With the Google I/O conference literally round the corner, Google may have accidently spilled the beans about their next Android platform (no pun intended).
Google have managed to leak some information about their next platform on the Google Play Store. Users who tried to purchase an unlocked Galaxy Nexus from the Google Play Store found the description of the device to have ‘the first phone with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.’
There was no further information about the new platform but we can safely assume that the next update will be called ‘Jelly Bean’.
Jelly Bean, the name of a hard-shelled confectionary with a soft, delicious inside and also the name for Google’s next platform. For those that don’t know Android has had code names based on sweets and treats, earlier versions include Cupcake (v.1.5), Donut (v.1.6), Eclair (v. 2.0.1 and 2.1), Froyo (v.2.2), Gingerbread (v. 2.3), Honeycomb (3.0, 3.1 and 3.2) and the latest Ice Cream Sandwich (v. 4.0).
Unfortunately, this little incident was caught by Google and users who now try to purchase the Galaxy Nexus will now see that the little description has been removed. It may have been a mistake or a little sneak peak from what we can expect in Google’s next I/O conference, we just don’t know yet.
