Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie Release Date Approaches as Software Appears in Benchmarks

The Android 5.0, release date must be quickly approaching as the new software appeared in benchmarks earlier this week.

The device running the software was the Sony LT30i and it appeared on the NenaMark Benchmark charts.

It listed that it was running Android 5.0 which is rumored to be called Key Lime Pie in order to follow in the footsteps of previous builds of the software.

Key Lime Pie will run on both tablets and smartphones.

Android 4.2 was originally believed to be the long awaited Key Lime Pie, but that rumor was squashed when Google confirmed that build would retain the JellyBean name.

Android 4.2 debuted on the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet and LG Nexus 4 smartphone.

The update is expected to roll out to many devices in the near future. However, some that have already downloaded it are experiencing problems.

A bug on the software prevents users from selecting December for events such as birthdays inside the People app.

Google has stated that it will fix the bug before the beginning of next month.

"We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app," said Google on the Android Google+ page. "Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won't be forgotten by your friends and family."

The Android 4.2, JellyBean update will not be available for Nexus S or Motorola XOOM users.

This news was confirmed by Google's Jean-Baptiste Queru, who stated that both devices will remain running Android 4.1.2.

The reasoning behind the software not updating to the latest build of Android is due to the older hardware included on the Nexus S and Motorola XOOM.

There were already reports of Android 4.1 running slow on both devices, so updating to the newer build would not be the best idea.
