ASUS Confirms ‘Jelly Bean’ As Codename For Android 5.0
ASUS has always pretty much been on top of Android updates with its range of devices, in fact it was one of the first manufacturers to release the much anticipated ICS update for its new Transformer Prime.
According to ASUS’ Corporate Vice President, Benson Lin, the reason that the company is able to offer its users quick updates to the latest version of Android is due to the company’s relationship with the search engine giant.
In a recent interview with TechRadar, Lin may have inadvertently let slip that the next version of Android will indeed be called Jelly Bean by saying:
“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.”
Again, although Google hasn’t made anything official yet, I think the likelihood of the next version being called Jelly Bean is actually quite high – considering there was also a big bowl of jelly beans at Google’s booth during this year’s Mobile World Congress as well.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long before Google decides to make the name official, along with the exciting new features we can expect.
