The next version of Android will be Kit Kat according to the announcement this morning. The progression of names for Android releases have – except for the first two – been dessert themed, so with L the next dessert up for naming. I really would like to put forward Lamington as my preference for the next Android version name.
There are of course a number of different options for desserts that begin with the letter L that Google could consider, but being Australian, I would love to see Lamington being used as the name of the next version of Android and apart from Lamington, there’s not a huge amount of desserts starting with L to consider :
- Lemon Meringue Pie – Hey, we never got Key Lime…
Of course, all new Android versions are launched with a piece of reference hardware, usually of a Nexus device – Dream, Droid/Milestone and Xoom are exceptions – and this then leads to the possibility that if an Android release were to be named after an Australian dessert where else would be the best place to launch that device than right here in Australia? Sydney Harbour makes for a beautiful backdrop.
Of course, if Google wishes to go with another trade-marked brand name they could always go with Life Savers ;). Sound off in the comments – Lamington or is there another dessert starting with L that the next version of Android could be called?
