Android 5.0 Teaser
We’re oh so close. Android L is rumoured to be launched tomorrow morning, and it seems like even Google doesn’t know what the L version of Android will be called (Lemon Meringue Pie? Lava Cake? Lady Finger? Lemon Drop?….Lollipop?). In this video shared by Sundar Pichai on Google+ this morning the casting call for the dessert to front the next version of Android is on.

There’s all those desserts in there, including an Oreo (no seriously, watch the video).

With the maker of the Android Lawn statues currently at the Googleplex, we’re surely going to know what the next version of Android is very soon…but seriously if it isn’t Lamington we’re gonna lodge a protest.

    At the end of the Video there are several things on the buffet
    Cupcake (1.5)
    Donuts (1.6)
    Eclair (2.0.x / 2.1)
    Froyo (2.2.x)
    Gingerbread (2.3.x)
    Honeycomb (3.x.x)
    Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.x)
    Jelly Bean (4.1.x / 4.2.x / 4.3.x)
    …and a plate of Lady Fingers (German:Löffelbiscuit).

    No Licorice, no Lollipop, no Lava Cake and no Lemon Meringue Pie!
    (Also no KitKat but I think this is because of trademark issues.)


    No mention of Lamington in the vid.


    Lime Spider

    I thought I read somewhere the guy who makes the android lawn ornaments give hints towards licorice via twitter?

    Lollipop is the smartest bet because it’s a fun name which will appeal to both sexes.

    Since the iPhone has gone all girlie with it’s icons, it’d be the smart move by Google to ensure the name also appeals to girls—Lollipop is the only L name which properly achieves this.

    No Licorice!

    I’m not that the only once that doesn’t find licorice ‘sweet’.
