New cartoon by Google employee could hint at Android Key Lime Pie for next release

As we noted in a recent post, Android has come a long way in the last five years, and we have truly seen an evolution of the operating system. As a spoof of this concept, Google employee Manu Comet posted a little drawing to his Google Plus page.  In it we see our little green friend evolving from a weak, frail, hunched-over blob, into a happy, healthy, upright and robust robot. In each phase of the evolution process he is eating the dessert that coincided with that particular Android release. Most interestingly, the last evolutionary phase of the process has our little green friend eating a slice of Key Lime Pie (long speculated as the next release of Android). This is by no means an official confirmation from Google, but it is pretty strong evidence to that end.  We don’t know what kind of features we will find in Key Lime Pie, or how much of a jump it will be from 4.2, but seeing all the great new features Google has cooked up in each of its recent releases gives us hope that we have a lot to look forward to! Now the waiting game…
