    Android 5.0 Jelly Bean gains Motorola desktop mode - SlashGear (click for full article)

    "If you've used a Motorola Android device over the past year or so, you've very likely experienced Motorola's own "webtop" mode, this allowing your smartphone a desktop-like interface when plugged into an HDMI-capable display.


    The tip comes from Staska of Unwired View who notes that information he's gathered leads to the idea that Android 5.0 will have a desktop mode which activates whenever the device is plugged into a larger display. Could this have anything to do with Google's recent near-complete deal in which they're acquiring Motorola Mobility? It certainly would allow them to avoid patent suits should they actually make a desktop mode!


    The next version of Android is almost certainly going to be called Jelly Bean simply because of the naming conventions that Google has adopted for Android. Treats at every level, starting with Donut, going to Eclair, FroYo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and now Ice Cream Sandwich - so named because it combines the smartphone and tablet versions together in one.


    Now the next treat will be Jellybean - because what else could it be? And the next generation will be version 5.0. If it'll be coming out soon, that's a different question altogether."

    Google's Siri-Killer Packed into Android Jelly Bean? (click for full article)

    "We've seen numerous Siri clones arrive on Android Market both legit and utterly fake, but most of us are still waiting on Google to churn out a true competitor to Apple's Siri. Unfortunately, that may not happen until the end of the year, as Google "Assistant" (or Majel) could be a part of Android 5.0 "Jelly Bean" when it's reportedly unleashed before the end of 2012."
