Google plans to continue the trend of naming Android builds — in alphabetical order — after deserts, according to a report from The Verge. First there was Cupcake, then Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and finally Ice Cream Sandwich. The next major Android build will be named Jelly Bean. Even though Google has not officially acknowledged the next version of Android, it is believed that “Jelly Bean” could be released as soon as this summer, even though Ice Cream Sandwich is on only 1% of all devices. The Verge claims that “Key Lime Pie” will come after Jelly Bean, however no details surrounding the OS were provided and no launch time frame was supplied beyond speculation that Google will launch Key Lime Pie in 2013.
