Next Version Of Android After Ice Cream Sandwich Will Be Jelly Bean

This is my next is reporting that the next version of Android after Ice Cream Sandwich will be called Jelly Bean. It's supposed to pack "game-changing stuff" that was originally supposed to be on Ice Cream Sandwich but didn't quite make it in time.

Of course, we're still impatiently waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich so looking even past that is kinda crazy at this point but at least we know the name! I'd have much rather seen Jell-O (probably nixed for copyright issues since they have enough of that) or just jelly (jelly sounds incredibly funny by itself) though.

And if you want to take a look back into history at how far Android has come, these have been the updates to Android so far: Cupcake, doughnut, Eclair, Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich. [TIMN]

    I like the new name. There always seems to be a game-changing release just around the corner so it's hard to know the best time to upgrade. Also, you forgot Froyo.

    Most of the networks forgot froyo I think.

    What would happen when they get to Q (the obvious option here is 'quiche' but aren't they savoury?) and Z.

    Q could be quince paste - that's sweet, Z ummm zucheratti (yes I know my spelling is probably wrong)


    Why is Doughnut the only Android foodstuff version-moniker for which you did not capitalise the initial letter?

    This is outrageous!!! Such blatant and unjustified prejudice I have not seen before. Now, if it had been celery.....that would have been different..'that' would have been quite understandable.

      And why did they totally ignore Froyo (Frozen Yogurt) from the list? Where do I complain? My outrage exceeds my interest in this article.
