Android M: Will They Officially Call It Macadamia Nut Cookie?
Later this week, Google will be holding its annual I/O developer conference, where there is a high chance the tech giant will be unveiling Android M, the successor to Lollipop.
What will Google call it this time? What tasty confection will it be known as? Marshmallow? Mocha? Mint? Marzipan? The choice is endless. But Android Police reports that the new Android might likely be called Macadamia Nut Cookie, as it is currently being referred to now by internal sources.
Ryan Whitwam writes, “There have been whispers about the MNC name for a while now, but only recently has it started popping up in AOSP as ‘mnc-dev.'”
There is the possibility, though, that the name will still change. Android users might remember that Google used Lemon Meringue Pie before Lollipop, and Key Lime Pie before Kitkat. Perhaps a three-word name (such as Macadamia Nut Cookie, and with the exception of Ice Cream Sandwich) serves as Google’s way of temporarily naming their versions?
