Android 4.1 Jelly Bean name confirmed by Asus

Speaking at MWC 2012, Asus has hinted at the name for the upcoming Android OS

Speaking at MWC 2012, handset manufacturer Asus has seemingly confirmed the name of Google's next Android OS with 4.1 to be dubbed Jelly Bean

Whilst the new breed of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handsets are only just coming to market, manufacturer Asus has seemingly confirmed the OS follow-on Android 4.1 will be dubbed Android Jelly Bean.

Speaking with Tech Radar Asus has suggested its close relationship with Google will see it feature as one of the first brands to offer the Android 4.1 update later this year, confirming the software’s name in the process.

"Asus is very close to Google, so once they have Android 4.1 I think there will be a high possibility that we will be the first wave to offer the Jelly Bean update," said Benson Lin, Asus’ Corporate Vice President.

Continuing the sweet toothed theme of the Android mobile OS naming convention, Google has been previously rumoured to be preparing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for an autumn 2012 launch with the likes of Samsung and Motorola tipped to manufacture the operating system’s Google branded Nexus launch handset.
