M is for Marshmallow

10 am Official Announce_G_FB copy
The next version of Android, Android 6.0 has been officially announced by Google today as Marshmallow. The announcement came along with the final developer preview for Marshmallow as well as an update to the official SDK for Android Developers.

You can be sure that we will be installing the new Developer preview and checking out any new or exciting changes we can find. If you have a Nexus device with the M preview installed you can expect to get the final developer preview as an Over-The-Air

The statue is of course delivered by Giovanni Calabrese from Themendous who has created all the Google statues. The current Marshmallow statue is currently sitting outside building 43 of the Googleplex which is the main building, but will most likely join its friends soon after a few moments alone in the spotlight.

So they are going with 6.0 rather than 5.2 ?

Personally I can’t see any significant jumps to warrant it.

I also still can’t see Nexus 7 in the list of updates – which makes it look they are persisting with the idea of not supporting it going forward – thus handing apple another stick to beat them with. I wonder if they will cut the price of the Nexus 9 sufficiently to make it credible going forward, since there is no replacement on the cards either?

Maybe it has got to do with 5.1 since people don’t see that as a significant update as it kept the lollypop name and if it went to 5.2 it might not be considered significant update either. 5.x is lollipop and I think they want to get past it despite 5.1 is decent.

Hmmm, I might need to figure out a conversion rate for those points 🙂
Looks like a larger Nexus 5 to my -admittedly aging – eyes.
