Asus to be the first one to the table with Jelly Bean?

Asus to be the first one to the table with Jelly Bean?

There was a time when ICS was a trending topic, and now it seems it’s being replaced by Jelly Bean. Android 5.0 is expected to be announced in Q2 (hopefully at Google I/O) and believe it or not, this update could be what pushes Android into the spotlight. It’s also worth noting that Google confirmed it will be out this fall. The actual announcement is still far away, but Android OEMs are already starting to prep for it. HTC spilled the beans, admitting that they are in the race for the next Nexus smartphone, which will likely be the first to run Jelly Bean.

Asus is also ready for Jelly Bean, as Asus Corporate Vice President Benson Lin told TechRadar:

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.

The original Asus Transformer was the first to receive Honeycomb OTA, and the Transformer Prime was the first to receive Android 4.0, so it wouldn’t be surprising if they will be the first one to offer the latest Android version. I really can’t wait for the first glimpse of Jelly Bean, and it’s expected that we will see the sweet stuff at the Google I/O event this summer. More on this as it develops.

Anyone looking forward to Android 5.0 a.k.a Jelly Bean? Tell us in the comments below!
