Some Italian bloggers with a lot of time on their hands did some serious digging and came to an interesting conclusion. After perusing through the official Android source page at source.android.com, they noticed that for each final version of Android just before the next generation, Google uses the word "latest" at the end to identify it. They surmised that this is Google's not-so-subtle coding for "last version." What they found most intriguing is that Android 4.2.2 already has this moniker tacked on at the end. Deductive reasoning suggests their conclusion could be valid.
Of course, it's entirely possible that Google always simply moves the "latest" descriptor to the end of each version until the next one comes out, even if it is just an incremental update. Without a time machine, there's no way to know for sure, but it is entirely possible they are correct and 4.2.2 is the final version before Key Lime Pie is launched at Google I/O in May. Since Android 4.2.2 just launched for Nexus devices, we will get a chance to see just how final and bug-free this version is, which could solidify their proposition. What do you guys think?
