The general consensus is that Google’s next major Android release will be called Key Lime Pie, and we already have a variety of rumors out there talking about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, although nothing is confirmed just yet.
When making the jump from Android 4.1.x to Android 4.2, Google decided to keep in place the Jelly Bean moniker, which would mean that KLP would be unveiled only at some point in 2013, most likely at next year’s Google I/O edition.
In case you’re still not sold on the idea of KLP being the name of the next Android release, take a look at the graphic above. Its author is a Google employee, Manu Cornet, who posted it on Google+.
No, the drawing is not a commercial that endorses eating a lot of sweets to keep one happy. Instead it shows the evolution of Android deserts in the last four years: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, and… the future. Compared to the classic monkey-to-man drawings, this graphic clearly hints that the next desert following Jelly Bean will be a pie, a Key Lime Pie.
At the same time we’ll also notice that, according to Cornet, only on Ice Cream Sandwich did the Android robot get its full erect status. Do you agree?
