This is not about any real pie, but the name for a new optimized OS system for Android tablet that soon will be installed on most of the incoming Android tablets. The name of this new Android OS is called Key ‘Lime’ Pie.

The key features mentioned are smarter keyboard that supports Gesture Typing, making messages writing easier, a simple glide over the letter using your finger will automate the auto complete function for predicting the words you are trying to input without having to complete the whole word and as well help to predict the next word you might want to use. This feature help users to finish entire sentences by just selecting suggested words.

The Android’s dictionaries are now build to be more accurate and relevant to what being search by users. There is also an improved text-to-speech capabilities that allow user to dictate what they wish to type into the message rather than manually type-in each letter or word without having to be connected to a data connection service.


The one tablet feature is useful to support for multiple users, you could give each person their own space, similar to the user account on Microsoft Windows OS. Each individual user could have their own homescreen, wallpaper/background, widgets, apps as well as games, even store individual high scores and levels.

The Android Key Lime Pie OS is built with multitasking in mind, and it’s a snap to switch between users, unlike Windows’ OS that need to be logged out and logged in, this Key Lime Pie OS does not need user to log off for switching user.

Users will be able to share what’s on your phone/tablet on the big screen, the previous Android 4.2 allows devices to share videos through wireless streaming. You could share movies, YouTube videos and anything on your Android tablet’s screen onto an HDTV wirelessly, all you need to do is connect the wireless adapter onto your HDMI enabled TV or display to stream what’s going on on your screen.

Furthermore, Key Lime Pie will allow Android tablet users to receive incoming phone calls or text messages using your voice for hands-free as well as quick access to other mobile tools including getting answers, explore and browse search results.

Key Lime Pie OS also allows you to search the web with your voice, and it’s convenient for getting quick answers on the fly. It speaks back to you and is powered by the Knowledge Graph, bringing you a precise answer if it knows it, and precisely ranked search results, so you can always find out more.

We guess, Key Lime Pie OS will be available on Google’s 32GB model of Nexus 7 tablet as well as the new 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet developed by Samsung.
