The Eighth Major Release Of Android To Be Named 'Jelly Bean'

Once again we bring some fine news and some poor news, both courtesy of our friends at This Is My Next.

First, the fine news. The eighth major release of Android after Ice Cream Sandwich will be named 'Jelly Bean'. Considering Google's tradition of naming Android Operating System (OS) versions after sweets in an alphabetical order, this isn't really a gigantic surprise, although we are always interested to know which sweet it would be. The version number for it is still unknown, then again, so is the one for Ice Cream Sandwich.

Now the poor news. TIMN is also reporting that the 'game changing stuff' that Ice Cream Sandwich was supposed to bring has now been pushed back to Jelly Bean. So it seems all you will acquire with ICS will be a couple of changes here and there along with a recent theme (remember this?). Then again, this is mostly what Gingerbread was as well.

We hope Google doesn't continue to push the fine stuff back or else we will start to wonder if there really is any fine stuff coming our way at all.
