    One of Google's VPs, Hiroshi Lockheimer, keeps dropping hints that the final dessert name for Android N will be Nutella. His latest "tease" posted on Twitter above is pretty obvious. In the past he has made it known that he likes Nutella and wants it to be the Android N name. The answer to his clue in the Tweet is more than likely the Nutella Pizzetta. This time, Google created a contest in which Android fans will vote on the final name, so Lockheimer may not get his wish.

    Lockheimer is also infamous as an online joker, so it's entirely possible that he is simply trolling us with this teasing. Android N could end up being called Nougat or Navy Bean. Alternatively, the ultimate back-flip "trolling" would be if he convinced us that the name was NOT going to be Nutella by spamming us with it, but then it really ends up being named Nutella. Perhaps we are getting trolled either way...

    to tell the truth, i'm over the names of the os versions. most of the people don't even know what is out there. just stick to the number and forget about the name.

    Yeah it's truly going to stand for NOT able to uninstall bloatware.
    Look I know most iPhone users could care less about that but it truly is a step in the right direction for what Android has been most known for; user selectivity. Being forced to select defaults Ann's other stuff we love about Android is stuff many iOS users find "too complicated" and stick with their current platform. Add in fragmentation, slow carrier and manufacturer updates and the Google needs to stop being silent after an Apple public event. Doing some pr stunt hinting at a name for the next rendition of Android os does nothing to help those of us that are still waiting on the prior version with little expectation of it arriving any time soon.

    I love that Crapple added the ability to remove bloatware
