Android OS what next for the silly code names? (suggestion thread)


Prominent Member
Aside from the first 3 examples all later versions of the android OS have been given a codename, usually based on some form of food but not exactly having a really good ring to them, so for a bit of a laugh lets see who can come up with something better which we as other avf members could maybe vote or nominate a stand out example as a winner when the thread has run it's course.


The previous incarnations are as follows :-

1 Android beta
2 Android 1.0
3 Android 1.1
4 Android 1.5 Cupcake
5 Android 1.6 Donut
6 Android 2.0/2.1 Éclair
7 Android 2.2.x Froyo
8 Android 2.3.x Gingerbread
9 Android 3.x Honeycomb
10 Android 4.0.x Ice Cream Sandwich
11 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Surely they ain't too hard to beat! :D

By the way, it is 'Eton Mess'.

Given that they're in alphabetical order, you'd expect it to begin with "K", hence knickerbocker glory has to be a good shout.

After eating all the crap that an android user has 'eaten' so far I'd just keep it simple:

12. Wet Fart.
13. Follow Through

Don't ask what happens next, I really don't know what I'd come up with :rolleyes:

I'd add to that:

14: Upset Belly
15: Doctors appointment
16: Funeral Rites

Diabetes before 16 ;) and it all started with petit four (Android 1.1). Despite later attempted revival by moto of droids, at least we're saved from annoying star war's C3-PO as earlier milestone builds were named Astro boy & bender. "Android" itself is a robot and seems to be liking these deserts. If it ever made past 26 to "Android resurrection", the taste will change and it'll go hunting almost extinct big cats (OSX) in remote cold places (IOS) :p.

Kitkat was a surprise and Mars bar could be the the next in line.
