Android N officially revealed to be Nougat

Android N officially revealed to be Nougat
The speculation and guessing is finally over. We have all wondered what the official tasty sweet treat name of Android N would be and Google has officially announced the name. And, like it or not, Android N will officially named Android Nougat. Nougat was one of the top options guessed by many, but it didn't really have the biggest following.

At Google I/O, CEO Sundar Pichai announced that Google would be taking user submitted names for the next version of Android, and also made it clear that the name would not be Namey McNameface. The loudest contingent of fans has been hoping that the name of Android N would be Nutella, but it appears that Android KitKat might end up being the only branded version of Android. There was also speculation that Pichai had opened up the naming to a vote in order to be able to name Android N after a South Indian dessert called 'Neyyappam', which had made some english-speakers worried about being able to spell the name. But, now we don't need to worry about that. 

So, we know that Android N is officially Android Nougat. That means the only real mystery left is what version number will be assigned to the update. Given the major addition of splitscreen, it's expected to be Android 7.0, but there is still a small chance it will be Android 6.1. Luckily, we only have a couple more months to wait before finding out.

Man. I would I loved Nutella or even yet, NERDS! Especially how great this version is going to be feature wise, I'm kinda letdown about the decision.

Nutella can't be used because its trademarked by another company. Nougat is a slag for the type of filling inside candy and is a generic name and can be used without fear of being sued. I was hoping Neopolitan.

They used a trademarked name before (KitKat) but they had to license it. I'm guessing they didn't feel the first time was worth it to warrant another go.

More like Noget because a lot of users who aren't rocking the Nexus phones will probably either get N late or won't get it at all. Samsung, LG, and especially Motorola.

I win our battles all of the time, so I must be doing pretty well at my day job.

No, you just collect your troll tokens until I'm done roasting you.

That token bit is really lame now. And it's extremely ironic, considering this entire site considers you a master troll.

86. Mxyzptlk unregistered

The only thing that's lame is you, and that's what she said. Whatever, get your troll tokens.

87. meanestgenius

Your mom would never say I'm lame. Now, her saying that about your dad is a totally different story. Lmao! And of course you'd say whatever. That's because you know deep in your gut that you are the troll that everyone here knows you to be.

89. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Lol, it's funny you thinking your petty insults about my family is supposed to phase me. Keep trying there, slick. If that's what you want to believe. Meanwhile, you're too busy sitting in a room of fire drinking coffee and being ok with the events that are unfolding currently.

What's even funnier is that they do phase you. That's why you mentioned it. But don't let the truth get in the way of the good lie you just told. And that's what everyone KNOWS, but you're too busy with your fingers stuck in your ears screaming "lalalalalalala!!" to even notice the truck about to run you over.

94. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Whatever, I can't change your delusional mind back to reality. Aka, I've been stumped because I know Mxy is right.

Says I'm delusional, and yet thinks he isn't the biggest troll on this site. The irony! Nah, more like you're a trolling idiot that exists on this site just to spew BS.

98. Mxyzptlk unregistered

But you're spewing bs right now. You're completely delusional.

99. meanestgenius

If you were enjoying your fourth, you wouldn't bother trolling a phone site today. But don't let the truth get in the way of a good story, moron. Carry on, dumb-phone user, oops...I mean, iPhone user.

He would, but the battery died and he has to wait to recharge.

That battery recharge joke is outdated, just like 90% of android phones.
