It hasn’t been that long since the release of Android 4.0 ICS and we are already hearing the news about Android 5.0 jelly bean being released this fall.
This year at MWC Google had introduced some jelly beans as a teaser for the people at what they can expect from Google in the upcoming months.
Now it has been rumored that Asus is working very closely with Google in order to become the first company ever to feature and release the Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. Most likely they are planning to release it on a tablet.
Since jelly bean had been announced by Google there has been many rumors floating around regarding that Google is planning to compete with Windows 8 with jelly bean.
If its true then we can expect to find jelly bean powering our laptop and desktop PC’s and it will also allow us to access the android goodies directly from the android market place.
Is Jelly Bean Designed To Compete With Upcoming Windows 8?
If its true that Google and Asus have been working together to bring out a device that runs jelly bean then I would certainly like to see some Cortex A15 chips powering the tablets. But by following the chip manufacturing news we can see that Samsung is the only company that will be able to produce the cortex A15 chips this year most probably by the end of the summer.
It is highly unlikely that Samsung will license their latest chip to other companies even if Google asks them to do it after all which firm wants to lease out their new and next gen marketing to other firms.
Well then what would be the next awesome thing that we can expect to see with the release of the jelly beans? Well we can expect to see dual core krait processor clocked at 2.5 GHz which would certainly be impressive in terms of horsepower.
Even a quad core processor which is clocked at 1.5 GHz would be sufficient to run Jelly Bean smoothly and efficiently. But whatever you want the next gen device to be powered with Google would want their next gen tablet ready before their I/O conference which will be held in June.
After looking at all the floating rumors one can say very confidently that it MAKES SENSE for Google to work with Asus for their next iteration of android partly because of the hybrid form of their tablets which gives you the best of both worlds.
You get amazing typing capabilities through the keyboard dock and also touch capabilities through the pad when it is not connected to the dock. Let’s not forget about the battery life which is doubled or even tripled when connected to a dock.
Google has been thoroughly optimizing Jelly Bean for tablet and laptop which even further strengthens the rumor that Google is truly intending to compete with Windows 8 in an attempt to unify all the platforms with one OS.
Well no matter how much windows 8 is optimized there will be problems for it to run in the tablets whereas android won’t have such issues and it will run like a breeze on tablets.
Well this June would be game changing month because Jelly Bean would finally be unveiled and what kind of enhancements or revolution it brings to the android world remains to be seen.
