Android Key Lime Pie teased by Google I/O developer sessions?

Google may have teased Android Key Lime Pie during its Google I/O developer sessions last week, despite not officially mentioning the latest iteration of the mobile OS.

Two Key Lime Pie references have been spotted within the Google I/O developer sessions presentations, potentially teasing the next version of Android.

The above picture was spotted during one developer session and shows the Android mascot chowing down on a slice of Key Lime Pie.

Secondly, another reference (provided below) was spotted in a separate developer session showing the Android robot battling against a one-eyed, tentacle brandishing monster. Its listed magical powers include Chrome, Jelly Bean and Key Lime Pie.

The two Easter eggs are of course in no way an official confirmation of the Android Key Lime Pie OS, as Google has a habit of playing cheeky games with its fans and followers.

Android 4.3 Key Lime Pie
Android 4.3 Key Lime Pie was seemingly confirmed on the Google Developers site just hours before the Google I/O keynote speech that eventually failed to offer any concrete details on the new mobile OS or any new products.

Tipped to offer support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and OpenGL for Embedded Systems 3.0 graphics, Android 4.3 Key Lime Pie could launch on June 10.

A recent internet rumour suggest that Google will launch a white Google Nexus 4 complete with the new Android OS on June 10, after deliberately choosing not to showcase Android 4.3 Key Lime Pie at Google I/O.

Google chose to focus on its Google Developers Services at Google I/O 2013, proving that it could make changes to its services and APIs without having to introduce a new operating system.

Some of the new Google features unveiled at Google I/O include Google Play Music All Access, Google Play Games services, new Google Maps APIs and updates to Google Hangouts and Google Plus.
