Screenshot from Google developer outs Lollipop for Android 5.0 name

You might recall that for months, Android 4.4 was rumored to be called Key Lime Pie. A Google employee even drew a cartoon revealing as much. Heck, we even saw a notification tray with the icon of a Key Lime Pie. But it was a fakeout. From nowhere, the tech titan announced that it would be using the name of popular candy bar KitKat, which lead to a great series of commercial opportunities for both Google, Nestle and Hershey. The latter makes the chocolate bar in the U.S. while the former produces it everywhere else.
Will history repeat itself and the icon prove to be a fake? Lightning usually doesn't strike twice in the same spot. While you are waiting for Google to announce the name of the next Android build, check out this hilarious clip from Google that we told you about earlier today. Besides Android 5.0, tomorrow could see Google take the wraps off of the Motorola built Nexus 6 smartphone, and the HTC built Nexus 9 tablet.

Lollipop makes way more sense than the other names IMO. It's simpler and easier for users from around the world to mention.

It will be called lollipop as it will suck. The L could also stand for lag IMHO.

why not stick to popular candy names? I'd like Lemonhead myself, love those candies (particularly the chewy Lemonhead and Friends candy, since it has other flavors too like grape, orange, cherry, and apple). Or maybe Laffy Taffy.
