Will the next Android build be called Licorice?

Android logoWe know that the next build of Android is going to be Android L. There have been various guesses as to what the "L" will stand for. Keeping with Google's use of dessert names, the next build of the tech giant's open source OS could be Lollipop or Lemon Meringue Pie. But a new challenger has come to the surface, and there is a good reason to believe that the next build of Android will be called Licorice.

This is all based on a Google+ post made by Giovanni Calabrese. And just who is he, and what is his importance to our tale? Well, Mr. Calabrese just so happens to be one of the designers behind those great statues of the Android build names that populate the Googleplex in Mountain View. In his post, Calabrese says, "I never had a great liking for Licorice, but damn! there are some great flavors out there !!!" Is it just a coincidence that the person who helps design these statues, and probably has inside knowledge about what Google will call the next Android build, writes licorice with a capital "L"?

To celebrate its 16th birthday, Google recently sent out a picture of a birthday cake adorned with lollipops on top. And while that could be a clue, right next to the lollipops on the top of the cake is a strand of licorice!

Google did a great job hiding the fact that it was talking with Nestle about using the KitKat name for the "K" build of Android. Most people were expecting Google to call the build Key Lime Pie, so it was a huge surprise when the KitKat name was announced. Is Google going to come up with another name out of left field, or is the post by Giovanni Calabrese telling us everything we need to know?
