Android 5.0 - Jelly Bean soon?

According to Digtimes, Google is about to launch Android 5.0! This information was disclosed by Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

Since Microsoft will launch Windows 8 in the third quarter of 2012, Google decided to anticipate the launch of the new operating system Jelly Bean for the second quarter.

There are also some rumors that indicate that Android 5.0 will be optimized for tablets (and also a few new additions to smartphones) and that Google will provide a native dual-boot to operating systems, allowing users to choose between two OS, like Windows 8 and Android 5.0.

Google is trying to convince the companies to adopt this functionality and install Android 5.0 and Windows 8 in the same tablets.

With this strategy, Google hopes to get back into the  netbooks and notebooks market.

It is also known that there is some fear by the manufacturers in adopting Android 5.0, all because of poor performance and problems present in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
