    I've read a rumor online that Google might ditch the alphabetical dessert names for Android OS with the release of Pie's successor, and start using numbers instead. Since Pie is the 9th version of Android, the upcoming one would be called Android 10 or Android X. Do you think this will happen? If no, what dessert with the letter "Q" do you think will be chosen as the name for the upcoming version?

    No, I don't think it will happen because it's hardly the first time this rumour has circulated (hey, it's the internet: some randomer posts something, one blog picks it up, other blogs copy the first, speculation gets reposted as rumour and rumour gets reposted as fact. And nobody cares as long as it brings in clicks, apart from a few of us who have an obscure, unfashionable attachment to facts).

    My proposal is that since "Pie" only implies a dessert if you are American (I doubt one in twenty Brits thinks of a dessert when they hear the word "pie") for Q they should pick something that's not mainstream in the USA, for balance. Personally I suspect Quesito might get it though (Puerto Rico being an unincorporated US territory it's likely to be more familiar than some of the other candidates).

    Just to add another question, so what if Google does or doesn't? Those cutesy names aren't based on anything practical or substantive, they're just based on marketing and advertising.

    Can I vote for "runcible spoon" as R then?

    (Not a dessert, but the obvious follow-up)

    With an owl and *****cat at the launch event.

    I've already thought about Android X. Xi gua lao :thumbsupdroid:

    Basically watermelon with cherries, agar and sugar.

    BTW here's an AF censoring fail...

    The Owl and the *****-cat went to sea
    In a beautiful pea green boat,
    They took some honey, and plenty of money,
    Wrapped up in a five pound note.
    The Owl looked up to the stars above,
    And sang to a small guitar,
    'O lovely *****! O ***** my love,
    What a beautiful ***** you are,
    You are,
    You are!
    What a beautiful ***** you are!'
