Rumour or genuine bad news? Only time will tell right now but according to Gadgetronica, their inside sources have revealed that Google may be looking to delay Key Lime Pie by as much as 4 months. The reasoning behind this is simple, reduce the forking in the market and allow the OEM manufacturers to catch up.
Recently it was reported that Android 4.1 and 4.2 were gaining traction in the marketplace with 16.5% of the Android active users now on Jellybean. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, as at the March figures commanded a respectable 28.6% of the marketshare. With the trend of active devices moving towards the newer versions of Android, are Google making the right decision if in fact they are delaying Android 5.0 to allow this trend to continue?
If they do delay Key Lime Pie, it raises some small questions as to the validity of the Nexus 5 rumours that have been floating around for a while now. Worth keeping eyes and ears out for further news to come prior to Google I/O.
Do you think it’s the right decision to delay Key Lime Pie, or is it going to cause more issues that it solves? Let us know in the comments below
