    KLP may not bring many changes this year, in fact we may not see significant changes for at least two years according to this:

    Ok, and iOS innovates at what pace compared to Android, oh yeah much, much, much slower. In fact iOS has to rip off Android and WinMobile so much that it looks like a love child from those two. Still if they are going to make a major overhaul let it be while they can properly build it out.

    This rumor has nothing to do with iOS but I guess you had to get that rant out and chose this thread.

    Eh, it's not that big of a deal really. Average consumers are just now getting used to the UI that 4.0 presented. If Google refines, changes some colors, etc, I'll be fine with waiting until 2015 for something radically different.

    Google already proved that they can do big updates without updating the OS with a revamp. That might be were the future is going.

    I doubt this. As good as Android's design is, it's almost two years old. Google will not wait four years to keep the OS up to date visually.

    I would expect some fairly substantial visual changes with 5.0, with the 'contextual' OS elements coming in 5.1 or even 6.0. Matias Duarte has made clear that android still isn't where he wants it, and some of the more obscure elements of 4.1-4.3 (like the clock app, for example) give an idea of possible directions it may go.
