Last time when Google launched the Honeycomb android 3.0 Operating System they announced that they soon will be releasing a hybrid OS that will bring all the goodness to Tablet Optimized Android OS to mobile phones called the Ice Cream Sandwich.
We haven’t even seen the latest Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android yet, but already Google is working on the next iteration – said to be called Jelly Bean. While we can imagine plenty of current handsets struggling to run the next-gen OS, we’d love to know what features it offers, and just how much of a step up from today’s version of Android it will be.
Android has come a long way over the past two years, with bugs being ironed out and the OS getting more and more stable with each iteration. With manufacturers also adding their own user interfaces over the top, the OS is almost unrecognisable from the software launched on the first G1 Android handset.
The next version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich – is set to launch before the year is out, and will be tailored to both smartphones and tablets. At present, very little is known about the version after that, apart from the rumour that it will be called Jelly Bean.
