Google just announced new versions of Android. We already know that Android 5.0 will be know as Jellybean. After that things get interesting - despite the fragmentation issues present in the Android platform, Google appears to have given into their OEMs and instead is going to be embracing it. Starting in 2013 there will be a version of Android for each form factor. Here’s a breakdown:
Android 6.0 for smartphones with 4” or smaller screens will be know as Keylime Pie
4” to 4.5” smartphones will run Android 7.0 aka Lemon Squares
4.6” to 5.0” will run Android 8.0 aka Macaroon
5”+ will run Android 9.0 aka Nanaimo Bar
On the WiFi Tablet side 8” or smaller Tablets will get Android 10.0 Oatmeal Cookie
Android 11.0 Peanut butter cup will be for or 9” WiFi Tablets.
3G Tablets get Android 12.0 aka Quick brownies
4G Tablets get Android 13.0 aka Rice pudding
Devices that don’t fit into any of these will receive Android 14.0 aka Snicker Doodles.
Mmmm, time for me to go make some Snicker Doodles!
Google didn’t specify what other differences there would be between the various versions. Looks like it’s time for Google to make room on their lawn for a bunch of new statues. What do you think?
