Karbonn plans to launch a tablet powered by the next version of Android operating system Jelly Bean, reports said quoting a spokesperson of the company.

The tablet is likely to hit the Indian markets by September this year and would be priced around Rs 11,000, the spokesperson added.

Google had recently unveiled a 7-inch tablet called Nexus Seven. The Nexus Seven will run the next version of Google Inc.'s Android operating system, called Jelly Bean.

At the recent Google I/O 2012 conference in California, Google announced the next version of its Android operating system, Android v4.1 Jelly Bean. The number 4.1 and not 5.0 might indicate Jelly Bean as not a revolutionary update but it still offers a number of key features. As per the Android.com, 'Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0, and introduces a new Google search experience on Android.'

The first few devices to receive the Jelly Bean update in mid-July will be Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and Motorola Xoom tablet. For the rest of the devices, users will have to wait for the manufacturer to roll out the update.
