PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's definitely a few months away from being released, but Google has plans for the next mobile Android operating system on the table. It will be called "Jelly Bean", which follows the alphabetic naming monikers previous such as Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich. The version will likely be 'Android 5.0', according to a comment made by Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google VP of engineering, who stated "After Android 4 comes 5, and we haven’t announced the timing yet, which we’re still sorting out. There’s a lot of engineering work behind it still, and there’s also just the question of how to time it"

If it comes out later this year, that means most devices that are lucky enough to get it will probably have it by the end of 2013 ;)

Nightlies are up. 3 months from initial release isn't bad.

Cyanogenmod should probably be the benchmark rather than hardware makers. These roms are more stable and provide more features/less bloat than any official rom.

cm7.1 turned my htc hero into an actual smart phone, instead of a slow touch phone.
