Jelly Bean


So here's the deal: An ASUS VP dropped the following quote to TechRadar:

"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."

Dunno if ASUS is any closer to Google than any of the other manufacturers, but it did get one of the first Ice Cream Sandwich updates out the door, so more power to it. But it's entirely possible that this VP also was just repeating what everyone else has been saying anyway -- that the next verison of Android will be Android 5.0, and that it'll be nicknamed "Jelly Bean."

But, wait! Jelly Bean's still not even official, and today The Verge says Key Lime Pie will follow up. No word on when, or -- more important -- what either JB or KLP will actually be.

An official announcement from Google, neither of these is not. But let's go ahead and start guessing what L will be, shall we? Licorice? That's obvious enough, no?
