Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile and Digital Content, Andy Rubin, announcing that the OS is receiving over 850,000 activations per day which represents a rise of over 250 percent since last year. It has to be said that these are pretty impressive statistics considering there is only one device currently being sold which comes pre-installed with the latest Android 4.0 OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. Even more so, when you consider that only approximately one percent of Android devices in existence run Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, even though only one handset is currently sold with Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean might launch.
According to rumors, Google wants to shoot two birds with the release of new versions. First, Jelly Bean will integrate the two systems developed in parallel, Android and Chrome, and secondly to try to counter future Windows 8. In addition, Android 5.0 Jelly Bean will be dedicated for tablets and notebooks.
The system could bring the possibility of dual-boot. So manufacturers can include both tablets Android 5.0 and Windows 8. Windows 8 is expected to be a very good system, optimized for gadgets, and so Google hopes to eliminate the competition home.
The report claims that Android 4.0 was a “failure,” though to date only one phone and a handful of tablets have officially gotten an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. Manufacturers are hard at work building their custom UI skins atop of Android 4.0 so they can release the update to their devices in Q2 and Q3. By the end of 2012, we’ll see a majority of devices in the wild just starting to run Android 4.0, and if Google actually releases Android 5.0 in Q2
The best feature of Android 5.0 is that this will be the OS which will support net books too and it will also support dual boot, something which is realistic, not the concept here. Coming to the design, its more often the same as that of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Face Unlock. This design brings a new notification bar which is more useful which replaces the recent apps button
In-built Chrome Support :
There is support for Chrome Bookmark sync service in Android 4.0 too however the faster browser courtesy Google- Google Chrome is still not on Android devices. So now the next version should be a mobile version Google Chrome with constant on-screen tabs along with bookmark bar.
File Manager :
Though some good manufacturers are now providing File Managers in stock Rom but it will be better if Google itself adds this app in the OS Android 5.0 itself.
Google designed standard keyboard in the Android OS itself. The new high quality keyboard should make typing easier than ever with voice to text that is unmatched by any operating system.
Timely Upgrades :
Devices still have Froyo and we now have Android 4.0 has been announced and will be available soon. Ice Cream Sandwich should be available soon so that manufacturers and Google itself can move forward to design Android Jelly Bean.
Faster Operating System :
Google making the Android OS faster and perhaps lighter, so that we don’t need dual-core and quad-core processors in our phone’s to make Android run fast and smooth. Android is pushing the envelope of mobile technology unlike any other mobile operating system in the world.
