Barring any type of primary shakeup at Google’s mobile department, there are two issues we all know evidently concerning the subsequent Android’s identify: it’ll get started with the letter “P” and it’ll be a dessert meals. That already narrows issues down slightly a little — you’ve were given pudding, pecan pie, peanut brittle…
Then, after all, there’s Popsicle — a truth the corporate would possibly smartly be alluding to in its new Spring Wallpaper Assortment. 9to5Google famous a colourful array of frozen confections in among the decisions. Granted, it’s no longer thematically too a long way from the remainder of the outside, sunshine-themed choices.
Google’s by no means shied clear of such cheeky ideas — and it’s undoubtedly teased us ahead of, together with within the lead as much as Oreo. Although that would simply as simply imply it’s a little of a purple herring — be mindful Android Pocky?
It’s value noting that Popsicle is, if truth be told, nonetheless a trademarked identify — like Kleenex and Xerox and Frisbee. After all, that hasn’t stopped Google prior to now. See such fresh examples as Equipment-Kat and Oreo. And whilst Popsicle-owner Unilever has flexed its muscle tissues keeping up its possession of the identify, it’s arduous to consider a greater/less expensive promotion than stamping your identify throughout the most recent construct of the sector’s most well liked mobile running device.
There’s, after all, the problem of the truth that the Popsicle identify isn’t as globally synonymous with the ice pop as it’s right here within the States. You could are aware of it, most likely, as an ice lolly, ice block or ice drop, relying on the place you occur to be studying this.
Regardless of the case, Google’s almost certainly simply satisfied that we’re speaking about it in any respect.
