Hot on the heels of the year’s biggest Apple event, there’s been plenty of conjecture on what the latest Android OS, until now codenamed Android L, will be called.
Some say it’s Lollipop, others insist Lemon Meringue Pie, yet the latest rumour is that the newest offering will be called Android Lion. Doesn’t sound very sweet, you might say, but bear in mind Lion Bars are a popular confectionary, made by Nestle, with whom Google partnered for the shock Android KitKat unveiling earlier this year.
The source of these rumours comes from the EMT Leaks Twitter account, so like any leak it has to be taken with a pinch of salt. Regardless, Android L will be available later this quarter, with the developer preview available now – but what other key talking points will the autumn bring?
