The news is 99% a fake, check the source. There you can read this:
"Our trusty internal sources have revealed"
which means nothing ;-)
No clues, no news!

I hope they will introduce a new nexus 7... The 32gb Nexus 4 isn't bad also...

I would rather they wait, then release a buggy update. The pressure to hit all of these self-imposed deadlines has contributed to way too many half-baked updates. I am not looking for perfect, just prefer things a little more polished and finished.

So no key lime pie, no X-phone, and a re-designed nexus 4. Im glad i didnt waste $1500 on Google I/O tickets. Sounds like they're probably gonna be focusing on Google glass with its non functionality and yet another year of waiting for a consumer version

They have to wait for slow OEMs like Sony I guess, it's a damn shame.

Hopefully we'll see a new Nexus 7 with higher res display. They must keep that 8GB Nexus 4, it's a bargain for those who want a powerful Android without having to pay a premium price.

So Google has finally realized of pushing updates every 3 months causes fragmentation.there is also a major problem google is not recognizing and it is hardware recommendation for every new version they launch.I think one major update every year will decrease fragmentation & also the os will be bug free.

Might as well push it back. Jellybean is half a year old and yet it still has a very low adoption rate compared to ICS and Gingerbread. Releasing Key Lime Pie right now would just set the who scene backwards since many phones will be two upgrades behind.

All right, we'll wait. My guess is that:
1) Software wise, Google is not in a hurry, because WP8 and iOS6 are still behind Jelly Bean and iOS7 will probably be released in Q3, so there's no urgency to update.
2) As the article said, OEMs are still updating to JB and Google does not want to cut their sales by releasing a new major release now. Also, developers are still starting to use the new JB APIs (for example, low latency audio... I've found just one piano app that uses it).
3) in my opinion, the HTC One and Facebook new homescreens convinced Google that a change is necessary, so they could have decided to delay KLP to implement something new on the homescreen (for example, a Google Now / Google Plus integrated home and lock screen).

I hope this rumour is false. I want a slice of Key Lime Pie come May.

manufacturers will always be behind the update curve. kind of pointless to delay KLP on account of that.

dont be too hurry..it's better not to have a beta, laggy,half baked update.
Just take your time,& add some cool innovative features , update android ui to a more modern one, polish os and deep integrate social netwoking sites, and do whatever you can to make android os better :-)

Good to hear that Google is listening to users, who have long wished for (1) more storage space on the phone if they're not going to provide a microSD card slot and (2) LTE. If I weren't still over a year away from my next upgrade, I'd definitely consider upgrading my Galaxy Nexus to a 32GB Nexus 4 with LTE. :-)

What's the point in even having Google I/O in May? Why waste the money when there's nothing to announce?

Well, that's disappointing! Other than the expected showcasing of the Google Glass project, there's not much to get very excited about. Android 5.0 should have definitely been the highlight of the upcoming Google event. Maybe they should have delayed the Google I/O until Android 5.0 and Motorola X phone was ready.

Even if they don't release it due to manufactors being slow it would be awesome if they released the source code for ROMs :P. Won't happen though haha. Hopefully they take their time and this Key Lime Pie is polished as can be.

what's the point of google I/O if there is no new Nexus phone or new Android version.
