What do you think Android N will end up being called?

Android Alpha, Beta, Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow. Anything strikes you as consistent there? Yep, Google is obsessed with desserts and dedicates each major Android version to one. But that's not all—the naming scheme is alphabetical, so the first letter of each subsequent release is guaranteed. So we know that following Marshmallow, we've got a dessert starting with 'N' in the works.

Likely to be released at some point in 2016 (read: at Google I/O, most probably), Android N has already entered the rumor phase, and we even have a selection of likely features to follow. Obviously, we can't be absolutely sure about anything right now, including the name. But keeping with what has morphed into a kind of tradition over here at PhoneArena, it's time we once again play a game of dessert names. We source a number of likely dessert names, and you do the picking. After all, Google CEO Sundar Pichai did (jokingly) suggest that Android N's name might be community-sourced through an online poll. This is our chance, boys and girls, let's give Mr. Pichai something to think about!

What do you think Android N will end up being called?

They could go for Nutella. Just like they did with KitKat. Or they could go for Neapolitan cakes, which are always good as well.

Hope so too, but once again PA fails to research. Google said they will most likely have an open poll/suggestion for N.

Fragmentation > forced updates with complaints of piss poor performance (iOS) + users on fire + relying on multiple accounts for upvotes

Actually it is better... in fact ever since Google Services and Manufacturers Apps are disengaged from Core OS firmware, fragmentation is almost a non-issue for most people.... Long after my current device is left without System Updates, my services and apps will still be updated... and other people iPhone's will crawl with the most recent iOS version that also lacks most of the features....

Haha, that'll be the best desert ever. Streamline Android like Windows and OEM skins/drivers would be XPosed-like apps.

How many app are require Marshmallow (API level 23)? Fragmentation is a label that lot of tech writers use to get hits on their websites. Not one of them have gone into to detail as to how not upgrading to specific version of android impacts other than what google advertises as addons to those versions (ignoring the fact that most manufacturers either have those features already or does not use them in their own release)
