SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: March 22, 2012

Happy Thursday, everyone. How’s it going? Are you hungry? Could you use a snack, like, say, some jelly beans? Well you’re in luck because we have Jelly Bean news – Android version 5.0, colloquially known as Jelly Bean, has been tipped for a Q3 release. In other mobile news US Cellular has launched its first LTE device, the Galaxy Tab 10.1. And on a completely different spectrum of news, get this – those Mass Effect 3 complaints actually worked: Mass Effect 3 devs exploring alternative endings.

Featured: So while we’re on the topic of gaming, and making decisions that really upset fans, let’s talk about the Wii U. It now seems like Nintendo’s new console will be the only “next-generation” platform we see at E3 in June, but now that Xbox 720 and PS4 seem out of the picture, should the Wii U still launch in 2012? Our Don Reisinger explains why his answer to that question is “no” in his latest column.

Ice Cream Sandwich, Minecraft, and US Airways: So the Ice Cream Sandwich factory continues to churn ever so slowly, adding the HTC Vivid to the line of devices that are being ushered in to Google’s latest mobile platform. Moving back to gaming for a second, we’ve also got news about a pretty monumental title making its way to the Xbox 360 – we’re talking about Minecraft, of course. And finally for today, if your travel plans include US Airways in the future, you’ll be happy to know that carrier will have in-flight WiFi in 90% of its fleet by the end of this year.
