Android Key Lime Pie to follow Jelly Bean

Android Key Lime Pie to follow Jelly Bean Verge has said today that Google will name their future Android update "Key Lime Pie," following the yet unreleased "Jelly Bean."
Google confirmed Android 5.0 Jelly Bean earlier this week, but sources have already tipped the company's hand on the update to follow. 5.0 is expected to be launched in the Q4 of 2012.

Says Verge: "We were tipped by a reliable source today that Google will be using the name "Key Lime Pie" for the version of Android that comes after Jelly Bean (in fact, the information comes from the very same source that tipped us to the Jelly Bean codename last year)."

Google recently launched Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the OS is only on 3 percent of devices. The update is the largest to date, and completely transforms the interface and integration of popular Android apps.
