Android Key Lime Pie Still Not Confirmed As Google Employee Teases Us


Before Google finally went official with Jelly Bean as the name for Android 4.1, it sure dropped a lot of hints. When the MWC rolled around back in February, and Google set up a nice big bowl of the candies for guests to enjoy, there was little doubt left in anyone’s minds as to the name choice, even if it would still be several months before a formal announcement. For now, plenty of speculation has looked to identifying the forthcoming Android “K” release as Key Lime Pie, and while we still don’t have anything we’d consider official confirmation, that’s not stopping one Google employee from running with the idea.

Google software engineer Manu Cornet also publishes cartoons on his own website, and he recently added one called “Robot Evolution”. Playing on some evolution of man images, depicting a hunched-over neanderthal growing into modern-day man, this lineup similarly starts with a hunchbacked Android. That guy’s got his Android 1.5 Cupcake, and dessert by dessert, Cornet works his way up to the present. Sure enough, he draws the most evolved Android as one enjoying a slice of Key Lime Pie.

Cornet responded to some questions about the comic on his Google+ page this morning, explaining that this is just for fun, and not any attempt to give credence to the Key Lime Pie theories. That may not have been his intention, but that’s exactly how a lot of people are reading this.
