In an interview with Computerworld Hiroshi Lockheimer, the vice president of engineering for mobile at Google, hinted that Google’s latest Android 5 Jelly Bean operating system would launch in the fall of 2012.
Lockheimer explained “In general, the Android release cadence is one major release a year with some maintenance releases that are substantial still.” Indicating that a new release maybe dropping within the fall as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was launched November 2011.
