Nexus 7 boot animation on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
by Lim Pei Hao
01 July 2012 – The Nexus devices are known for its interesting boot animation, including the newly announced Nexus 7 tablet.
The one on the left was the boot animation for the Nexus 7 initially, with 3D floating Google Play icons floating upwards and also gives you the impression of the “X” of Nexus.
Google later sends out an OTA update and replaced it with a single glowing “X” as shown in the Nexus 7 on the right. Perhaps Google is trying to reinforce its motto of simplicity as well as emphasizing the Nexus branding.
Anyhow, we do like both of the boot animations and slightly more on the latest one, as it offers a clean and simple look unlike the boot animation in Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and the first boot animation Google introduced in Jelly Bean.
