Reports are indicating that Google could preparing to unveil Android 5.0 Jelly Bean in the third quarter of the year. According to rumors, Google wants to shoot two birds with the release of new versions. First, Jelly Bean will integrate the two systems developed in parallel, Android and Chrome, and secondly to try to counter future Windows 8 hybrids for notebooks.
The best feature of Android 5.0 is that this will be the OS which will support net books too and it will also support dual boot, something which is realistic, not the concept here. Google making the Android OS faster and perhaps lighter, so that we don’t need dual-core and quad-core processors in our phone’s to make Android run fast and smooth.
But if it’s true, it doesn’t seem like a good move, Ice Cream Sandwich is currently found on between 2% and 3% of Android smartphones according to DigiTimes, though Google’s own online version tracker puts the figure at just 1.6%.
What do you think? Is the next version of Android arriving in Q3 too soon?
