Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has barely rolled out the majority of handsets but it seems that talk of the next build, Android 5.0, has already begun. Now based on Google’s naming schemes in the past, it is safe to assume that the next generation of the Android platform will be named after a dessert which starts with the letter “J”. Many have speculated that it will be called Jelly Bean, but unfortunately the name has yet to be confirmed, although Google might have dropped a not-so-subtle hint at MWC.
The folks over at The Verge managed to get themselves into Google’s private meeting area set up at MWC, and right smack in the middle of the room was a table with a large bowl of jelly beans in them. Unfortunately when they pressed Google’s Andy Rubin, he declined to confirm anything but instead offered to let them have as many jelly beans as they liked. Given the number of snacks/sweets that Google could have chosen over jelly beans, we have to wonder about its significance. They do look delicious though.
