Google has still not announced the Android 5.0 Jellybean operating system officially. It is expected that the JellyBean version of the Google's OS will be launched in June. If this is to be believed, then the Windows 8 that will release in October will have a tough competition.
Wall Street Journal has stated that devices based on the new Android OS will be available by the end of 2012. However, Google has not commented on this report. Earlier, we have seen that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus might be the first one to get the Jellybean OS. As of now, the latest version of Android is ICS. Still ICS itself is not rolled out to many devices. Only a handful of them have the ICS operating system.
It is expected that Google will announce the JellyBean operating system during the I/O developer conference that will be held in June. The features of this platform are not known but it might have better enterprise security related features, voice assistant feature like Siri in iPhone 4S and Chrome browser integration.
