    Where did this single letter fad come from? Isn't it's official name Lollipop?? We didn't call Kitkat K.

    Okay that is off my chest, I can move on! LOL

    Lmao. Knowing Google the next generation of Android can end up being called anything. L is just safe. I remember everyone was convinced K was key lime pie.

    Its just another letter. I'm sure it will be lollipop or licorice or later m&ms. Name doesn't matter.

    I still think that was the plan but Kit Kat probably came in a bit later and said hey, we'll PAY you to use our name and Google said why not, good marketing :)

    I agree, Android "L" isn't catchy at all.

    Android L is just something Google is calling it, to try to still keep some mystery about the codename. I'm sure it won't be released as "L."

    I just hope they don't throw another curve ball and call it "el" as in "el versiĆ³n actualizada"
    No way I could ever spell that without copy/paste and I'm not quite sure I'd even be able to pronounce it correctly.

    Well, @LoneWolfArcher We are calling it L just because the name of Android's next version is still not decided, rumours across the web about L is just because of the series which is coming from the start F- Froyo , G- Gingerbread, H- HoneyComb, I- Ice-cream Sandwich, J- JellyBean,
    K- KitKat and next is expected to be L- ( it's still not confirmed whats its name going to be) i.e. why we are calling it Android 5.0 or L :p
