Is Android 5.0 Jelly Bean coming this summer? Google's upcoming Android update will be available in the summer, say sources.
Android 5.0 (or 4.5) 'Jelly Bean' will not target smartphones however, but will be be built with dual-boot functionality for Chrome OS tablets and netbooks.

More importantly, the OS would allow users to dual-boot Android on Windows 8 machines, including the ability to hot-swap without a reboot.

Users could use Android for better battery life, and switch to Windows for more robust features.

The OS is expected to hit in June.

That made me drool a little...

5.0??? heck i only have 2.3.5 i know some phones have 3.0 and tablet and such are lucky to get 4.0. they have alot of work to do to get to where they want to be with their OS. they need to work the glitches out of the current format before worrying about constantly putting out new updates and such.... just my opinion.

Android 5.0 upgrade coming in June or so might cause me to hold off buying a new quad core phone unless I have some assurance that the device is up-gradable. I bought LGs G2x May, 2011. It is not up-gradable to 4.0. I dont want a dinosaur 6 months after I buy the latest and greatest device...only to discover im in a 2 yr contractual lock-down.
