Google Rumoured To Announce 'User Accounts' For Android Tablets

The Next Web:

Speaking of the OS itself, we have some details on that too. It has been confirmed that as part of Android 4.2, Google will introduce “Content in the center,” which will allow users to access Play Store content from a widget and “Tablet Sharing” which will suit families and enterprise users, providing them with a simple and easy to switch between several users on a tablet, each with their own email and apps.

Think Windows user switching, but now on Android.

I’ve been weighing up the benefits and disadvantages of this feature for a long time. I came to the conclusion that tablets are supposed to be personal and intimate, but I’m still not sure if I think that just because the iPad has indoctrinated me.
