    [Rumor] Google Could Be Ready to Launch Android 5.0 Jelly Bean This Summer


    DigiTimes, the online purveyor of interesting info from the world of tech just released a highly speculative report regarding Google's next iteration of Android. DigiTimes' record on such things is hit and miss, sometimes they nail the surprising exclusive that turns out to be big news, while other times there wild assertions turn out to be fodder. Still, for something this big it bears reporting on the off chance that this time is the former rather than the later. According to their report, Google may be planning to launch Android 5.0, Jelly Bean, as early as this summer. Supposedly, Google's decision in this matter is motivated by a desire to beat Microsoft's Windows 8 to market.

    This new Android is even further optimized for tablets, and has the unique ability to have dual operating system operation using Android 5.0 or the Google Chrome system, and be able to switch between the two. Here's a quote from the PhoneArena article with some final details,

    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.
    It's hard to know how to feel about this news. Obviously, the initial reaction is to deny it because it seems purely speculative; however, if it turns out to be true, then we are in the unenviable position of conflicting emotions. On the one had, it's always fun to get excited about a new Android OS. On the other hand, it seems like it would be way too soon to see Android 5.0, because by this summer there still won't be very many devices running Ice Cream Sandwich. Share your thoughts on this crazy rumor.

    Yes, it is quite too soon and hard to believe. Only a small percentage of users are out of Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, I kind of doubt Google would actually release it in Summer. Especially when nothing gets launched on the date planned :D Always gets delayed for mysterious reasons. Anyhow, we'll just have to wait and see.
