You have a good point, Chad. I wish there were an official port of
Jelly Bean for my tablet. OTOH, I mainly use it for playing around,
not for work, so the old version of Android that it has is "good
enough." Maybe if I had more "bells/whistles" I might use it more.
That being said, some of the apps I want to use won't work on the
version of Android on my tablet, so maybe that's a reason to consider
upgrading to something better, even though I"ve only had this Dell
tablet for a month or so.
