Google always names each Android operating system (OS) after a dessert name, and it seems that the next Android OS already has a name given to it.
According to a cartoon drawn up by Googler and cartoonist Manu Cornet, the next Android OS is likely to be called Key Lime Pie. The cartoon shows the evolution of the Android mascot from having Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean to Key Lime Pie.
The last major update to the Android OS was in June 2012, where Google unveiled Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Subsequently, the company released an incremental update, Android 4.2 in October alongside the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices. Key Lime Pie should make its debut next year at Google I/O 2013.
