Android has taken over the world by storm and the Asian market is one of the biggest users of Android powered devices. A group from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) have asked Google to name the next version of Android with an Asian desert name. As the alphabet “L” is next in line, they suggested it should be “Lassi” (a thick yogurt based drink popular in South East Asia).
Another group of students from IIT Kharagpur wants the name to be “Ladoo” a ball shaped sweet which is very popular in many parts of South East Asia, and is used in almost all festivities. The students are hoping to appeal to Sundhar Pichai, Senior Vice President overseeing Android as he himself is a graduate of IIT Kharagpur.
If you all interested in backing these guys then you can also sign their petition to Google through their Android Ladoo Campaign website. What are your thoughts on the matter, what do you suggest the next Android name should be?
