Jelly Bean is to ICS what Honeycomb was to Gingerbread

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Sources familiar with the matter claim


The Nexus 7, if that ends up as the retail name of Google’s first tablet, will appear at the Google I/O conference in some six days from now, or June 27 to be precise.

Many reports indicate that Nvidia’s Tegra 3 is the chip of choice and the tablet should end up with a $199 price tag. We have reported several times that it comes with Android Jelly Bean but so far we have failed to find out whether Jelly Bean is Android 4.1 or 5.0 as some suggested.

However, we have managed to find out that Jelly Bean is tablet oriented update and that Google now wants to shift focus on entry-level to mid-range tablet market, as Amazon has proven that there is a lot of interest and millions of customers who want an Android tablet for peanuts.
 
When Jelly Bean will appear in other tablets or phones remains to be seen, but we would not be surprised to see it running on some Asus tablets that got Android 4.0 back in January.

However, it is still unclear just how tablet-centric Jelly Bean really is. Google made it very clear that Android 4.0 was designed to replace both Gingerbread and Honeycomb and offer a single platform for tablets and smartphones, which is a bit puzzling. It is possible that the next Android iteration will be a bit more tablet oriented, but it is highly unlikely that it will be tablet-exclusive like Honeycomb.
