Android is one of the most famous mobile operating system that has been ever developed. It’s like Google has struck gold with android and over time since the first introduction of Android OS it has evolved so much that now out life isn’t complete with android.
Android has been suffering with fragmentation which is a major setback to many of the app developers who are out there. Fragmentation is main cause which makes many well-known developers from stepping into the android ecosystem.
But with the release of the latest version Android 5.0 Jelly Bean Google is aiming at minimizing fragmentation and creating a single OS across all its device ranging from the Desktop to the tablets so that developers can develop one app which needs only optimization to work in the various devices.
Also this will help Google to directly compete against Microsoft who has released Windows 8 an attempt at unifying the mobile and desktop environment.
With android 5.0 Google is attempting to create a Single UI across all the devices which range from mobile, tablet and desktop. Ok you can say that the UI of android 4.0 works across phone and tablet but for the desktop the UI experience can be further improved with the addition of different feature.
You can take the example of Microsoft who have created a single UI across tablets and PC but this has led to major disappointment because the UI cannot be used efficiently in the desktop mode and is very poor.
Android 5.0 Jelly Bean UI Add Ons
Now according to the latest rumor that Google are attempting to create something new for the latest release of Android 5.0 Jelly bean which will be announced in June at their I/O conference. Now according to rumor Google will produce different version of the UI with a phone mode, tablet mode and a desktop mode.
Each mode of the UI will be optimized for the device it was designed for. Google an redesign the complete UI from ground up which runs on the core android that doesn’t resemble each other at the highest levels but at the core all the devices are running Android.
The advantage of this is that when you dock your phone to the PC you can get the option of which UI you should run on the device.
Now this are all rumors but if you look at the practicality of the situation then what Google is most likely to do is combine the chrome UI with the android experience for the PC and give the user the option to select which UI to run.
As for the tablets or phones they can improve the Android 4.0 UI that is already present to make it more flexible and easy to use with the desktop.
So what do you think Google will most likely do with their Android 5.0 which is going to be unveiled soon in June I/O? Will they make the same mistake as Microsoft did with their Windows 8 UI or create something new and revolutionary that will further enhance the android experience? Do let us know what you think.
