Hear about the new evidence for work on Key Lime Pie builds, possibly foretelling the launch of Android 5.0.
Android 4.3 was recently announced and is rolling out to phones and tablets now. What's new, and what does it tell us about Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie?
When Google released its Google Now app we saw our first look at a card-based UI in an Android app. Touted as being able to show you “the right information at the right time”, this new design for displaying information is elegant. It’s a simple and to-the-point method that standardizes information onto a single “card”, separated from other information.
It should come as no surprise. We’ve been using cards for a very long time in our everyday lives. Libraries used to catalog all their books and media offerings on individual cards in something [...]
Apple is holding its developer conference (WWDC) in approximately two weeks. WWDC is roughly analogous to the Google I/O that concluded a few weeks ago. According to the WWDC website, we will be able to get an in-depth look at what to expect next in both iOS as well as OS X and developers will be shown how to take their apps “to the next level”. It’s really an impressive shindig with over 100 sessions, hands-on labs, events, and even the opportunity to connect with Apple engineers and fellow developers — and Google may be laying in wait to steal Apple’s [...]
See the images hidden in Google I/O videos as early Key Lime Pie teasers.
It’s not common to see Larry Page on stage for a Google event, regardless of how big it is. Usually Eric Schmidt or Sergey Brin have been the ones that have shined the most for their showmanship, and as I watched the Google I/O keynote yesterday, Larry changed that, and he said something that really struck a nerve – “We should be doing what nobody else is doing”. He also said things like “We should work on getting technology out of the way”, and other phrases we’ve heard in the past, but by the late CEO of another company I don’t even [...]
Tune in here to watch the Google I/O 2013 Keynote live, on our page, followed shortly by our editorial roundtable with first impressions and more!
We may or may not see Android Key Lime Pie at Google I/O 2013. Whether we do or not, here are our last-minute Android Key Lime Pie requests.
What will be announced at Google I/O 2013? That’s the question of the hour, especially for supporters and enthusiasts of Google’s wildly popular mobile platform. The developer conference is generally where Google unveils its latest groundbreaking products, where we were first introduced to the Nexus Q, Nexus 7, Project Glass and Jelly Bean last year.
Skydivers jumped from a plane, BMX riders jumped over building gaps, and one crazed man ran down the side of a building, all to demo Glass to the world, and to deliver a Glass unit to Sergey Brin on stage.
Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Windows Phone 8 GDR2 and a a possible release date along with some billboards that show us what the Nokia Lumia 928 is all about. Then we move to HTC as the red HTC One shows itself in the UK, along with the fact that HTC has improved in sales this month when compared to last month. Then we go through the BlackBerry R10 being compared the Q10, just to make your choice for either much easier since the R10 is just ugly. Later we go through the leaks of a mysterious LG phone we assume to be the Optimus G2, and then we talk about the [...]
Read about the current rumors surrounding the next version of Android, and the possibility of Google releasing multiple flavors of Key Lime Pie -- or just another Jelly Bean.
Find out who's been saying that the HTC One X is about to see its Android updates dry up.
Read what the latest rumors are saying about the launch of Android 5.0, and why we're not particularly inclined to believe them.
“Get ready for a simpler Google Play.” That’s what Google had to say in a blog post about the upcoming version of their Play Store.
“The new design focuses on bigger images that jump off the page. Similarly themed content is grouped together so you can hone in on a magazine to read or an app to try. As you move down the page, new recommendations continue to appear so there is always more to see and explore. We’ve also simplified purchasing so you can breeze through checkout and get to enjoying your movie rental or other content.”
The next version of Android, Key Lime Pie, needs one thing to win me over. Read on to see how un-fancy my request is, and how unlikely I think Google is to grant it.
We’re all familiar with companies that partner with others to pre-bundle “exclusive” software on their devices. NFL football apps, NASCAR, Internet TV, and more have been included on devices from Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile, just as examples. These types of partnerships attempt to lure fans to switch to the “official carrier” of whatever it may be.
Then we began to see other strategic partnerships rise. Partnerships that made more sense. I’m referring to the arrangement between HTC and Dropbox. Back in 2011 Dropbox announced that [...]
With Jelly Bean adoption rate relatively low, and 'fragmentation' already a bone of contention to Android skeptics, is Android 5.0 really necessary?

Put your ears on the latest rumors and speculation on the hottest new smartphones and tablets, from the HTC M7 to the Nokia EOS, from Windows Phone to Android Key Lime Pie. It's all on the Pocketnow Weekly.
Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Google’s confirmation that they will support sync services for Windows Phone during the next six months as an extension to their past death threat. We later talk about the Galaxy S IV and the probable release dates. Qualcomm apparently leaks Android’s next name, but considering how many pastries are left that start with a K, that wasn’t a difficult one. Then we talk about the Microsoft Surface RT and bad it’s performing when it comes to store returns. We end today’s show by talking about the HTC M7 and [...]

Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Android’s probable 5.0 name that never was. Then the iPhone 5 returns to the news, though this time because it continues its pursuit for world domination. Microsoft may also be working on something highly urgent for SkyDrive according to some rumors. Then we go through the probable leaks of the HTC Titan III. We end today’s show talking about a good amount of Samsung products to be launched after this holiday season.
All this and more after the break.
