[Discussion] L Stands For…: What’s The Next Build Of Android Going To Be Called?

16

next build of androidBy now, the name of Android’s latest software build, Android 4.4 KitKat, is relatively widespread knowledge. While we all have our own suspicions about why the naming was changed from (or never was) Key Lime Pie, KitKat is definitely the least expected build name of all the previous builds. Now that this build has been revealed, however, our minds naturally start thinking about what Google is going to name the next build of Android though we know that in the tradition of Android the build name is going to start with the letter “L”.

Personal suggestions I had just off the top of my head include:

  • Lemon Meringue Pie (they’ve tried a pie once before, why not again?)
  • Lollipop (a popular one on the Internet)
  • Lemon Cheesecake
  • Lava Cake
  • Any other dessert which uses Lemon

While that’s just a few suggestions, the fact that Google has proven it will make commercial deals with other companies to name their Android builds opens up the discussion a little further. Whether this version of Android ends up being Android 4.5 or the nice round Android 5.0, what do you think the next build is going to be called? Let us know if you think its one of suggestions I’ve made in the poll, or if you think it’s something else, leave us a comment below.

What do you think the next build of Android (starting with "L") is going to be called?

    You ever notice how Google never placed the name KitKat in its 4.4 version. They have the shape and font in the easter egg, but never mention KitKat. I think it may be because they dont want to get sued later in the future when the rights to use the name runs out.
