Android L to stand for... answer might be coming tomorrow

Android L to stand for... answer might be coming tomorrow
Android L is coming this fall, but what is it going to be: Lollipop, Lemon Meringue Pie, or something else altogether that we haven’t heard before? It seems that Google won’t be able to hide the secret much longer: a passer-by has noticed that the place in front of the Googleplex with all the candy-inspired Android version statues is being prepared for a newcomer.

There’s also a note saying that Google will do some work in the area on Saturday, September 6th, and it seems almost certain that this is about the erection of the new L statue.

To recap, we should say that all the latest leaks and rumors agree on the Lemon Meringue Pie (LMP) name and Android version 5.0. While we’ve earlier heard about Google seriously considering the Lollipop name, that rumor seems to have faded as the company might have reconsidered in an attempt to evade eventual trademark lawsuits.

Whatever the next Android candy is, the answer might be unveiled tomorrow.

It is possible they might bring some new features like multi windows etc in the final build right? I mean it is just preview they showed back in IO. Well I hope they do.

Lollipop is probably best, unless they have a better one. Lemon Meringue Pie I don't like. Lava Cake was pretty good.

Lol, we still have a long way to go for that one. That's a lot of OS updates.

First they'll start with numbers, then special characters (smileys). When they've done all available combos, we're live on some different planet, fly with our "cars" etc.

Already liking the material design done on Chrome 37 on the Play Store. Can't wait to use Android L on whatever phone it comes out on first!
