I can't wait for the Droid Bionic to be released, hopefully with 2.3 Gingerbread if not 2.4 Icecream. Btw, what is up with the OS version names? Eclair, gingerbread, icecream, honeycomb? What's next, lasagna, orange chicken?

Dount
Eclair
Froyo
Gingerbread

Applesauce, Google calls their operating system after "tasty treats"- cupcake, donut, Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread. I think you are right that J will be Jelly Donut. I think that Jello or Jello pudding would have issues with copyright.
