Is Android 5.0 Jelly Bean ready for a Summer launch?
Optimized for Android tablets, Jelly Bean would also include the Google Chrome system to allow for dual operating system functionality. Manufacturers will have the option of installing only Android 5.0 into a product, or add the latter to Windows 8 devices. Users would be able to switch platforms without shutting down the device (Hey, we warned you!). The report also notes that Google would use Android 5.0 as a way to enter the notebook and netbook markets.
According to DigiTimes, since Ice Cream Sandwich did not live up to expectations, some of Google's downstream partners are wary about Android 5.0. While the vast majority of Android users are weeks or months away from Android 4.0, it might seem strange to even be thinking about it now. But with Google I/O slowly coming into view (June 27-29th), it won't be too long until we start hearing all about Jelly Bean.
