It all started with a cupcake — Android Cupcake. After Android Alpha and Android Beta, Google has been naming its Android OS with confectionery code-names in alphabetical order. We’ve had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, and Nougat so far. That was a mouthful.
Now, it may start sounding like we’re in a bake sale, but you might want to wish you were for this year’s Android O. There aren’t that many treats that start with the letter O. Here are some delicious contenders for Android’s next operating system.
There’s no need to wonder. You’ve got to admit: This was probably the first treat you thought of for Android O. And, with good reason. Back in 2013, Google struck a licensing deal with Nestle to name its OS, Android KitKat. It’s tough to tell if they’ll be striking a deal with Nabisco for Oreo this year, but it looks like it’s everyone’s first bet.
None of Android’s operating systems are named after beverages, but this could be a refreshing first. With the big announcement by late summer, who wouldn’t want a couple sips of cold, sweet orange juice?
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
This treat is one of the best cookies that could probably send the classic chocolate chip running. Whoever thought of baking oatmeal into cookies (with raisins or chocolate chips — we don’t judge) was an absolute genius. Not to mention, Android Oatmeal Raisin Cookie does have a ring to it.
Google will be announcing new updates and will be revealing Android O at the Google I/O conference on May 17 to 19, 2017.
