Though it seemed to most of us that Google I/O 2014 would be too early in the year to reveal the next version of Android, according to an interview with Android and Chrome head Sundar Pichai this week will be the time we hear about Android's "L" release. The interview, done with Bloomberg Businessweek, reveals Pichai's intentions to talk intensively about the next version of Android at Google's yearly developer conference.
This year, Pichai will preview the next release (Lollipop? Lemonhead?) for the first time at I/O rather than waiting until the fall. It's a significant shift toward greater transparency. "I want the world to understand what we are doing sooner," he says.
The interview also explains that Pichai only really started planning his I/O 2014 schedule earlier this month, noting that he often goes down to the last minute when deciding what products will or won't be announced at events. Well, now we know we're set to hear at least something official on the L release — we can't wait.
