What you can look forward to
Google Babble is a new feature of the operating system. This is a built-in app that will support cross-platform chat services. It is also not hardware specific either and will communicate with any mobile device. This is definitely going to revolutionize communications between people owning different types of mobile devices loaded with differing operating systems and chat services apps. Google Babble (with Android Key Lime Pie OS) is designed to integrate well with iMessage on Apple mobile devices and BlackBerry Messenger of BB smartphones.
With the Key Lime Pie OS, a new safety measure will also be a part of it. When placing your smartphone or mobile devices in “guest mode”, a colleague or member of the family who uses the smartphone, tablet or notebook will not have permissions to change settings or any crucial functions of the device. In the “guest mode” the operating system itself makes the devices tamper-proof and child-proof.
Most new mobile devices have hardware that supports energy conservation and are loaded with long lasting batteries. Besides this, Key Lime Pie OS has its own tricks to save energy. You can set your device to temporarily block email and social networking notifications when you are asleep. Although today’s mobiles have third party apps to handle this, in the case of Key Lime Pie the OS handles it efficiently for you. You won’t need to download special apps to monitor battery usage.
Renowned mobile manufacturers prefer to have their own user interface and skins so that the handsets look different. The interface of Key Lime Pie 5.0 gives manufacturers greater freedom to create customized apps for smartphones and tablets. Samsung’s Galaxy S IV has dynamic pre-loaded apps like S Health, Air View, S Voice Drive, etc. The processor speed and RAM of the new phone is compatible for the high performance capability of the operating system.
Which devices will have the OS?
A number of mobile devices that are schedule to launch this year will have the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie operating system. Some smartphones, tablets and notebooks with the OS have already been announced at the MWC, Barcelona in February 2013, for example:
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy S2 and S3 (upgradable)
- Motorola X
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (upgradable)
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
- LG Nexus 4
- Google’s Nexus 7 and 10 (Nexus 5 upgradable)
- Samsung Orb, and others.
Will you have to wait long for devices with Key Lime Pie Android 5.0?
Any news about Google is hot news and rumors tend to go viral. It’s no different about their latest, operating system that is yet to hit the markets. The mobile devices having the operating system will be available from May 2013 onwards, which is not a long wait for Android fans. The new OS is expected to overcome the problem of fragmentation so the adoption rate will be higher than that of Jelly Bean.
There has been some speculation that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS is a cross between Google Chrome and Apple’s iOS where functionality and features are concerned. If this is true, then Google is definitely aiming at better integration of Android Key Lime Pie mobile devices with PCs and laptops over the cloud. Cloud storage provides users of wireless mobile devices the capability to store and retrieve large amounts of data wirelessly because this is the need of the day. The new operating system will make this integration a smooth process aimed at improving the experience of users.
