Once KitKat arrived we all kind of forgot about Android 5.0 because it suddenly leaped so far into the future it practically disappeared over the horizon. But with Google I/O coming up on June 25th, a few are starting to forecast a major new Android version appearing alongside Android Wear. So we want to know is: what do you think it will be called?
The most popular name so far seems to be either Lollipop or Lime Pie, which may just be a kindness considering everyone thought Android 4.4 would be called Key Lime Pie. But Licorice has a few people on board, as does Lemon Meringue, but considering the corporate tie-in opportunity that KitKat offered, it seems possible that we may see another brand-name in the next iteration of the world's most popular mobile platform. As an Australian, I'm holding out hope for Lamington, but I somehow doubt it. Likewise, many of our Indian readers are keen on Lassi or Ladoo but they are probably just as unlikely. Either way, an ''exotoc'' name is hardly going to affect adoption of the new version.
So we ask you: what do you think the next Android version will be called? We've got our top picks above, but if your naming suggestion doesn't appear be sure to let us know in the comments (and give your favorites a thumbs-up)! We don't have any prizes for a correct guess, but at least you'll be able to refer back to this article to prove to your friends just how ''on the pulse'' you truly are.
