I really was expecting Key Lime Pie. Wonder how much the licensing fees were?

And there is going to be a limited edition bar, with a chance at winning a Nexus tablet and other prizes.

Give me a break. :) This should be good for some Google play credit.

Here is more on the deal, but of course "terms were not disclosed."

"Back in the day" code words were generated by adults.

 

One particular set of machines I worked on had prototype codenames of "Star", "Comet", "Nebula" and "Atlas".  (DEC's codenames for the VAX-series computers in the late 1970s through mid 1980s)

 

Microsoft had names like "Chicago" and "Longhorn".

 

Google sounds like they're trolling kids in candy stores.  And I *like* Google!

I personally think they are better names than Saucy Salamander or Raring Ringtail.

 

I don't think there's anything wrong with them having a bit of fun with it. The version number can be used to identify it.

Traditionally, Android code names have followed the names of deserts, so having a candy bar name makes sense.

If they were names of deserts, they should have gone Gobi, Sahara, Mojave, ...

Desert or desserts? Only worlds of difference. (face palm)
