the release of Jelly Bean will not happen until the fall of 2012. He made the statement at MWC 2012 while speaking with the guys at Computerworld. Furthermore, he clarified that the release time frame for Android 5.0 has not been set in stone yet.Word comes from Hiroshi Lockheimer, Vice President of Engineering for Mobile at Google, who hinted that
And by the way, Lockheimer did not mention anything about Android 5.0 being dubbed Jelly Bean, but that is the name that has been thrown around for a while now. Jelly Bean actually seems like a plausible name for Android 5.0. Each Android iteration has been named after a pastry in alphabetical order: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich. Also, the bowl of jelly beans that was spotted at Google's booth at MWC 2012 could also be a clue.
