Android 5.0 is coming soon!

Most mobile manufacturers haven't even started to send out updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and we reached the news that Google may come with Android 5.0, Jellybean, this summer.

Now you should probably take the rumors with a grain of salt, since they seem to come from sources within the manufacturing industry. There seems to be plenty of leaks that claim to know everything about everything. But even if Android 5.0 is not presented in June, there are some interesting details.

One of the changes in Android 5.0, which will be known as Jellybean, is that Google integrated its operating system, Chrome OS as dual-boot. This feature will be available for surf boards and laptops.

For users this means you can choose to boot with either Android or Chrome OS. In time, Google will probably try to merge the two systems to make one, ultimate, versatile, and unique OS.

Chrome OS has not got any major success, despite many column kilometers written about this effort. It is based fundamentally on a slimmed down Linux that boots directly into their browser Chrome. The idea is that you should only work on the web, so you install any software on your computer or store files on it - instead it's web applications and storage in the cloud that apply.

Android 4.0 has not been a great success. Several manufacturers have announced that it is going on with updates for their newer smartphones, allowing users to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, but so far it seems Android 4.0 ICS only run at about 1 percent of Android devices. Most runs Android 2.3.x Gingerbread.

How will Android 5.0 run on PCs?

According to a source, (SlashGear) we also see computers that have both Android 5.0 and Windows 8 installed, and you can switch between operating systems without having to restart the computer. From a user perspective it is difficult to see any great benefit in this. Why should ordinary people be interested to switch between operating systems?

If we look at some historical facts Android 2.3.x is the version that is most popular for smartphones, while Android 3.x is for tablets. With Android 4.0 hit you combine these two systems to make a joint that works on all devices. With Android 5.0, Google is planning to target the PC market.

I will report back as my Sources have more information.
My next blog will be about my new PC, it's up and running!
