Let’s be honest, Google’s Android Jelly Bean is an accomplished operating system in all of its versions, and it has brought the Android platform to maturity where before it was still buggy (at least in this writers opinion). That new edge of pure quality means we are really excited about the next full version of Android; the next generation of Android is widely rumoured to be coming on the next line of Nexus products from Google, as well as the fabled Motorola Phone X.
While we think this is very unlikely on the next Android, we have to put it near the top of our list. The system as it stands is flawed, which can be highlighted by the slow update for Jelly Bean to older devices, yes we are looking at you Samsung. Currently, the OS maker (in Androids case Google) create the software patch and update and then send it to manufacturers who then implement it onto their individual devices. Of course this process if drawn out and we think moving some middle men is that way to go, so we would love to see direct updating to a device by device owner on Android 5.0.
A Phablet Ready Android
I owned a tablet back in the early days of Android and indeed tablets, and the OS simply struggled in tablet form. In the early Android versions, the operating system cracked the phone OS market, and then from Android 3.0 it cracked the tablet OS market. However since Android became a viable tablet OS a new kind of mobile device has appeared, the phablet. These devices typically have around 5-inch or 6-inch screens, and are small enough to be smartphones, but have enough screen real estate to be solid tablets too. We would like Android 5.0 to be optimized to be fully compatible with phablets (such as the Galaxy Note 2 from Samsung) just as it is with smartphones and tablets.
