Asus has pretty much confirmed that the next edition of the Android mobile platform would be codenamed Jelly Bean.
This has been much speculated and it is now more or less confirmed. Google of course has not said anything about it.
Asus further indicated that they might be one of the first companies to get the nod from Google to launch a Jelly Bean powered product. A company representative 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.
