Let’s Play the Android Name Game!

Let’s Play the Android Name Game!
Jason Leci

First of all, let me start off by saying that Google’s Android has changed the way we perceive Smartphones thanks to the flexibility it provides in terms of improving user interface and availability of apps. The revolution was brought about by Apple with their iOS but since then Android has taken over the mantle and is now the most popular mobile operating platform thanks to its adoption by a good number of manufacturers.



Now this is what I find hilarious. Android’s unparalleled superiority cannot mask the ridiculous names that have been bestowed upon its continuously updated versions. With desserts being the theme, we have had a fair share of ludicrous names by which we come to recognize the operating version in our Android Smartphones. Without further adieu, let’s get the ball rolling –

1.5 Cupcake

1.6 Donut

2.0/2.1 Éclair

2.2 Froyo

2.3 Gingerbread

4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

4.1 Jelly Bean

Now as good as Android is, having such farcical names doesn’t help the OS cause one it. Rather in my book, the brownie points are deducted for this.



The upcoming version of Android, version 5.0, is speculated to be named “Key Lime Pie” for crying out loud! But instead of wasting any more energy of mine on ridiculing it, I have decided to have a go on what the next five versions might be called! So here goes nothing –

6.0 Lemon Tart

7.0 Marshmallow Mousse

8.0 Nougat Bar

9.0 Oatmeal Pudding

10.0 Popsicle

11.0 Quince Fudge


Do share your thoughts on what the next versions of Android would be according to you! And I know it’s a test of of keeping your taste buds in check so my wishes with you all!!


6.0 - molten chocolate cake

7.0 - pineapple upside down cake

8.0 - red velvet cake

9.0 - new york cheese cake



Why no anme for 5.0?? no K.


6.0 - Mochacchino

7.0 - Nutmeg

8.0 - Olive

9.0 - Pizza Crust
