The next Android will be 'Key Lime Pie'

The next Android will be 'Key Lime Pie' A Google employee has let it be known that the next iteration of Android will be dubbed "Key Lime Pie."
Posting the drawing to his Google+ account, the employee pictured the evolution of the operating system from its humble beginnings as "Cupcake" all the way to a giddy Android eating a piece of key lime pie.

Cupcake was Android 1.5, Donut was 1.6, Eclair was 2.0, Froyo was 2.2, Gingerbread was 2.3, Honeycomb was 3.x and more recently Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and Jelly Bean 4.1. The drawing is a play on the evolution of man, with the earlier versions of the OS playing our ape ancestors.

Judging by the drawing, the employee feels Ice Cream is the real start of a new era, as it is the first droid to be standing erect.
