According to reliable sources in ‘This is My Next’, Jelly Bean is the name given to the new avatar of Android.

The names given were Cupcake 1.5, Donut 1.6, Eclair 2.1, Froyo 2.2, Gingerbread 2.3, Honeycomb3.0 and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich. Jelly Bean would be the next in line soon.
The report cites the industry source stating that the “game-changing stuff” that in the first place had been planned for Ice Cream Sandwich will be now pushed to Jelly Bean.

Ice Cream Sandwich is believed to be a universal operating system that shall be functioning on phones, tablets, TVs, and even phones that convert into laptops.
