Haha, Jelly bean is a funny name for a OS...
I think there is better ways to give names to a OS, like IOS 5 and bada 2.0. I like using numbers instead of names.

You know android for example in 2.2 is called "android 2.2" you can check any android phone and you will never se the word froyo. Now google decided to give android updates nick names for their just like many linux distribution. its just some neat little nic for those who follow tech to talk about version history in another way that just number coding.

The only thing about google that's a bit is how they do version history. Now when we see 3.0 we seem to understand how they do version history a bit. Now if it's going to be a big change them we migh see 4.0 on the next version just like honeycomb

I know they have version numbers too, but it seems google is mostly concentrating on using nicknames like jelly bean.

Most thing about google it's that they try to make things "petable" and by that I mean people have other ways to think about the same thing. It's like instead of search it we say "google it" its how their mascot gets turned into a jedi or gets a jetpack set or behaves human like or becomes all rusty and damaged. People like what they can pet or toss around it's like saying a custom rom creator its called a chef and the Half baked expresión meaning something is not fully functional or not as intended. It's fun for people who follow android programming and versions to think about what nick might be fitting for the next version(at least for me). Also it keeps in secret the most important thing, How big the change are going to be. They can talk about ics without telling by the version number what should we expect.

yearly updates? please...Google releases an update every 10 seconds. hopefully they can stray away from the fragmentation & make one platform for every Android device. The days seem to be fading for those pathetic low end Androids. I'm interested to see what the Prime has to offer.
