    All these dratted version names are driving me crazy! Someone please provide a list of what these names - Gingerbread, Eclair, Honeycomb, Froyo, etc. mean in terms of version numbers. Which came first the Honeycomb or the Gingerbread? AaaRrrGggHhh!

    Thanks very much,

    I don't think there really is a reason. Perhaps one of the developers was eating a cupcake and thought it would be cool. Software has a long history of odd version names. Everything right through girls names, animals, muppets and sweet treats has been used. It's just a bit of fun. Anything's better than a boring old number.

    Given all the sugar in the previous releases, it should be called insulin.

    KitKat?

    KitKat would prob be a trademark issue, so im guessing key lime pie

    adi19956 Well-Known Member

    not very... snappy/catchy though is it... I thought about the trademark thing but it'd be pretty cool!
    they couldn't change one beginning with C could they? like... Kookie?

    KeyLime sounds like a android version name to me, that would be funny as chiz if it were
    to work out that way.

    adi19956 Well-Known Member

    yeah I can see Keylime I suppose. still it won't be until 2012 or even 2013 so we don't have to worry too much :)

    For K how about Knickerbocker Glory. Doesn't really sound much like an android version name but it is an amusing word if you have the mental age of a 6 year old (like me)

    HAHA I'd love to see that! It does sound like a good name for firmware...
