Well, it turns the rumor was half-correct: It s more of a suggestion box than a poll.

Google wants to hear your what you ve got at android.com/n.On stage at I/O 2016, Dave Burke, vice president of engineering for Android, said Google reserves the right to choose the final name.

So the name for Android N won t be chosen based on your vote, per se, but your submissions will be taken into consideration.

Yeah, Google loves the Web and all, but it s not about to let crowdsourcing handle its marketing.Since Android 1.5, Google has named each version of its mobile operating system after a sweet food — moving sequentially through the letters of the alphabet.

The tradition started more than six years ago.

A Google Opinion Rewards survey from March included these options: Napoleon, Nut brittle, Nachos, Nori, Noodles, Nougat, and Neapolitan ice cream.I m stubbornly holding out for Android Nutella, despite the trademarking work it would require.
