Here we go again! Could Android 5.0 Be Released in Fall 2012?

"Digitimes... has a report that Google is readying Android 5.0, codenamed "Jelly Bean", for a release as soon as Q2 2012, or April 2012"

Android Jelly Bean: Could Android 5.0 Be Released in Fall 2012?

While I love having the newest software, these quick version updates are really confusing to new users, and just make the fragmentation criticism more valid.

Heck, I've seen "key lime pie" mentioned somewhere. Personally I'm looking forward to "lollipop" and "milkshake"

Re: Here we go again! Could Android 5.0 Be Released in Fall 2012?

Yes 100% jellybean is coming late this fall, Google pretty much said they have moved from 2 times a year to once a year release schedule.

Google's release policy is pretty straight forward. New beta version released in late fall, phones get updated by June with final version. And cycle repeats.

This is same cycle that goes on for ALL software. Take Mozilla FireFox for example.

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases

FireFox 12 will hit final on April 24th, in that time FireFox 13 will hit beta and FireFox 14 will hit Alpha(AURORA) and FireFox 15 will hit nightly. And this process keeps repeating. This is standard software release cycles.

The thing that seems to get to people is they are too used to not seeing this process behind the scenes and just get to see the final and that is it. But Android is open source so like most open source software the process is more transparent.

If you want to compare it to say iOS releases, look at it this way. June iOS6 will come out and your device will get ICS. Next June iOS7 will come out and your device will have Jellybean and etc. Whats eating people is they know it "exists" so they want it now and I don't blame them but if you look at it prospectively its the same release cycle, just more transparent.

There is no fragmentation, its a myth.

Some models haven't even had the ICS update yet. Don't get me wrong, I love that they're constantly updating the OS. I agree that it makes Android more fragmented than ever with each new release, though.
