Google starts asking for help naming Android N, but Nutella isn’t even considered?!


What kind of tasty treat could ever beat and ultimately replace Marshmallow on Android phones, tablets and smartwatches worldwide? Nutella seems to be both the frontrunner among Pocketnow’s editorial team and our readership, but Nougat follows closely behind, and Neapolitan is a not-so-distant third.

Meanwhile, you know Google’s going to take great pleasure in tormenting, teasing and trolling us for the next few months, until finally revealing the alternative sweet moniker of Android N as… Nachos?

That can’t be right, since a salty snack has never before ruled the world’s most popular mobile OS ecosystem. Besides, tortilla chips covered with cheese or cheese-based sauce are hardly good for you, and it’s about time Big G elected a more nutritious refreshment. Like, maybe, nori? No, come on, that’s still not sugary and sweet, not to mention it probably looks weird to the unaccustomed eye.

The other top contenders might be Napoleon (the French pastry, not the Emperor), Nut brittle, Noodles, Nougat (at last, a sensible option), and Neapolitan ice cream (too long), at least according to a multiple choice question posed on Google Opinion Rewards.

Android N questions

Wait, no Nutella? Nocciola? Nerds? Plain Neapolitan? Nice try, Google, but we’re not falling for this. We still remember that hilarious but misleading Lava Cake, Lady Finger, Lemon Meringue Pie and… Oreo-starring video that lacked the actual Lollipop headliner.

On the other hand, if you’re a member of the Google Opinion Rewards program and get an N-related question where you can give any answer that comes to mind, treat it very seriously. It’s likely not a drill or trick, and it may be considered by whoever calls the OS version-naming shots.
