India wants to be considered for the name of the next Android build

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 19:53 posted on

A week ago last Tuesday, Google surprised everyone by introducing Android 4.4 and announcing that it would be called KitKat; before Google made the introduction, it had been assumed that the next build of the Android OS would be 5.0 and would be named Key Lime Pie. But now that Android 4.4 is reality, what will the next build be called...

I think Google could consider Lassi, but Ladoo is taking to an extreme. If ur indian, then I think u know where I'm coming from.

Also all the previous names have been something widespread or I would rather say acknowledged worldwide. "Kit-Kat" is something I bet everyone has known about..atleast those that can afford a smartphone. So Lassi doesn't really fit into that category and might just be overlooked by Google.

If we base a statement on how true or false it is by the green thumbs they get...the world won't be living right.
Well, some of the things he said is true...like having no respect for women. I get tired of seeing rape cases everyday...and he isn't even from India. What would he know of us who cringe at every bad thing Indians do.
I'm strictly against stereotyping...that's an unfair judgement.

Like a big cup of yogurt? If that sounds weird, let me remind you of this thing called "Android 2.2 Froyo."

Lemon Meringue Pie. Since we don't get our Key Lime, maybe we can have something similar.

Ladoo I'm not familiar with, not sure how much of the world is either for that matter. So that may be out. And "Lassi" as a dessert name would be out in the US simply because it's far too reminiscent of the television dog, "Lassie". Just not good dessert material.

My vote would be on Lollipop, or Limoncello.

Oh yeah, because of the cointry's support of android...hey, Android's been selling well in china, why not call the next Android version "Liang Cha(Tea)"? No offence but nobody know wtf a Lassi or lasso or whatever is, and knowing it's a snack from india would just kill android.

subjective, iPhone lag too when accessing sites with photos. in fact my android is smoother and faster due to the much higher spec.

I have nothing against Apple now hope everyone would be happy and confidence with their purchases. Trash talking brand and product that you don't own show that you are not.
