Perennial rumor site DigiTimes is at again, this time claiming that Google will introduce Android 5.0 Jelly Bean in the second quarter of this year. Yes, that would be in a matter of months. They claim Taiwanese supply chain makers have floated this information.
Android 5.0 will be further optimized for tablet PCs, while Google will also integrate its Chrome system functions to push dual-operating system designs. Brand vendors can either choose to adopt only Android 5.0 or add Android 5.0 to Windows 8 devices with the ability to switch between the two OSes without the need to shut down the computer.
We just heard yesterday that Motorola will update a handful of devices to Android 4.0 in Q3 2012. Sounds crazy to think that Android 5.0 would come out well before any devices even see Android 4.0. With any DigiTimes report, a grain of salt is always necessary.
