Earlier this week a leaked Qualcomm roadmap managed to find its way onto the interwebs, and it was full of useful and potentially damaging information and was quickly pulled. Our friends from AndroidPolice first posted the details, but were shortly thereafter ordered to remove the information. Today some new details have surfaced confirming that along with the Qualcomm information, the slides also reported Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is coming this spring.
According to multiple reports and people close to the matter, many of the slides had revealing information about both Qualcomm and Google’s plans for the next few months. Those included clear roadmaps detailing Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, and that the (K-release) of Android would be revealed in the “Spring of 2013”.
Now this isn’t really extremely huge or important news, as we basically already had an idea this was coming — it was just never confirmed. The extremely fun and popular Google I/O event each year has been the platform in which Google announces each new iteration of Android, and the same was expected for KLP. Last year they showed off Jelly Bean, and this year we are all expecting Google to show off Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at Google I/O 2013 on May 15-17th.
Quickly after posting the information it was immediately suppressed. We aren’t sure if the takedown notice was regarding the leaked Qualcomm chipset information, or if this had anything to do with the sensitive Google materials also provided in the slides. Either way this was quickly removed and now mum’s the word. I’m hoping we’ll see the Motorola X-Phone, a new Nexus tablet, and Key Lime Pie all that week. Stay tuned for more details.
