    I never expected this but the guys over at Engadget recently interviewed Erick Tseng – Senior Product Manager of Android.. where he dished up some delicious info. The next version of Android will be called Froyo -* short for frozen yogurt!Very interesting indeed! Personally I had my bets on the F being Flan considering [...]

    Eh...Is Frodo a dessert? Nah! That's a man from Lord of the Rings!

    Think of a dessert that starts with an "F."

    Mmm... I love chocolate cupcake with some vanilla ice cream and some mini-M&Ms. :)

    Hey, anybody for chocolate frozen yogurts!? :)

    Yeah, but Froyo is not a dessert either. At least, Frodo is recognizable. Froyo could be anything. It could be a yo-yo in someone's Fro. Or it could be a guy with a Fro saying, "Yo!"

    Know what I mean?

    True, but isn't all those code names all about desserts, like cupcake?

    Froyo = Frozen Yogurt

    Eclair is a dessert. In Google, while I typed "eclair," I saw "eclair cake," "eclair recipe," etc.

    But do you mean "Frodo" as in "Frozen donuts?" I came up with those two words logically.

    I still thought Flan would've taken the cake. :p But I guess they like two-syllable names.

    Froyo? Probably the only reason they they switched from Flan to Froyo is so the next release could be called Gelato.... OK what tasty treat starts with H?

    As a matter of fact hot bonanas ARE deep fried. Hence the term: Hobo.
