i know 4.1 is likely, but the point that Jellybean may come with other major stuff may just make it 5.0, and since early rumors are suggesting it to be a netbook OS with Chrome, it could be another major release... and from what I'm feeling, it's Android's 5th Anniversary on November 5, and they will release 5 Nexus phones running 5.0 I guess... still, all of it's a guess.

i disliked your comment because i don't think Gallito is so bothersome. he's not stupid or anything, he just enjoys to troll and he doesn't make it into some big, out-of-hand, stressful flame war. xD

i agree that Jelly Bean will merely be an incremental update, much like Gingerbread was to Froyo and in all honesty we really don't need anything more. like some people have mentioned we need to get more handsets up to ICS and make that the norm before we start getting into any more major revisions that'll require more time and resources to make available.

nah, gallito and I are fine. unlike taco, gallito trolls to get a rise out of people and laugh. Taco really is as dumb as he makes himself out to be.

Im still waiting for that return email,btw.

can you imagine the pandemonium on the threads if they drop JB as 5.0? people will pull their hair out and our idiot iTrolls will have a field day.
I highly doubt there is enough chances to call it 5.0, i mean they just changed everything and its not in their history to do such a thing. They've only ever changed the first number when it was a huge revision.

Hmm! If you can produce the equivilent of the newly revised Samsung Galaxy Note 10, with Jelly Bean, for $200 or less, I just might start shopping. At that cost these toys become almost reasonable. Now, if it also runs (WELL) MS Office 15 or later, I won't even feel guilty about $200.00. Just make sure it has removable storage for the Office documents, as I will not be putting any of my serious work on the "cloud."

What's bugging me
- Only few percentage of phones are ICS
- It's too early
- Google devices are developer's reference design. Releasing a Quad Core for Jelly Bean mean some manufacturers will follow the reference design.
- Quad Core $200 Tablet is good but for smartphone it's a different story.
Being so power hungry and so fast is annoying.

Should we stop progress just so you are not behind with your single or dual core? I say bring it on, I'm still happy with my Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Xoom

Who need ICS when you have Go Launcher!

*facepalm* Ice Cream Sandwich is an operating system. Go Launcher is a launcher. Learn the difference.

no, it copys the LOOK of ICS,
it can not copy its features as they are OS features, not pretty pictures and icons.

With go, I can customize my widget and icon sizes, it makes my icons look more readable and clear, and I have the sliding system bar. Point being... What am I missing out from for ICS that is a game changer? Face unlock, a better calender, and photo editing stuff, or different looking menus? Is ICS even something for me to get excited about anymore?

multi-core optimization, a MUCH better browser, apps only accessible with ICS like Google Chrome and the all new Spotify app for instance, setting caps on your mobile data, uhhhh, what else?

scrollable widgets
built in power controls to optimize your battery ( i get 2 days on a 2 year old SGS1)
tons and tons of optimizations under the hood

honestly, its just a better experience over all. everything just works better. There is more to tweak if you like that sort of thing, and even if you dont it works flawlessly out of the box.

Wow.. Fantastic. 5% of devices running ICS and we see this. Google should really learn from MS. ICS, the 7th version of Android, is still not as smooth as WP 7.5 which happens to be the 2nd version of WP and top of it, it runs on out-dated hardware. It was my mistake to think that an Android phone with 1GHz and 512MB RAM was a WORTHY upgrade from from my iPhone 3GS. Only if Nokia 710 was available at that time.......

Maybe and just MAYBE JellyBean is actually what Honeycomb was for tablets. I honestly think tablets should have more horsepower and more advance software if they are ever going to be more and more like laptop pcs. You can only do so much with even a 5.3 inch display on a cell phone but with a 8-10 inch tablet, it opens up way more doors.

you guys are silly..basically don't want to see a new, better android version!
it's like whining, oh man haven't even upgraded my Vista to windows 7 and they are already releasing an 8!
there is absolutely nothing wrong if they showcase JB in this thing, it will be completely backward compatible.
bring on the next android!

Why are some people so excited about JB? Has anyone seen it or even know what's in it? What if it sucks? Is it going to required a quad core just to get decent performance? What if its the Vista of Android?

Jelly Bean or not. A quad core tablet at roughly $200... It's about time for me to get a tablet.
