Today’s Google I/O rumor is a Debbie Downer, but take it with a very small grain of salt. Google I/O is taking place next month, and unless you have been living under a rock, you know it’s the biggest stage of the year for Google. Naturally you would expect that a new version of their OS would be announced, even if it were a minor tweak. Everyone and their brother is expecting that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be the chosen one, but a new rumor suggests that Google is pushing it back two to four months. The supposed reason is to give OEMs “breathing room” as in so many phones aren’t running Ice Cream Sandwich and/or Jelly Bean yet.
This sounds plausible, but this has been a problem since day one for Android so why would Google start caring about it now? It doesn’t make much sense to me, but a rumor is a rumor and some of them do come true.
