Android 5.0 Jelly Bean – Isn’t It Too Soon Google?Today's Special — By Naveen Vaidhya on April 10, 2012 at 11:37 am
Don’t you think that Google is making haste in developing new Android OSes while the adaptation rate is too slow?
Google’s Android gained pace from its 2.x legacy when the 2.0 Éclair version was announced in late 2009 and 2010 Froyo and Gingerbread was announced name them version 2.2 and 2.3 respectively with Gingerbread being the prominent one with Froyo following its trail. After the Google announced 3.0 Honeycomb OS for tablets and now late 2012 they announced the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
See the pace of the releases of these OSes. With Éclair announced in 2009 and in 2011 came the ICS. In total Google developed 5 versions of OS in just three years, isn’t this too fast? As per to the stats inly 3% of the Android powered devices run on the new ICS OS and now the search giant is punning about the release of Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. There is no official word of the Jelly Bean but this is obvious that after 4.0 its going to 5.0 and the tech giant is surely under developing the new OS.
Now we that biggest rival of Google is Apple when it comes to OS. Apple announced the iOS 5 in October 2011 with 77% of iOS users have already shifted to iOS 5, while Android ICS was also announced somewhere near Christmas time of 2011 (almost the same time when iOS 5 was released). Comparing the ratio of 3% users on $4.0 and 77% on iOS 5, Apple is surely on the winning side and this is why the iOS is more favorable than Android.
Why this is happening?
The answer is pretty much simple, with Android 4.0 being released many months back, most of the best devices like Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note have not yet received the 4.0 update whereas on Apple the iPhone 3GS that was announced in 2009 can run the latest OS that Apple has to offer.
And now that Android 5.0 is on the way, its no doubt that the new OS will be better than the latter but again the same question comes, whether everyone will receive the new OS or they have stand in queue to wait for their turn to come. And now that the new version of Android is going to be better this is going to also change the support of CyanogenMod 9. With this there is even the security measure that is irritably ticking many Android users. But the ICS came with total device encryption that allows encrypting the data of the device that even involves music, apps, downloaded data and many others. With these even third party developers have left making apps for older versions of Android and totally focused on app that are compatible to Gingerbread and ICS.
What’s in store with Android 5.0 Jelly Bean?
The news Google acquiring Motorola is well know by now and once the company gets the Motorola completely, they will make it a full fledged Goggle phone with all possibilities that Google can offer. All the Moto phones will run Android 5.0 or at least 4.0 in them with good hardware credentials of course.
