With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean currently dominating the green robot begin to appear early speculation about the next version.All it is noted to be called Key Lime Pie , something like key lime pie, but what news we see in this new update?
Since they appeared on the market the first devices with Android, namely the HTC Dream and HTC Magic , we have seen take up to eight versions in less than four years, and that not including the two initial beta version (Android 1.0 and 1.1). A few months ago Google had what is now the most current, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with interesting improvements like butter proyect.However, once the vortex formed around Android 4.1, the first doubts arise about what will bring Key Lime Pie.
Aspect more important than it seems
Undoubtedly Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was a major change to the Google platform. The graphical interface of the operating system was transformed outstanding aesthetics, largely the result of work of Matias Duarte, after arrival of the ill-fated Palm. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean no major changes in this respect as it is continuity. For this reason some people already think that the next update will focus on giving new makeover on a quest to perfect the simplicity of the system and its options. In addition, the finishing touches on Windows Phone from Microsoft have been polished a product that initially did not quite convince, but that over time has earned slowly to the user. The trick is a graphic layer-Metro-very simple, but bold and rapid in its operation. Is the refocusing going to exercise the system of Redmond more pressure on Google to improve the look of its popular Android?
Closely linked to the interface is the system’s behavior. There are many criticisms that have been Android for its performance and appears on the scene again Windows Phone. Coincidence? The issue is that it has been said many times that Android needs a relatively powerful hardware to “move” smoothly while others such as Windows Phone requires far fewer resources and work in a more optimized. Do you blame the Dalvik virtual machine ? Key Lime Pie ever find the solution in the implementation of Linaro ?
Other key points
Other points of debate come to the fore is the multitasking . Android has always been considered a true multitasking system, but it was not until the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S3 when the manufacturers have taken advantage of this process. Maybe the next version of Android work far this point since, at least for the tablets would be a useful idea of the size of the screen. This could interact with multiple applications at once and not keep in the background as happens now in most of smartphones. Can you imagine the productivity of Android with a multitasking so permissive? Navigate while editing a Word, check email while watching Youtube videos … are some examples that come to mind and that our view would achieve greatly enhance the user experience. And you, what would you ask to Key Lime Pie, the next update for Android?
