Google is working on the release of a new flavor of its Android operating system, one that should arrive on devices as version 5 Jelly Bean, the latest reports on the matter suggest.
The new OS version would bring along optimizations for use on tablet PCs, the same as we reported back in December.
Recently, it was said to arrive with support for Windows 8 dual-boot, but it seems that this was nothing more than simple wishful thinking.
Android 5 is now said to be en-route to devices with a desktop mode that will enable easy switching from mobile to desktop modes, and support for lapdocks such as those available for Motorola’s ATRIX smartphone.
This is expected to be a native feature to the Android OS, and not a simple application loaded on it. Confirmation on the matter has yet to emerge, and specific on this should emerge soon, maybe before Google’s I/O conference in June.
