Google’s sweet treat turned out to be just a sweet treat

Well, it’s the day after Google promised a sweet treat and they delivered just that…a sweet treat. The surprise turned out to be simply a birthday cake decorated with almost all the desserts Android has been named after since launching back in 2008.

The tweet sent out from the @Android account looks like this:

The desserts are pretty much all covered – Donut, Eclair, FroYo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice-Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow and of course Nougat. Technically there’s no Cupcake there, but the cake itself is a pretty big cupcake itself so surely it counts.

It’s not the treat we wanted, but it does technically cover the base of being a treat. Well, back to looking forward to October 5th, Hiroshi Lockheimer sure is and he thinks it will be as important as the initial announcement of Android 8 years ago:

We’ll find out soon enough

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
