Jelly Bean Next on Google’s Desert List
People may not think of “jelly bean” as a good tasting desert anymore as rumors say that it may be the name of Google’s next Android update after Ice Cream Sandwich.
Tech site “This Is My Next” cited a trusted source as saying that “Jelly Bean” will continue Google’s tradition of naming Android builds after sweet treats in alphabetical order.
“We’re hearing from another well-regarded source that Jelly Bean is in the running for the name, but that the choice hasn’t yet been finalized by Google; for what it’s worth, the pickings are fairly slim for desserts with ‘J’ names, so Jelly Bean seems like a solid choice,” it said.
According to the site, there will be some major architectural, design and functional changes since the release of Google’s last update, Ice Cream Sandwich.
Also, it said that with rumors of the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Nexus Prime from Samsung hitting fever pitch lately, it seems likely that an announcement is imminent.
