What will Google name the next version of Android OS?


We are all pretty familiar with the Google naming scheme for Android - alphabetical, with each new version named after some sweet thing. For example, H=Honeycomb, I=Ice Cream Sandwich, J=Jellybean, K=KitKat. So next we will have L. While I'm strongly supporting LolaBelle as the next name, that might be a stretch. What do you think Google will call the next version of Android?

Hmmmm, I can't think of that many "L" candies or sweets. Maybe Lemondrop, but a "lemon" is something that doesn't work as intended in automotive terms, so they would likely avoid that one. Licorice would please me, since I like it, but a lot of people don't and I doubt Google wants to elicit a "yuck" reaction. That leaves Lollipop on my short list. It sounds fun, it fits with the theme, and I've never met any actual lollipop haters. So the official Ehtan prediction is...Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Well if the folks at Google fans of Game of Thrones perhaps they will call it "Lemon Cake" after Sansa Stark's favorite dessert food. ;)
