Android nicknames

It's the eve of Google I/O, and we've been promised a taste of the next version of Android during tomorrow's keynote address. (You've got our liveblog bookmarked, right?) So let's have a little fun. What do you think the "L" version of Android will be? Lollipop? Licorice? Lemon? Lima Bean?

Give us your guess in the comments. If a new nickname is announced tomorrow — and that's not a given, folks — then we'll round up those who guessed right and pick two at random to receive a little something something from us. Given that it's I/O, figure it'll be a Nexus of some sort. (Hell, we'll even let you choose — phone or tablet.) If no name is announced, then we'll pick three people at random to win a device.

Just because we can.

Good guessing, and good luck!

It'll be android lychee or android ladoo, I'd say.

brivayla says:

Lava cake!!

Lard!

I would like to choose Lemon Pie, bcz google always uses names like that in previous releases ( gingerbread, froyo,cupcake,kitkat,jelly bean, ice cream sandwich.....) so my guess it's gonna be Lemon Pie

Lollipop for sure

Google will be skipping the letter "L" and going to "M" and it will be "Milky Way".

Knudroid says:

I think it's going to be licorice.
I'm pretty sure they'd want to stay away from any name with lemon in it

stevemasta34 says:

I think Google will combine the name L and M for "Lemon meringue". Because of the 4.x running as it has been

Lemon Pie
Lemon Cheesecake
Lava cake
Liquorice
Lemon drop

tfrankson says:

Lollipop

I think Lollipop followed by licorice. Outside the USA nobody knows what lifesavers or Lemonheads are, which is the reason Key lime pie was dropped.

I tried posting twice to this on the app but neither went through. So once again Android Leaf is my pick. Although I have this strange feeling that they will just call it L for the keynote lol
