Android 5.0 to arrive one year after Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android 5.0 Jelly Bean looks set for a November release. Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's vice president of engineering for mobile, hinted that the OS would follow Android's previous pattern of yearly releases.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was launched in November 2011, so Jelly Bean could be only eight months away. Google teased Android fans with bowls of jelly beans on display at its MWC stand, suggesting Jelly Bean will be on the way sooner rather than later.

Google's keeping its cards close to its chest on what'll be packed into Android 5.0, but it's expected that Jelly Bean tablets will be able to dual-boot between Windows 8 and Android 5.0.
