Neither am I. It IS only 9 AM EDT, so we have some time to... well... keep checking for updates
These threads were always so much fun in the Incredible forums. Who remembers that guy that claimed he was from Verizon?
source is going to drop soon after Google I/O i would assume. then i could care less as to when it officially comes. I will be running it within the week thanks to the great developers around here.
(in the style of The Price is Right, where the last guy thinks everyone is too low, and bids $1 higher than the current high bidder, rendering their bid all but worthless) "November 10th, Bob."
I have a very good source deep in the inner circle at Google who tells me Google has promised to release Jelly Bean on time and on schedule if we can keep a thread on topic for 10 days.
You could singlehandedly assure that by locking it for the required length of time
Apple has had the same OS since inception. Google has had what, 5or 6?
Apple updates theirs leaving its core process the same or simmilar so most apps work fine.
Developers can't keep up with Google's nonsensical practice of dropping a new OS when most apps are still 2 OS's behind.
I am not so sure that your statement is correct. While it makes logical sense, investigation has shown it to be the opposite.
Android vs iOS – Which Is Really More Stable? New Data May Surprise You
The OP asked specifically about The next proposed major release of Android, version 5.x code named Jelly Bean and speculation as to when the Gnex might get it. While it's not hard to go off on a tangent, let's at least pretend like were trying to keep it on topic?
If you want to continue the discussion about other OS implementations etc. feel free to start a thread in the Android Lounge, otherwise further off topic discussion will be moved or deleted and the thread closed.
Sorry to be such a <insert appropriate adjective>, but ... hey, you can't call me that!
We should see our first android 5 unit by black friday.
Within 2 years google has plans that most of the android 2 units will be gone.
ICS and Jellybean I believe will be on the same design app wise just like the transition from vista to 7. Minor issues but nothing big. After dealing with a nexus device though im hoping the next one next year will be a quad and I will get it. After a custom rom ill run the clock speed way down to where i get the power of my dual without the power consumption
Half of me says that actually sounds like a valid date.
Then again i go back to last year when we saw ICS first. ..but yeah Black Friday seems like it would be a good time. But that to me is only if they do officially acknowledge it at Google I/O.
If they do announce it i would assume another statue will go up at Google HQ.
Im also hoping for a direct sale of the LTE model.
I asked this question as a bit of a joke. There has been so much speculation about ICS 4.0.4/4.0.5 that I figured we might as well speculate about Jelly Bean.
As others have mentioned, if and when it comes, it will probably come for the GSM version first, unless it leaks for Verizon first.
My guess is that the first JB phone will be released in time for Christmas, but the GNex wont get it until March 7, 2013.
For all we know, "Jelly Bean" might be 4.1.0 and not a full version increase.
I don't know if many of you were in the massive hype thread before the G Nex came out. At that time i was following an individual on twitter that had a test build of ICS running on a test VZW G Nex..... it was version 4.1.0. Some of you probably know who i'm talking about. It probably doesn't mean much.
Anyways i got to thinking last night. If i were google ....i would release JB or something significant about JB in the Month of October.....which is probably when the new Fruit Phone will surface officially.
It's bad marketing strategy to base your release schedule based on your competition. If you focus on the other guy too much you never get to think for yourself. That's one thing Apple does very well ... no matter how hard a company wants to drive the market, they follow their own schedule.
Keeping in that style then I would like to bid "today" (or the $1 bet that says I think you all over-bid)
hmmmm very good point.
yep, definitely enjoyed reading all that.
I feel pretty comfortable that we'll get some JB action one way or another.
The Incredible forums were a blast to say the least.
My speculation......two weeks!
