Android 4.3 Jelly Bean not Key Lime Pie launching at Google I/O?

Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. According to this post at Reddit, some folks from Google’s HQ are browsing the web with Android 4.3 running on their Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices. Reportedly, this will be an incremental increase in the mobile platform, hence we’ll keep calling it Jelly Bean. In that sense, it’s likely we’ll see this version of the mobile OS, rather than Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, unveiled at the forthcoming Google I/O.

It is said that Google wants to give some breathing space to developers and not push major platform updates so quickly. Moreover, I guess the feature set for Key Lime Pie is still not ready and will have to wait for the second half of the year to get the whole new version of Android.

In any case, we’re looking forward to Google I/O and are hoping this updated Jelly Bean will allow us to manage the Share menu. I’ve already talked about how frustrating I feel about so many apps getting space in such critical menu. Other performance enhancements and new features will also be welcomed. ;)

    As long as we get few handy features I don’t care about the version number. :)

    A little disappointed, hope see Key Lime.
