Any up to date Android user knows that Google hasn’t hesitated to squeeze as much out of Jellybean as they possibly could. But as Google I/O approaches rumors have surfaced that Key Lime Pie will be revealed at the event. With the event around the corner everybody seems to be jumping on the rumor train as to what will be revealed this year. 

Android 4.2 launched along with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 back in October, shortly after it was pushed to the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. After that an update was released, 4.2.1 in November. The update fixed numerous bugs such as the missing December from the birthday calender that got so much attention. But since then we’ve heard nothing from Google.

While Android 4.2 has been great it is still plagued with many problems that in my opinion are in desperate need to get fixed such as the poor wifi connectivity with the Nexus 4 or the random reboots on the Nexus 10. That is where Android 4.2.2 comes into play. It is supposed to fix both of these problems plus more and we know it’s coming as it’s already been seen on Brazilian Nexus 4’s.

This update seems a little overdue especially coming from Google who are usually very good about getting updates out when they are needed. But this could be a good sign, it tells us that Google is more than likely making some substantial changes to the underlying code that could make this next software update worth the wait.
