    Here's an interesting find from our friends over at AndroidAuthority. They were perusing their own server logs and found a curious amount of devices using various versions of Jelly Bean that we haven't heard of yet. They spotted Android 4.3, Android 4.3.3 and Android 4.3.1. All of these versions were running on various devices like the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 4, the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. Could some Google employees be using a newer version of Jelly Bean on their devices while browsing content over there? Seems like a distinct possibility. It's also possible these were faked, but it seems like a difficult and strange thing to pull off for almost no reason. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Could Google be preparing a newer version of Jell Bean for launch at Google I/O, and then preparing a later launch of Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie for later in the year? It definitely looks like a possibility now. Thanks for sharing this!

    i dont think it's all that hard to fake them, all it requires is a couple build.prop edits i think? and one or 2 of those logs might have been people trying to "troll" different sites with faked build numbers or they just made the mods for themselves to mess with friends
    like this one
    could possibly be a faked one due to the mismatch, and all the ones other than strictly 4.3 (i.e. the 4.3.1, 4.3.3 4.3.0) could be faked ones as well, especially since they appear to be on non nexus devices

    that said however, the ones on the nexus devices could very well be legitimate, especially since some were traced back to google in california and a 4.3 build number and still jellybean would make sense for the next update, which will most likely be more of bug fix update than one packed with new features. 4.2 introduced a few new things and new issues to work out before they jump into making even more features

    just my $0.02

    How come they are all running mozilla (and 5.0) shouldn't they be running chrome?
