Android 5.0 aka Jelly Bean rumored for 2Q 2012


Google is looking to release the next iteration of Android sometime in second quarter of 2012, reports Digitimes. The website claims information from supply chain makers who say that Android 5.0 aka Jelly Bean will be released soon and will be optimized more for tablets.

Furthermore, the new Android OS will adopt elements from Google’s Chrome OS to suit a device with dual OS. Google will offer manufacturers an option to integrate Android 5.0 alone or go with a configuration supporting Windows 8 that will allow booting into Android without restarting the computer.

The site also says Ice Cream Sandwich OS’ lower than expected result is another reason for the faster rollout of Android 5.0.
