What comes after Android 5.0 Jelly Bean?

It seems that Google will be using the name "Key Lime Pie" for the version of Android that comes after Jelly Bean. The revelation comes from an insider who tipped The Verge on Android’s Jelly Bean update last year – so apparently, the source is reliable. At this time it is impossible to say what Android version number Key Lime Pie will be or when it’ll be unveiled - but as we haven’t even seen the Jelly Bean update yet, it might be reasonable to expect it in 2013.

Jelly Bean is expected to be released later this year and it will reportedly allow vendors to add Android 5.0 to a Windows 8-based tablet or notebook, allowing users to switch between the operating systems without a reboot. Key Lime Pie is assumed to improve the compatibility of the operating system on these future tablets.

Is anyone hungry for some Key Lime Pie?

The moment we learn more, we’ll keep you posted.

"Key Lime Pie" is too American.

So was Cupcake, and Froyo. What's your point? Confections don't exactly originate internationally, derp.

/do people pull these opinions out of their butt for fun or do they genuinely buy into them?

Android wouldn't exist if it wasn't for America.

I wouldn't call it a port of Linux. It's Linux, plain and simple, running a sort of Java VM that everything else plays inside of. It's how a lot of things are built these days: run-time layers between the applications and the warm, gooey insides. Android is neither lousy nor particularly clever. It's just there.

And it's nothing to shrug off: it's one of the few places where certain kinds of innovation can happen. Nothing spectacular, but you won't exactly find new text input concepts popping up on iOS or WP7, while stuff like swype still has people convinced I'm typing from a computer.

The problem with Android is that its proponents obsess over its advances in the wrong places. Every new core thrown into an Android handset gives them wood and they convince themselves that these bleeding edge hardware specs somehow matter, while every other platform manages twice the responsiveness on half the muscle. The Android fan marvels at bigger gas tanks while everyone else is getting more miles per gallon.
