We might learn Android L’s real name next week

A friendly tipster who spent the day at Google’s Mountain View office sent us two photos which seemed to indicate Google is in the process of installing its latest Android statue this Saturday. If so, that would likely mean an official announcement of Android L’s real name as early as next week.

The photos could be faked, but we’re more inclined to believe that the lollypop vs. liquorice vs. lemon meringue pie debate currently underway in the MobileSyrup office will soon be settled.

Everyone place your bets on the final name for Android L before then in the comments.

  • Dennis Ulijn

    Lollipop

  • Donny Chau

    lemon meringue pie

    • BigTimmay

      Too long for OS name.

    • jidery

      Ice Cream Sandwich is just as long. Shortened to ICS.

      Lemon Meringue Pie will simply be called LMP

    • Switch it around and you get MLP and then all the little ponies/bronies/pedos will be crawling all over it. 😛

  • PurpleUrchin

    liquorice…. Just to get it going

  • Ali F.

    French Rolls

  • jigglypuff

    Milfs? oh wait….that doesn’t begin with a L, never mind
    .

    • Plazmic Flame

      I’m already looking forward to the M version of Android!!!

    • Unorthodox

      It’s gonna be Marzipan for sure.

    • bloomtronzero

      Marshmallow

  • Lukeiphone

    Lettuce

  • gmd

    Let’s stay with chocolate from a Swiss company… Lindt.

    • I hate you so much right now. I need to go and buy some Lindt chocolate lol.

    • rgl168

      If Google is staying with the chocolate theme then Lindt would be my choice as well. There is a Lindt outlet about 10 min from my place. 🙂

  • Ian Huey

    Lemon Meringue Pie (LMP). Licorice is nasty. Lollipop could work, but Lemon Meringue Pie sounds more sophisticated 😛

  • Ray

    Loo Roll

  • Jesse

    Lifesavers
    or
    Laffy Taffy

    • Handheld Addict

      I’m guessing they will go with Lifesavers because that’s a brand $$$ name. Umm, the other one might be too, but I’m not too familiar…

    • Alexander Hill

      But unlike KitKat, lifesavers are only sold in the US, and so would be meaningless and wierd-sounding to anyone outside the US. KitKat, on the other hand, is one of the world’s best-selling chocolate products, and has a unique name that couldn’t be mistaken for anything else (obviously lifesavers is an actual word and would confuse anyone who didn’t know they were a brand of sweets)

    Android Laddoo

  • Josh Levent

    Leaks by code showed It is lmp, meaning Lemon Meringue Pie is the real name of the next Android version. They’ve also found through benchmark a Google Nexus X with Android version being “5.0.”

    • ThomasMoneyhon

      Everyone fails to see that could have also meant “L” Material Preview. Either way we will know soon enough

    • Alexander Hill

      Even if it did mean Lemon Meringue Pie, the original KitKat code was full of references to “klp”, which stood for Key Lime Pie. However, they then changed their minds upon discovering that Key Lime Pie was not a well known dessert, but still kept “klp” in the code to throw people off.

  • Jonavin

    lemon drops

  • Jonavin

    Probably won’t be called “Low Fat Yogurt”

  • Matt

    could it be ”Luquid” LOL LOL like the other female blogger put it in the news post yesterday.. It’s spelled Liquid honey

  • Matt

    Liquid female juices :-p

    • Jane McEntegart

      Gross!!

  • A Popov

    Liquor

  • pauletienney

    Lamb sausage

  • Romain

    Limoncello ?

  • Jonathan Schmitt

    Its funny. I went to a conference for work (cell industry) a few weeks back and all the associates there were talking about Android lollipop. They were answering questions to new associates about the name and features – all of which were wrong and unconfirmed. So I eventually pulled out my spare Nexus 4 running L Preview and had to explain that Lollipop is not official and the features that they were talking about did not exist. Fun stuffs.

  • Dear god do they need to shorten the word: “For your information” and “building” that badly? I mean I understand in a cellphone environment but this is reality, there was clearly enough room on that paper to write it down.
    I’m sorry that I’m nitpicking but I hate it.

  • JTon

    I’m thinking it’s going to be another brand name, like Kit Kat. If it wasn’t, the name surely would have been picked before they teased Android L

    • Alexander Hill

      Perhaps it was picked, but they wanted to keep it secret.

  • AmbientCloud

    It’s going to be licorice.

  • dc602

    Lemon Meringue Pie. Next logical progression after Key Lime Pie. Of course it could be “Lifesavers” considering how well the “KitKat” commercial tie-in worked. 😉

    • Alexander Hill

      Lifesavers, unlike KitKat, aren’t nearly well known enough. They aren’t sold outside the US, and considering lifesaver is an actual word, would confuse people if they didn’t know it was a brand name.

  • Victor_Creed

    Labia :p

    • thomas nguyen

      now that is a dessert most people would not turn down, no matter how full after dinner they are

  • thomas nguyen

    i bet 5 banana’s that it will be Lemon Meringue Pie

  • Dano B.

    I was looking forward to finally getting Key Lime Pie

  • Sean

    Leeks.
