    Get ready for this folks... Android M's internal codename is rather unwieldy... Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). Of course, sometimes the internal codename for Android doesn't end up mirroring the retail marketing name that the OS is finally dubbed, so it is entirely possible that name will change.

    Really though, as Shakespeare's own Juliet once queried... "What's in a name?" For most Android fans, what matters is what the OS can do for us, not whatever marketing slogan adorns its cover. Luckily, we have a few hints regarding that for you today as well, including the release timeframe, which is probably sometime in August. On top of that, Android M will supposedly be more memory and energy-efficient. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    What do you guys and gals think?

    I don't hate many things.

    If this becomes official, I will hate with great gusto.

    I have a feeling folks will feel the name about the same as they do the update itself. I've never heard 1 complaint about the name lollipop but gobs about the update itself. Kit Kat got a pretty good response both for the name and update itself, Gingerbread was neutral on name but a horrid update.
    Macadamia Nut Cookie? Really? There are so many other desserts and sweets that start with M. I just hope the update is better than the name and isn't just a rehash of lollipop with an ios9 flair with a mild attempt at Windows8

    Never knew there was such a thing.

    By the way, one poster said Marshmallow ... probably a good guess, but open to joking about a "soft" OS. ;)
