Could Android 4.2.2 be the last Jelly Bean version before Key Lime Pie?
Why? Italian HD Blog dug up the official Android source page at source.android.com and noticed Google’s interesting wording where the last iteration on each Android version is referred to as ‘latest.’ So basically could this mean that whenever a version gets 'latest' in its description, that means 'last' in Google's terms? Now, this is an interesting observation that would mean 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will be followed by Key Lime Pie.
So for the time being, this is nothing more than an interesting assumption derived from Google’s interesting wording. It does ally well with rumors of Key Lime Pie getting introduced at Google I/O in May, though, so why not? What do you think? Right below is the Android version history straight from Google's official source code site for Android.

Hopefully Key Lime Pie will be better than jellybean. I mean, i'm really sick of lag and stuff like that

JB doesn't run on iPhone so yea it's "LAG"ging there :D

Stop Trolling.. Where do you find a lag? I have GS3 and Nexus 4, Both running their respective latest Android versions, ie 4.1.2 and 4.2.1 and I swear there is minimal/no lag in both phones.
Either you are an Iphone or have Android 1.6 DoNut running on your phone.

They are lying.. !
jellybean Never lag ..
Some apps makes problems..but if sumthng lag happens becoz of apps , that particular app will restart within next 5 seconds .. not like OLD phones taking minutes may be we have to remove battery to restart....
btw Phone never lags .. this phone never went turned off by itself .. NEVER !!
i seriously wana ask .. what you mean by lag ?
Exynos Quad Core really helps ... i believe it is MOST POWERFULL CHIP for the phone .. !

You are wrong in last point, Exynos Quad Core is NOT the Most Powerfull chip out there.
Havent you heard of anything called snapdragon, qualcomm etc??

I have a GNote 2, and I also have lag issues (minimal ones) but I guess it mainly comes from solely the Application's programming.

bogdancirstea, maybe if you didn't buy one of those low-end JB Android--ya know, the ones that come in a plastic box and have a "Pay As You Go" sticker on the front--you wouldn't have "lag."
Get a real Android, bro.

13. Coolest4ever7 (Posts: 23; Member since: 07 Feb 2013)
Is it out for the Nexus 10 yet? I havent seen any updates available on mine

WRONG!! I made an account on this site just to say this......I own a Samsung galaxy nexus..at first when I got the phone its was faster than fast....no lag whatsoever..I was on 4.1.1 I think when I first got the phone.then all of the sudden the 4.2.1 update comes along and I decide to upgrade....expecting some upgrades...when I update I noticed lags all over the place...most notably to lock and unlock the phone...it takes 1 and a half seconds almost to register and the dial pad(which is by far the worst) the app drawer and games have lags too....now in don't know if I got like a bootleg update or something but its more than irritating :/ hopefully someone can help me....or I'll just wait till 4.2.2 because I want my phone to register touches instantly like it used to....thank you for your time :)
