Ice Cream Sandwich only has a single percent of market share, but Google seems to be on the verge of releasing its successor. Latest rumors have it that Android's next release - 5.0 Jelly Bean - will be unveiled in the second quarter of this year.
According to the often reliable DigiTimes, who quote Taiwan-based supply chain makers, Android 5.0 Jelly Bean will bring further optimizations for larger screen devices - tablets and netbook computers.
One of the key features of the upcoming Android release will be its ability to dual-boot Chrome OS. The cloud-based platform still struggles to make an impact and Google is obviously planning on using the wildly popular Android to change that.
Dual-booting will also make Android 5.0 Jelly Bean much easier to market with computer makers. Given the popularity of the Asus Transformer Prime, we guess there might be a niche for ultra-portable computers with super long battery life and good performance, even if they don't run a regular desktop OS.

It wud tentatively be unveiled in Q2....that means that even if my phone wud get it, it wud be around end of year. Btw i didnt understand the logic behind 2 quick releases! Either they could have postponed the release of 4, or they can hold back for 5.

Frankly speaking it is all rumors right now. whether it would be a major update like ICS or a minor update like Froyo or Gingerbread. Also... It is not going to be a quick release. Google had clearly stated that they were aiming for one major update every year. ICS was released in October/November last year... Jelly Bean could be released a month or two early but it is likely to be the only major Android update this year. The question is... Whether it would be a 4.x release or a 5.x release. :confused: If it is a 5.x release, I wonder if Chrome developers have challenged Android developers to catch up with their versioning :confused:
