With Android 2.3 Gingerbread commanding the largest share of the platform, many users are still waiting on 4.1 and 4.2 updates. Announcing a brand-new 5.0 release full of new features and capabilities in mid-2013 could do potentially do more harm than good. With that in mind, a minor 4.3 update seems entirely plausible. I get the sense that we’re in for an Android evolution next week, not a revolution.
Whether we see Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, here are some OS advancements I hope will be implemented by the time Android 5.0 does come around.
