Google Inc (GOOG) Celebrating a 5th Birthday With This Dessert, Says Report

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has its little bundle of joy that has grown rapidly, with broad shoulders to support a wide market of support. It has grown bigger than Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in terms of growth and how many lives it has impacted in the smartphone universe. Though it’s only just now getting to the age of kindergarten, it is already well-schooled in the smartphone school of success. And to celebrate a birthday, Google seems ready to roll out a dessert that is apparently so good we’ve been hearing about it for months now.

Google Inc (GOOG)Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), according to reports, seems to be prepping for the launch of its new iteration of the Android operating system, called Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, to commemorate five years of Android. The operating system, which is a year newer than the iOS platform Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) devised when it put out the iPhone and was the catalyst behind Steve Jobs’ “thermonuclear war” comment against Google for plagiarism claims, will advance to the much-talked-about Key Lime Pie iteration sometime in October, according to sources.

Also, to take a page out of the Apple book, the new OS version will be available for older and cheaper devices – in fact, the report says KLP could be used for all current Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android devices that have as little as 512 megabytes of RAM.

This could be a first serious attempt by Google to mitigate and minimize the fragmentation of Android that exists now. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) likes unifying  some of its devices, like the new iOS 7 that comes out this fall would be available for not only iPhone 5, but also for the iPhone 4 and 4S models.

The report also seems to suggest that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) will release Android 5.0 KLP alongside the new Motorola X smartphone, which reportedly will have LTE support and will run pure Android 5.0 KLP – perhaps as a flagship Google Edition phone to debut the unvarnished new OS. Google expects to release an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update sometime in August just before Key Lime Pie launches. What are your thoughts? Are you an Android user who has been anticipating Key Lime Pie? How do you see it stacking up with iOS 7 by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)? Give us your feedback in the comments section below.
