In order to be more competitive against companies, such as Apple and to decrease the network operators’ control over the devices they’re selling, Google have decided to change their strategy for the development of Android. This is going to happen as early as the debut of the next version of the company’s mobile platform – the so-called Android Jelly Bean. It seems Google is about to give more (up to 5) manufacturers early access to the new versions of Android, which basically means, that we might see Nexus phones from more than one company in the recent future.

This approach will give manufacturers direct access to some key features and applications, which will lead to restricting the operators’ influence over the devices. Google will however achieve another important goal of their – they’re going to calm their partners, which were left quite unhappy with the Google-Motorola deal, despite the fact, that it has yet to be approved. With the company’s new model Motorola are in fact going to receive the source code of Jelly Bean much earlier, but so will the other big manufacturers. Devices running Google’s new software are expected to be released in Q4 of 2012 – just in time for the holiday shopping season. B. A.
