It's confirmed! Android 5.0 will be called Jelly Beans

It's been a while since we knew that the next version of Android (After ICS) would be called Jelly Beans. But now, Asus has confirmed it! Speaking to TechRadar, ASUS' Corporate Vice President Benson Lin has said

"Asus is very close to Google, so once they have Android 5.0 I think there will be a high possibility that we will be the first wave to offer the Jelly Bean update."

So the version number 5.0 indeed will be called Jelly Beans.

Also, placed in the middle of Google's private meeting area is a bowl of Jelly Beans!

  1. Seems android 5.0 is going to be an interesting deal, but so soon a new version is going to be a major headache for the developers... Hope no big changes in the APIs :P

  2. I don't think it's going to be a major headache Mohit. Android so far has been backwards compatible with the new APIs. If we were talking about Blackberry, it's a different story :P
