Android 5.0 “Jelly Bean” Could Cause Problems for Developers

Google is reportedly set to launch Android 5.0 in the second quarter of 2012, despite Android 4.0 only being available for 1% of Android devices at the moment.  Android updates, unlike updates to iOS and WP7, are not uniform with all phones, and most users have to wait months for their handset’s manufacturer and carrier to push the update.  On top of that, many phones are neglected with update support.  Developers could find themselves in a dilemma with a new version of Android coming out before the current one has even reached a quarter of devices.
