Android 4.3 Spotted in Server Logs, Still Going by Jelly Bean
Just yesterday, we were talking a little about what direction Google might be heading with future Android builds, and entertained the idea that neither Android 5.0 nor Key Lime Pie are in our immediate future. At the time, that might not have been any more than some educated guesswork, but newly uncovered evidence is making that seem just a bit prescient, with server logs pointing to the existence of Android 4.3, still using the Jelly Bean name.
Servers are reporting connections from devices running Android 4.3, build JWR23B. Analysis of the IP addresses used by this gear, identified as Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices, points right to Google’s campus.
These seem to have only just recently started appearing in logs, which could indicate that Google is gearing up for the software’s formal launch. With Google I/O just a matter of weeks away, this is some pretty hard evidence to ignore.
In the end, it doesn’t really matter what Google calls the software, but what changes are present. As we wait for those answers, we might just have to put all this Key Lime Pie stuff on the back burner for a while.
