    Apparently, some folks have been able to take a peak at the Alpha build for Android 4.2, and discovered some interesting things. It appears that Google may be beefing up security in the newest version of Android. Here's a quote with a brief summary of these security enhancements,

    It's important to note that these features may not show up in the final build, but could be experimental for the future. Still, it's awesome to see that Google is pushing forward to make Android more secure down the line. Now, if we could just get the carriers/OEMs to update more quickly...

    I biggest thing about 4.2 will be a completed version of the 4.1 app encryption allowing developers to make uncrackable apps, which is great.
