Android - Mushroom, Mozzarella, Mulberry, Marmalade, Mayonnaise, Melon, Macaroni, Maple....
It's wise decision to release Android M because it will not run on Java platform. That will surely save lot of battery, RAM, Processing power and Storage.
That's the only reason IOS can run smoothly with Dual Core processor.
Could be a new style of android like they have android "tv" the car version.. it could be based on something business/productivity related like they have the new google work apps folder now something maybe based on that line of scope or something for use like integrated systems such as pay points or even thinks like those computers used on machines ect...
cannot be 'mango' as that name's taken by windows a year back.
whatever that thing is, not to expect a huge upgrade. we are almost covered in all the sides with lollipop.
Android 'Melon' sounds more sensible.
what-so-ever it is, Android will always remain a top OS.
Good luck to One M8, S5, Note 3, Z's and recent flagships. Youll gonna wait until late 2016..LOL
cX, 07 May 2015and that's Google's fault?
The Android manufacturers put on the devices at store shelves is not AOSP, it's a Google licensed version which has it's own terms and rules (like being mandatory to bundle all of Google's crap).
It's all up to Google to amend those terms to not only mandate their crap but also force them to upgrade the OS within certain mandated timeframes.
But then again, Google's business is big data. Their crappy apps give them personal data to sell, upgrading the OS does not.
King 999, 07 May 2015The android Update will be Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)It will probably be 5.2 or 5.3. It will definitely not be android 6.
kamikazi, 07 May 2015Milkshake? :D but anyway this kinda makes me worry :( i have note 4 and i just got lollipop ... moreWell jou got it like yeaterday but the preview is out for almost a year and the official one like 6months so you really only have Samsung to blame. They need to create a build bot to merge all their code. I got AOSP Android 5 more than 5 months ago and for me this is something to look forward to, although with Android 5.1.1 already on my phone I doubt that this update wil be huge
but anyway this kinda makes me worry :( i have note 4 and i just got lollipop and killed myself for it!
and wow it was like yesterday that lollipop came out :D
Let M stand for anything google wants it to be but please dont be Android Mistake :p
madeandy , 07 May 2015Who gives a damn what M stands for? Lollipop runs on less than 10% of devices worldwide and y... moreThats samsungs fault !! it has nothing to do with google releasing new version of android !!
Android Mums-Mums would be golden...
