Hiroshi Lockheimer, vice president of engineering for mobile at Google made a few comments to Computer World here at Mobile World Congress and stated that a fall release is more likely.
After Android 4 comes 5, and we haven’t announced the timing yet, which we’re still sorting out,” Lockheimer said. “There’s a lot of engineering work behind it still, and there’s also just the question of how to time it.”
Lockheimer added, “In general, the Android release cadence is one major release a year with some maintenance releases that are substantial still.”
The chances we see Android 5.0 Jelly Bean late Summer or early fall are still possible and hopefully we learn more later tonight.
