Google always names its newest version of Android after a dessert, in alphabetical order. This year  it’s doing something a bit different: you get to pick the name.

You can head on over to android.com/n to submit your vote. While it seems it doesn’t have to be dessert this time around – ‘Nuts’ and ‘Nachos’ are examples on suggestion site – my vote still definitely goes to Nutella (because it’s Nutella, duh).

That said, don’t think you can campaign for a raunchy name (4chan is already up to no good); Google is reserving the right to choose the final title.
