very nice new feature: it provides support for multiple users (tablet only).

Google, company that needs no introductions, recently unveiled three new Nexus mobile devices: the Nexus 4 smartphone developed alongside LG, the Nexus 7 slim and light device that fits perfectly in your hand, and the Nexus 10 powerful tablet. All of these new devices, which will go on sale on 11/13 in the Google Play Store, are powered by Android 4.2, the latest edition of the Jelly Bean mobile operating system.

“A Nexus device is much more than simply a phone or tablet. It’s your connection to the best of Google—all of your stuff and entertainment, everywhere you go with no hassle. Now you have three new Nexus devices, a new improved version of Jelly Bean and more entertainment than ever before—all available on Google Play. The playground is open,” said Andy Rubin, SVP, Mobile and Digital Content.

Among the new features Android 4.2 has to offer is support for multiple users. With the new operating system an entire family could use the same Android-powered tablet without interfering with one another. Each user gets to have his own homescreen, background, widgets, apps and games. They even get to have their own individual high scores in games. And best of all is the fact that Google made it so the transition from one account to another is effortless: to switch, you do not have to log in an out.

Please note that the multiple users feature is only available for Android-powered tablets, like the aforementioned Nexus 10, the tablet with the highest resolution on the planet - 10.055" display at 2560-by-1600 (300ppi), more than 4 million pixels. The tablet will go on sale in the Play Store on 11/13 in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan. The tablet is priced as follows: $399 for the 16GB model and $499 for the 32GB model.
