Google may have just teased Android 5.0

Play Store have their clocks set to 4:40, because they ship with Android 4.4.Yesterday, Google's official Twitter account posted an image of Google Now running on a Nexus 5. The point of the tweet was simply to announce that match scores and schedules for the World Cup would be showing in Google Now for Android and iOS. A nice new feature, but possibly not the most interesting part of the tweet, because the clocks on the devices in the image are reading 5:00. All of the devices in the Google
We are just two weeks away from Google I/O, so a tease like this could mean that we are going to see Android 5.0 announced at the end of this month. Full version number changes tend to indicate UI updates for Android, and we have certainly seen quite a few leaks that point to design changes on the way for Android, including the mysterious Project Hera. It is also expected that Android TV will be announced at I/O, which further implies that Android 5.0 might really be on the way.

That is worth some excitement. I wonder if they are going to keep the nickname "Key Lime Pie" as the codename for Android 5.0

Since they already used "K" on 4.4, probably not. They could still do "Lime Pie" though.

I really hope that they'll announce more GPE devices, if 5.0 is going to be a huge overhaul, then being on an old version and having unconsistent UIs isn't attractive to me. There's already an M8 GPE but that camera is ... meh. I'm hoping for a Z2 GPE, or maybe the G3 GPE , i don't like their sofware, but their hardware is GREAT.
