Android Key Lime Pie was at Google I/O after allWe’re still getting over the fact that Google I/O saw pretty much no new stuff (unless you count the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google/Nexus Edition), having been promised – by the rumour mill, anyway – various new devices and a new version of Android.

The in-joke appears to confirm the Key Lime Pie moniker for Android 5.0, though in the meantime we’re still awaiting Jelly Bean Android 4.3.
