    Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Will Definitely NOT Come Before Fall


    A few weeks back we shared a crazy rumor that Google could be readying Android 5.0/Jelly Bean for an early summer release. It seemed like a highly unlikely scenario, although there were some fairly logical arguments made in favor of it. Ultimately though, this almost silly speculation has been "put to bed" so to speak. Hiroshi Lockheimer, Vice President of Engineering for Mobile at Google, recently intimated that the release of Jelly Bean will not happen until the fall of 2012 (or later). He further elaborated that the release time for Android 5.0 has not been set in stone yet. Here's a more direct quote from him,

    "After Android 4 comes 5, and we haven't announced the timing yet, which we're still sorting out. There's a lot of engineering work behind it still, and there's also just the question of how to time it. In general, the Android release cadence is one major release a year with some maintenance releases that are substantial still. Having said that, we're flexible. The [timing of releases] is not what drives us, but what does is innovation and offering users a great experience."
    So, there you have it from someone "in the know". This is actually good news. It means that Google has no intention of rushing Android to market, and will instead keep things at a moderate pace. It also means that we could see Android 5.0 this fall.

    Makes sense.

    Letting Ice Cream Sandwich "settle in" for a while and being used on more and more devices across the Android world seems like a prudent approach before introducing a new release version.

    My hope is that we get a full year on ICS with incremental improvements as with Honeycomb. I am not any sort of fan of rushed OS releases just for the sake of it.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Your opinion matters. But should you disagree - please try not to be disagreeable

    Rumors on new releases of ANYTHING is really dumb. ICS is still fresh, I dislike it when my device's OS feels old when I hear rumors. ESPECIALLY when they are delayed well after they said they would release it. Enjoy what you have, people.

    Pretty ridiculous really to start talking about Android 5.0 when most phones / tablets haven't yet been updated to version 4.0!

    There isn't too many reasons I'd praise Apple however I do like the fact that once a new ios is released; all devices that are compatible can upgrade

    (And before anyone says it, I do know the reasons / issues behind this due to the variety of Android hardware, however I definitely feel this is one of Android's weaknesses! ICS was released November (plus surely Google released versions even earlier to major manufacturers?) and for example Samsung's flagship phone, the Galaxy S2 still hasn't been updated!)

    That's because it's a closed operating system with reams of restrictions. There is a major downside to that concept as well.

    I own the Galaxy S2 by the way! And I agree that like them or not Apple sure does a better job when it comes to OS releases! Tomorrow is March 1st and I'm still on Android 2.3.6 on my phone!
