Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, Android 5, New Android Update

Well, well, another version of Android appears to be on the horizon. Google plans to continue the trend of naming Android builds — in alphabetical order — after deserts, according to a report from The Verge.

First there was Cupcake, then Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and finally Ice Cream Sandwich.

As we reported in late February, the next major Android build will be named Jelly Bean, and even though Google has not officially acknowledged the next version of Android, it is believed that “Jelly Bean” could be released as soon as this summer despite the fact that Ice Cream Sandwich is on only 1% of all devices.

The Verge claims that “Key Lime Pie” will come after Jelly Bean. However, no details surrounding the OS were provided and no launch time frame was supplied beyond speculation that Google will launch Key Lime Pie in 2013.
