Reliance Jio Set To Blitz The 5G Smartphone Market With Jaw-Dropping Price

Cometh the revolution, cometh Reliance. This time the price of 5G smartphones under the radar of Reliance.

It was certain that Honeycomb is not going to be available for mobiles and Google has made this pretty clear in MWC. However, it has spilled some beans on upcoming version of Android mobile platform (expected in third quarter of this year) which will be a mix of latest version of Android mobile platform – Gingerbread and Honeycomb – Android platform meant only for tablets.

Latest, Google’s CEO has exposed some of the information on upcoming Android mobile version – which he has addressed as version “I” – as per pocketnow. We assume that here “I” stands for “Ice Cream Sandwich” which is the name of Android’s next version. Interestingly, he preferred not to discuss a key question whether or not Ice Cream Sandwich will be just for smartphones or if it will be for tablets as well wasn’t addressed.

After the latest release of Android 2.3 ( Gingerbread) and Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), there were many fair comparison analysis were done. Though, both the platforms are meant for different segment, there are few useful features in each other which complement cross segments very well. And that many be the main reason Google has decided to post some of the features of Android Tablet version to mobile platform to provide a superior experience to enormously growing mobile market.

That certainly makes sense. Doing so allowed Google to get a head start on an OS for tablet devices, but still they can still go forward with a unified operating system for “devices that typically don’t have a keyboard”.

Besides, the latest marriage of Microsoft and Nokia also triggered “red” button for Android Team. Though its too early to claims the market grounds of new wedded entities, but Google don’t enjoy the comfort cushion especially when Apple, RIM, MeeGo and Windows Phone 7 are ready to challenge the Android dominance intelligently.
