The Upcoming Android Q has a NEW Name: Android 10. Bye Bye Desert names!

So We were all waiting for what word that starts with Q that the Android company would choose for the name of Android Q, but it turned out they got us. They stopped with the alphabetical Desert names and are strictly using numbered versions. It makes sense, The name was merely a code name anyways and they were using the number in all their prior releases always, but no body ever referred to the number they always referred to it by name. cus it sounded cool, but what I heard is some of the desert names can not be pronounced properly in other parts of the world and some letters sound similar so they decided on making number the official way of identifying the version, good on the Android company for doing this.

This means the heavily anticipated Android Q is now going to be the heavily anticipated Android 10. good on them, Way to Go Android, oh yeah they also tweaked their logo slightly, I like it!

A little bit of individuality and creativity lost but that's the way things go these days. Thinking like computers not human beings.

And folks its "dessert", the last course of a meal not "desert", a very dry place.

Too bad. I was looking forward to Android Quindim, Qottab or Quesito. Though not a dessert, Quinoa would have been very trendy. Quinoa Pudding

They'll continue to use letters for their internal code names. Android 10 was Queen Cake internally.

According to several sources, the Android 10 roll-out will start for all Pixel phones tomorrow (regardless of carrier).

Not a surprise - hard to find a good desert beginning with the letter 'Q'. There's Qaidim in Qinghai - but not particularly well known.

Shame it didn't last a couple more letters - Sahara would have been a great name for an OS!
