Ouya Android-based console to ship with Jelly Bean OS


It's been revealed that the Android-based Ouya video game console will be shipping with the Android Jelly Bean operating system.

Apparently the announcement was made over on the Ouya website;
Im happy to announce OUYA will run on Android Jelly Bean, the newest version of the Android operating system.

Were making the jump from the old version, Ice Cream Sandwich, to ensure that were running on the most up-to-date software available. You asked if it could be done, we looked into it, and we made it happen.
An announcement was also made on the system's status;
Were still going full-steam ahead. Weve been refining OUYAs hardware design (cosmetics, mechanicals, electricals, thermals etc.)

Weve spent most of this time in the design phase, as getting it right up front saves us a lot of redesign and iteration later. Weve had some of the best engineers and designers take a look at every design element and fine tune it.
The website also made mention that the dev kits for the console for would also be shipping shortly.
