Android Jelly Bean code shows multiple user accounts coming

One of the problems with modern tablets, which means the iPad and Android variants, is that you are stuck with a single account. If anyone uses your tablet they just load it up to your settings and your personal information. It appears that Google wants to change this by allowing multiple user accounts on the same device.

Hidden inside the Android Jelly Bean code are some clues that indicate that Google is headed in this direction so that you can safely let someone else use your tablet without the worry of them reading your email, calendar and other private documents.

I wont go over all the details here, but some of the basics include the ability for apps to have different settings for different users which means that if you have Gmail on your login, then someone else could have their login contain their own email details.
