    Android OS version code names...

    Most of us know that the Android version code names have been as follows:

    Cupcake
    Donut
    Eclair
    FroYo
    Gingerbread
    (next slated OS)

    That said, has anyone else noticed that their nomenclature has been ALPHABETICAL? (C,D,E,F,G)

    That makes me wonder if there were code names prior to Cupcake that were "A" and "B" code names? Maybe these were the test versions before Cupcake originally came out?

    Also, what do you folks think will come after Gingerbread!? If they continue their current approach to their code names (alphabetical & desserts/treats), it should begin with the letter "H"!

    Maybe Huckleberry Pie?!

    Mmmmm..... pie

    I was talking to a Google engineer about Android and he said he was running Honeycomb on his Nexus for a bit, but went back to gingerbread because it wasn't really stable yet.

    Who knows, that could just be an internal name they gave it...

    Just some guesses:

    A - Apple Pie
    B - Banana Split

    Little known fact, "froyo" was a popular term on the stanford campus years before it was popularized. Stanford has a lot of these cutesy terms...memchu (memorial church), coho (coffee house), etc.

    H - hotcakes?

    desserts, or morning treats? I realize hazelnut is a flavor of coffee, but it's in line with the morning theme...HoneyRoll?

    Android A and B were prototypes. Never released or announced.
    H is slated as Honycomb.
