This year, Google is expected to debut the new Android 5.0 Jelly Bean platform, and should make a change in the previous approach to releasing it on only one flagship device.
In line with previous rumors, new reports suggest that there will be multiple Nexus handsets arriving on shelves in 2012, and that they will come from more than a single manufacturer.
OEMs are expected to differentiate their devices through the included hardware capabilities, while loading the same Android UI on all of them.
According to a recent article on The Wall Street Journal, there might be as much as five Nexus handsets launched with Android 5.0 on board, and they will be sold directly through Google (just as Nexus One was in the beginning).
Tablet PCs might be included in the program as well, the news site reports.
