Android 5.0 Jelly Bean coming in Q2

Written by Peter Scott



Expect updates in 2016


Google is reportedly planning to launch Android 5.0 Jelly Bean in the second quarter 2012, which is nothing short of amusing at this point.

Google and numerous vendors are still struggling to offer ICS updates for their devices, so we can’t say were are too impressed and we don’t believe Jelly Bean should replace ICS anytime soon, mainly because ICS has yet to replace Gingerbread.

Most Android phones still run Gingerbread, an Android version introduced in late 2010. Even brand new phones are that are more than capable of running ICS are still stuck with Gingerbread and at this point mentioning the pace of ICS updates is a pretty good way to annoy Android users, especially if you have an iPhone or Mango device in your pocket.

In any case Android 5.0 should integrate elements of Google’s Chrome OS and Digitimes claims vendors will have a choice of using Android alongside Windows 8 in a dual-boot configuration, of course if Windows 8 is still around by the time users get Jelly Bean updates.
