Well I was just reading yesterday that there is a new update OS on the way. Officially I heard that it was called Jelly Bean even though it appears as a minor update v4.1. So it appears that it is not going to be ANDROID v5. However that said apparently it is going to add a fair amount of functionality to the ANDROID OS - even if your tablet doesn't support the functionality. This was an article in AUSTRALIAN APC magazine August 2012 page 8 for those who are interested. Yes the article deals with the nexus tablets. Personally I don't think that other manufacturers will be sleeping.
