    According to the latest last minute rumors, Google's next version of Android will be called Lollipop and will be iteration 5.0.

    To help refresh your memory, and/or rekindle some lost nostalgia, here's a quick list of the versions of Android:

    • Android 4.4 Kitkat
    • Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • Android 2.2 Froyo
    • Android 2.0-2.1 Eclair
    • Android 1.6 Doughnut
    • Android 1.5 Cupcake
    • Android 1.1 (no dessert name)
    • Android 1.0 (no dessert name)
    Obviously there's no way to confirm this news, except for the event which will start in about two hours...

    SO glad they went with Lollipop over Tootsie Pop or BlowPop. No more product endorsement branding please!

    If the Google I/O conference is indication, it looks like Google is dropping the dessert naming convention from Android. The next iteration of Android (5.0) appears to be called simply Android L.

    In other words, "we haven't found a partner for naming rights, yet"

    Also, this could be confused with Roman numerals - L means "50" not "5.0"
