Among the many Android manufacturer’s out there, ASUS has a good reputation for offering quick software updates for its devices, with the recent Transformer Prime being one of the first to get the Ice Cream Sandwich update. According to ASUS’ Corporate Vice President Benson Lin, this is due to the good relationship between his company and Google.
But while he was boasting about his relationship with Google, Lin also let go of a tiny bit of information regarding the next version of Android, which as the rumors often told us, will be named Jelly Bean.
Speaking to TechRadar, Lin said:
“Asus is very close to Google, so once they have Android 5.0 I think there will be a high possibility that we will be the first wave to offer the Jelly Bean update.”
This, along with the bowl of jelly beans at Google’s booth at MWC makes it clear that the next version of Android will in fact be called Jelly Bean.
