Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie spotted in the wild

Is Android’s biggest update so far already here? It looks that way from a Sony LT30i spotted testing it on Nenamark

Just as Droid fans accepted the incremental Jelly Bean update of 4.2 – Google has gone and leaked Android 5.0, rumoured to be called Key Lime Pie. The new OS was logged on the Nenamark bench testing site running on a Sony LT30i – so could we see a new Nexus from yet another brand soon?

Since the Google Nexus 4, made by LG, has only just landed it’s unlikely a new Nexus will be here soon, even if Sony does want to be its latest manufacturer. But with rumours of Google watering down Nexus to use the brand as a guideline for manufacturers – like Intel does with ultrabook – it’s still a possibility.

Of course Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie won’t arrive until a new Nexus device does so we’re taking this slice of rumour pie with a side of salt until we get a look at the whole sweet thing.
