    At Google I/O this year, Google focused on developers for Android, and because of this they left some things out of the conference, most notably any new Nexus device and/or Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie. It was probably a strategic decision to hold off until later, as well as give Google more time to refine and polish the next iteration of Android. Of course that leaves us wondering when Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie will finally hit the ground running, but we haven't heard a peep about that really... until today.

    Just this morning the media was tipped that Google will probably be launching Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie in October. The news tip also shared some details about the requirements for the OS, and that it will probably be coming on a new Nexus device. Additionally, this timeframe pegs the launch to be around the same time as the previously rumored launch of the Moto X Phone. Here's a quote with a few of the details,

    It looks like Android fans are going to have a great reason to have a Halloween party! DancingNexus

    I guess it would be too much to hope for a good/official update for devices who have reached EOL. I hope there's a chance, but I'm not holding my breath. My heart did skip a beat when I read this, though.

    LOL, I knew we would see that oddball 3gigs of ram - it's more than 2, but it's not 4!

    Also, needing 512megs of ram would likely only be backward compatible with devices running stock Android. Any phone with a mfr UI probably wouldn't cut it, if they'd even push an update in the first place.

    I don't care how much RAM or what kind of processor is in the next Nexus (although those are looking mighty fine) as long as the damn things supports LTE I will be happy.

    No mention of an SD card, likely because there isn't one

    Seems weird to me, why do a flagship Nexus 5 and forget about the fantastic budget phone the brand is known for. I think it's more probable that the IS the X, which isn't very probable at all since Motorola doesn't have it in them. For google to outsource to a Moto competitor a phone that would certainly crush the X that is leaked as we know it no matter what creepy features it has. Snap 800 and 3gig of ram are flagship sell-points all on their own, no gimmicks necessary.

    How's Tmo's service in your area?

    I live in a rural area of West Michigan, so all cellphone signal is pretty weak in most areas, especially right on the lake. However, where I work gets great 4G reception for Verizon and I generally get pretty good signal everywhere.

    As for Tmo, I'm not exactly sure. I haven't heard the greatest things about reception in my area, but I'm really hoping that Tmo takes off and expands their coverage area as they acquire new customers.

    A work colleague of mine brought in his daughter's Tmo phone to test it out (he's very analytical about everything), and he seemed mostly pleased with the reception. He also plans to jump on the Tmo train when his Verizon contract is up in November (he got the GNex at launch as did I).

    So, as I said, I only expect that it will get better around me as it grows in popularity. Worse comes to worse, I will have no contract and can drop it anytime I want. Seems to be a win/win scenario for me regardless.

    How about you?
