Nexus 7 2nd generation and Android Key Lime Pie update

There is speculation that the Nexus 7 2nd-generation is to be the first device released running Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, but we find this a little hard to believe. The reason we say this is because Google is expected to unveil the new version of the ASUS 7-inch budget tablet next month during their I/O event, but we have reason to believe KLP will be delayed by several months.

There does seem to be a conflict here, as IBT expects to see the release of the Nexus 7 sequel around July, which is set to take yet more sales away from the Apple iPad mini. However, another news report states that Android 5.0 could be delayed by 2 to 4 months, although we do not even know when the mobile OS was due for release.

When Google does unveil the Nexus 7 2, then we have to wonder what version of Android the tablet will run on? They could have an early Key Lime Pie build just to give us a taste of what to expect, then again it could run on Jelly Bean for now. This is not a huge issue, as ASUS and Google will not release the new Nexus 7 until KLP is ready.

As yet Google has not even announced that they will be showing off Android 5.0, but it’s the best platform for them to launch their iOS 7 competitor This is also the case with the Nexus 7 sequel, as we still have no idea if the tablet even exists, but recent rumors seems to suggest otherwise.

What do you think we are likely to see during Google I/O 2013? Will we see both the Nexus 7 2nd-gen and Android 5, or even the rumored updated version of the Nexus 4, which is said to come with increased storage. Then again, there’s a small chance we could even see the Nexus 5.
