Poll results: What do you think will happen after Android Z?

A couple of weeks ago, Google announced Android M, the 13th major iteration of the OS that's used by over 1 billion people monthly. While an Android M Developer Preview is already available to download, the new version of the operating system will not be properly released until later this year.

Recently, a Google official confirmed that the company is planning to roll out major Android releases on a yearly basis. This means that, after Android L (Lollipop) and Android M, Android N will arrive in 2017, Android O is going to be out in 2018, and, eventually, we'll see Android Z in 2026.

As you probably already know, Google is giving each major version of Android a specific confectionery-themed name (Android M doesn't have one, though it will get it later this year). But what will happen after Android Z is released? We made a poll asking you this question, and it turns out that over half of respondents (53.31%) believe that Google will find another naming scheme for the Android versions coming after Z. There are also many voters (21.66%) who think that Android itself will be renamed.

Sure enough, there's a long way to go until Android Z is released (if it's released), and a lot of things can change until then. What do you think will happen to Android in the next decade?

What do you think will happen after Android Z?

Google will find another naming scheme
Google will start all over from A
Android itself will be renamed
I've no idea / I have my own theory which I'll share in the comments

I think he is not awared that around 80% market is captured by android. He proves that iOS users are FROGS OF A WELL, who are never awared of what the world of technology is all about.

He's a troll, but actually he's an Android troll. An Android fan, trying to give iFanboys a bad name by pretending to be a complete idiot. I mean, nobody could actually be THAT stupid to think the stuff he says, right?

What about Linux/GNU/Debian/Ubuntu then? Maybe its touchUI will be up to pair on mobile devices by then, without Dalvik or similar to run prgs on. :P

By the time Android Z is around, I'm very positive that it will be the best OS in existence. Look at what Android accomplished in half a decade.

If Google continue to survive until that day, I think Android will start a new naming cycle. It will be named after something else, not dessert anymore.

Android and ios will combine, assimilate windows phone and release a new os that can be used to toast bread. Then they will reveal that's it's all a ruse and reveal that it's symbian all along. My theory ..

Android and iOS will indeed merge into one, and a new chapter unfolds and the plot thickens even more...

So Android will take CPH4, get some inhumane powers and sh*t, then experience something that only can happen with tons of drugs, then become God? Mindblown.
