Android Key Lime Pie allegedly pushed back, not coming to Google I/O 2013

Android Key Lime Pie allegedly pushed back, not coming to Google I/O 2013
Google’s upcoming I/O 2013 taking place from May 15th to 17th was widely expected to become the stage for something big, but latest rumors say Google has scaled down plans and the biggest star of the show won’t make it. The expected official unveiling of Android Key Lime Pie, said to be Android 5.0, has allegedly been delayed by 2 to 4 months.

Google has pushed back the announcement of Android Key Lime Pie in order to give more time for manufacturers to prepare and give them some time to first push the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean to their devices.

Also, more evidence points out to no big Motorola unveilings at Google I/O 2013. Instead, Google is once again said to bring a 32GB 4G LTE version of its Nexus 4. The LTE Nexus 4 might sell for $349, while the 16GB Nexus 4 with no LTE support could get discounted to $299. This could mean the most basic 8 gig Nexus 4 will be phased out or could drop to $249. Interestingly, the same rumor says the new LTE Nexus 4 will come with a slightly redefined design.

As to that brand new Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and the mysterious Google Motorola X phone, those are expected to appear only later on in the year.

no it mean that MOTO X will be just another Galaxy S4. nothing special is going to be on it. best chances of it being different is that it will offer stock android, rather than Moto theme. Also we all knew this year would be too early for a new nexus. also 5.0 android. if you didnt see that come you are a blind fan boy. be realistic. it takes alot of time to program one tiny thing such as sphere camera let alone entire os.

The S4 has more new stuff than any other phone released this year has had since its predecessor, the One is literally a glorified Droid Dna.

ignore the sensors because they wont come in any use. the only way s4 has hand above other phones is the digitizer which can be used while wearing gloves.

Copycats™ will steal idear's from Android™

Many of Android's ideas were taken from iOS, webOS, and even BB OS. Don't act like Android is entirely original since it is based off Linux.

Oh......please grow up. Nothing wrong with having a difference of opinion. There wouldn't be an Android without iOS, keep that in mind; the guy did work for Apple. Think of the devices you had before 2007.

I hope you educate you're tech side, and not post rubbish or BS what you don't no. Say's the ios user fan™ Trolling, stating facts and honesty. There's nothing to Troll here. Ios fans are average joes, and don't live on techs, and geeks world. They believe everything what Apple and steve jobs say. In denial. Please do you're self a favour get some knowledge on Tech world™

Learn how to read, I never stated iOS was the only OS back in the day.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

It's cause of Webos that ios copied. Android is a family of Linux not scrap ios™ Ios is just an app launcher™ Get over it. Don't post BS™

those ideas were taken at the beginning... but now android is mostly the OS that innovates while others follow. Of course android still takes ideas from iOS, and others... but usually is the other way around


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Linux is Android, Android is Linux! Idears of Android was taken from WebOs, while Linux xzisted befor ios! You're comparing half-baked Darwin OS to a full Linux! It takes up 200mb of Ram to run ios, where's Android takes up more Ram to run it's Os! Ios is on a diffrent league™

Don't act like iOS is entirely original, as it's based on OS X, which is based on Unix.

In reality, what everyone wishes to find in the new IOS7 is what already exists in android since 2010. So people are actually wishing for Android without knowing it, or do they?? hmm to be or not to be is the question!

well saying that Android took ideas from iOS isnt completely correct. Each OS that comes out, puts all the features that the other OSes have plus its own features to make a better OS. We also cant say that if iOS didnt exist, then Android wouldnt of either, because the android project was started well before the iPhone was released. Back to copying ideas; its like saying microsoft copied Apple in its Windows OS. But Apple copied Xerox in its OS. Then Xerox probably copied from IBM and IBM probably copied some application. Ultimately, we cant say that one OS is copying another.They may have the same feature but that is because the consumers demand for it.

So this year's I/O will not be as interesting as previous I/Os. ;(

Dont worry. 80% of all android devices wont get the update.If they do, they'll be delayed again and again.
