After alpha & beta, Android has named every OS they produced after a confectionary or a sweet items. Right from Cupcake, Donut, Eclair to Jelly Bean, KitKat and Marshmallow, all Androids have been named after some or the other sweet dish in an alphabetical order.When you read these names, in particular, you immediately begin to feel a craving for certain things. More importantly, you will know that the operating system that is available is an advanced option that is very easy to use.The names you have read about over all this time have been used since 2009 when Android 1.5 was known as the Cupcake operating system. Such names have been used over the years including Donut, Éclair, Ice Cream Sandwich, Marshmallow and most recently Nougat.Needless to say, it is believed that another similar name will be used for Android O when it is released. The operating system will be released at some point in 2017. The options for a name that could fit in well with the platform are unclear, but there are many possible names that could be used. These range from many traditional and noticeable names to ones that might be a little different but still worth something. Of course, you might come across an Android logo that looks like a certain confectionery product in the marketing campaign just as well.
Oreo Phones? Sounds Great!
When Android 4.4 KitKat was released, it was clear that there was no limit as to what names Android would use. Android got in touch with Nestle to stage a promotional campaign that would benefit both brands. This entailed special KitKat-related offers and promotions that were directly linked to the new operating system.
The Orange – A Tried and True Sweet for Any Occasion
The orange is just a simple and sensible thing that is sweet and healthy, but it is also a fruit that has been the basis of many treats. Just about all types of fruit-related candies have had some orange flavour to them. These include orange slices and orange jellybeans and gumdrops among other great candies. Orange has also been important for soft drinks in that orange soda is a very popular drink for all to enjoy.
Oranges are found all around the world and are loved by all kinds of people. Therefore, an orange name could be used when getting a great name added. This is an especially popular name choice that is worth looking into.
Can a Phone Be As Tasty As An Oatmeal Cookie?
The oatmeal cookie is one of the most popular types of cookies around. The light texture of the cookie and its unique flavour make it a popular choice among all kinds of people. This could be a great idea to consider for a new name, what with the cookie being relatively popular.
Ontbijtkoek…..say that again?
As funny as the name sounds, the Ontbijtkoek literally translates to pepper cake! Now that’s a deliciously spicy sweet dish. It was originally call the ‘peperkoek’ and used to be prepared using leftover cake products, and then pressing them together to make it look like a cake, after which it was augmented with black pepper, in order to hide the age of the bread used.
Pepper was the most valuable Dutch East India Company trading products; subsequently it became a part of the Dutch culture and a part of Dutch food products too. A very large portion of the Dutch East India Trading Company handled pepper trade.
What About Something That Isn’t Confectionery-Related?
By something non-confectionary related, we mean Oregano. A mixture of spices and herbs, used a standard topping in pizzas all over the world. Oregano is sweet and salty and little bit spicy. So is going to be the Android ‘O’ – The name might as well be exactly suitable for an OS quite fit to be used all over the world as the favourite. Who knows Google may even break all the stereotypes to get the name for its most dynamic OS yet.
Android could also go a little closer to the United States with the Ozark Pudding name.Android could also go a little closer to the United States with the Ozark Pudding name. Ozark pudding is a fruit custard dessert that is particularly dried out before it is served. This is a delicious treat that features a light flavour and has especially been known to be loved by people around the middle part of the United States. It was especially a favourite dessert of President Harry Truman. It is true that this name isn’t all that well-known, but it could still be a good option if Android chooses to stick with it.
Good Oh Henry!
As interesting as it name sounds, the bar was named after a boy named Henry who’d visit the candy making factory to flirt with the girls there. As popular as Henry is today, so could the name become if Google decides to take to the finalisation stage.
The brand is currently owned by Nestle in the US and could be another partnership opportunity for Google and Nestle. Both companies have benefitted in the past, with a mutual agreement.
Orelletes, That Name is Lovely
A typical Spanish dessert which travelled with the conquistadors to the entire world, might make an appearance in the Google world as well. The Orelletes were named so because of the moniker ‘Dish with ears.’
The dish is most perfectly blended with the concept of a festival, as Orelletes are a must during any Spanish festival, especially the Entroido (Carnival). Well, the name will definitely make some good for celebrations, cheers!!
How does Android Oliebol sound? Does it sound good? Does it sound bad? Wait, we know how it sounds. Sweet! These sweet little dumplings/donuts are a delicacy in the entire Dutch and Belgian regions. Known as Oliebols, Olykoek, Smoutebollen, Dutchies etc; the Oliebols are definitely a strong contender.
Let’s Try Something a Little More Offbeat
What could be more offbeat the Ox-Tongue Pastry? As gross as the name sounds, there’s no Oxen and their tongues in this devilishly delicious pastry. The Chinese have a thing for naming things a little, off-beat! The Ox-tongue pastry is a little sweet, and is eaten in breakfast along with soy milk. The Chinese Donut sounds nice to name it, but it doesn’t begin with an O. So we’ll be sticking to the Ox-Tongue Pastry.
What Will Come About?
The process of developing the Android operating system is extensive and often tough. The marketing process can be just as challenging. Therefore, it is a necessity to see how a good campaign can be established with a sensible name for the operating system. This is clearly to be made with marketing in mind, but it is also to help create a sensible image for the product that shows that it is different and unique from its predecessors in some way.
The choices that can be used by Android for naming Android O are rather varied and appealing, but it might be a real challenge to see what can be done with it. It will be worthwhile to see what could be used with regards to what the Android O name will be.
