From Ice Cream Sandwich To Jelly Bean – Android5

Next to Ice cream sandwich it is going to be Jelly bean. Yes, that’s right, the latest Android5 aka Android Jellybean is the most hyped amongst various android app developers. The Android 2.x series started when Android 2.0 Eclair was released at the end of 2009. By the end of 2010, Froyo and Gingerbread (Android 2.2 and 2.3) were released and remained the┬ádominant┬áversions used until today. Since then, Google has released Android 3 (Honeycomb) and Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Android tablets or smartphone owners are practically exploit for keyboards choices. In the absence of any Google designed keyboard, Swype and Swiftkey have stepped up to the task and have provided high quality keyboards.
