Key lime pie is the code name given to one of the operating systems in the Android mobile OS series. It was the dessert themed code name given to the Android v 5.0. However, as of September 2013, the code name Key lime pie was replaced with the name KitKat.
Key lime pie was initially intended to name the Android 4.4 as a successor to Android Jelly Bean 4.2. Key lime pie is designed specifically to run seamlessly on mobile platforms having lesser computing resources (Processor / Memory). This is done through implementing a code base and operational architecture from the Linux 3.8 kernel, which is much lighter on hardware resources.
