The Android OS, Google’s mobile operating system, is gradually gaining the dominance in the global Smartphone and tablet market. The internet search giant, Google, is currently activating roughly 850,000 new Android gadgets every day, worldwide. The Android OS versions of Google have been unveiled in alphabetical order with dessert based monikers: C – Cupcake, D – Donut, E – Eclair, F – Froyo, G – Gingerbread, H – Honeycomb and I – Ice Cream Sandwich. The next version of the Android OS is going to bring the alphabet J with a moniker Android 5.0 Jelly Bean.
Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the current OS version, is already packed with a vast amount of fresh functionality and features obtained from the combination of Gingerbread and Honeycomb versions. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphones and tablets just beginning to get a widespread rollout and the rumor mill has revolved to Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. The interface of the Android 5.0 Jelly Bean will be much better than the existing best Android 4.0 ICS, according to Bob Freking, designer of a concept of the Jelly Bean interface.
Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Features
It is said that Android Jelly Bean has been designed to push Google to get control over tablet market and to maintain a throttlehold on the smartphone sector. It is highly speculated that the Android 5.0 Jelly Bean will come featured with dual boot-ability and in-built Google Chrome browser app as the standard internet offering with super-fast browsing speed. Furthermore, Jelly Bean will come featured with an in-built potential file manager along with enhanced user adaptable power management options. Android 5.0 Jelly Bean is also said to get the support for netbooks. However, all of such speculations do not make any sense before any official news regarding Android 5.0 Jelly Bean come out.
Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Release Date
Google is widely anticipated to replace its current Android 4.0 ICS OS with Android 5.0 Jelly Bean as early as Q2 (June) this year. It is expected that the Jelly Bean will be showcased at Google’s I/O conference this June, like earlier Android releases. As the Android ICS was demoed on a Motorola tablet at Google’s I/O conference last year, the Jelly Bean is likely to be demoed in 2012 conference that is to be held between 27th and 29th June at San Francisco’s Moscone Centre. Hence, the 2012 I/O conference will probably give people their first chance to see what the Google has packed in Jelly Bean.
Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Handsets and Tablets
While Google hasn’t officially said anything about latest Android 5.0 Jelly Bean, Android supporter and hardware manufacturer Asus has apparently confirmed its plans to be the first wave to offer the ICS follow-on. There are also a number of speculations that the Google is planning to introduce its first own branded tablet with the Jelly Bean. As Samsung had launched past two Android softwares via Nexus handsets, it has been widely speculated that once again Samsung will be given responsibility for the next-generation Android OS on the handset front. However, it is not yet confirmed exactly which producers will introduce the Android 5.0 devices when the OS launches later in the year.
Though unconfirmed itself currently, it is highly anticipated that Android 5.0 will be subsequently replaced by another dessert named OS ‘Key Lime Pie’.
