Android 6.0 to be Named as ‘Key Lime Pie’ by Google!

As you may have noted, Google has yet to make any official announcement regarding its upcoming Android 5.0 which is rumored to be known as Jellybean and there is already news on what Android 6.0 will be called.

According to an anonymous source, Google’s sixth generation Android operating system will be called as Key Lime Pie. While the leading tech news portal like including 9to5Google has also made a coverage on that.

We all know that when it comes to naming, Google uses deserts name to denote its Android OS version and it going to follow the alphabetical order of the yummy desert. Android operating system names have progressed over these years from Donut, to Éclair, to Froyo, to Gingerbread, to Honeycomb, and finally the latest, Ice Cream Sandwich.


That also mean that after the ICS, it would normally be followed by something that begins with J – Jellybean. The Android 5.0 rumors began to spread like a wild fire on last month when Google tips off the Android fans by showing a bowl of Jellybeans during the Mobile World Congress 2012 which ended last week. So there is a high chance that Android 5.0 will be named after the Jellybeans.

So moving on to K, the only thing that really make sense would be the deserts name Key Lime Pie for Android 6.0. Don’t you think?
