Android P (officially known as Android 9 Pie) was always going to be the easiest.
From palette to mint, pastry, popcorn, popcorn, praline, praline, fragile with peanut, pop rock and pancake. Pez to Peeps to Pudding to Parfait to Pocky to Pound Cake to Punschkrapfen to Profiterole to Patbingsu, there were a lot of possibilities for the pseudonym of P. (And that's not even counting fruits like pear, passion fruit, pumpkin, plum, peach or pamplemousse).
But now that the name of Pie is ready, the eyes of the Android naming community must turn to the real challenge: the launch of Android 10 Q this year. We have always known that, one day, we would have to cross this road, given the conventions of Google names for Android, and with Google I / O 2019 just around the corner, it is time to revisit this naming nightmare to see what the possibilities are.
There have been difficult challenges before: Google had to turn to the Internet for suggestions on the name of Android N, and O would probably have been a calamity if Google could not have associated with Nabisco to get the name of Oreo.
But even N and O seem like simple solutions compared to what awaits Q. According to Google's somewhat outdated history of the Android website, each Android version has "a sweet name" and, simply, there is no Much of marketable desserts or snacks that start with the letter Q. Actually, there are not many foods that start with a Q period, let alone a tasty treat that can be combined with Cupcake, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo and Pastel.
Consult the Internet does not offer many options either. There are some desserts that start with Q, but most of them originate outside of the United States. And although they are certainly delicious, it is likely that they lack the level of familiarity that Google is seeking at the level of marketing in the United States.
For my part, I think Google should leave the desserts next year, because Q is too difficult. Here's how:
Google: Introducing Android 10 Quibble!
Internet: That's not a dessert!
Google: Let's not argue about silly things.https: //t.co/z26Z2i1xxX

What happens if Google dubs the rules and expands to other foods that start with Q? After all, you could probably make Quail or Quiche sweet if you were creative enough in the kitchen.
- Android 10 Quinoa
- Android 10 Quail
- Android 10 Quesadilla
- Android 10 Quiche
It is also possible Google will use the milestone number 10 to start a new naming scheme, similar to what Apple did for the macOS versions when I already used all the big cats in the animal kingdom. In that case, the sky could be the limit for Android Q. Google could use saints! Countries! D & D monsters! Planetas Maybe a tie Star Trek to go with the new show by Patrick Stewart? Or how about using regular numbers? Anything could happen!
Update of May 6, 2019, 4:15 PM, Eastern Time: Additional conjectures were added for the name of Android Q and more details before Google I / O 2019.
