Android Lassi or Android Ladoo Campaign for Next Android Version Name – Request from Indian Groups Technology
After Android Kitkat, Indians are demanding Android Lassi or Android Ladoo as the next Android Version name. Earlier at the time of Google Android 4.4 KitKat, Indians ran a campaign for Android KajuKatli, but anyhow, due to some strategic decision they have not considered and go with the 4.4 Kitkat. Now, as we know that Google has a pattern that they name all the Android Versions by the name of some deserts or sweet, Lassi is the most favorite dessert in India and also Ladoo is the most poppular sweet across India and hence Indians are now demanding Android Lassi or Android Ladoo to have as a Name for Android’s next version Android 4.5.
A team of Students from IIT, Kharagpur have started this campaign and they asked others to join and support the Android Lassi or Android Ladoo Campaign. This group has written an open letter to the Android Boss Sundar Pichai and they have requested in this letter they have requested to name Android Lassi as the next Android OS Version. Lassi is the Yogurt based drink which is very sweet and popular in India and not only that, it also resembles the Indian Culture. Same with the Ladoo that it is perhaps the most popular sweet in India and it also resembles the Indian Culture.
Android is the most popular Mobile Operating System in India. Though iOS, windows, Symbian, blackberry has a presence in India and they are also popular and used widely in India, no one is still be able to tap the so extensively as the Android has done. This shows the love of Indians towards the Google’s Android. If Google will Name “Lassi” as the next Android OS version will show that Google is aware about the popularity in of Android amongst the Indian People and Google appreciate this popularity amongst the Indian people.
The news showing that the Google is going to name the next version Android 4.5 as a Android Lollipop and the news is almost confirm. The question arises that, if Android Lollipop is almost confirm, why this group of students are running a campaign for the Lassi or Ladoo. One of the reason might be that, though it is almost confirm news, Google has not 100% decided on Lollipop and hence still there is a hope that Google might change their mind to give an Indian touch to the next android OS version. One figure shows that around 68.8% of total smartphones shipped in India are powered by Android and this is approximately 3 times greater than the iOS. Hence the campaign to name it as a Lassi.
Along with this IIT, Kharagpur group; one another group of 500 Indian Tech start-up group is running a campaign for Android Ladoo. This is the same group which earlier ran a campaign for Android Kaju-Katli. The group said, perhaps there might be some strategical pressure on Google for Kitkat or the voice of this group was not loud enough to reach to the Google for the Kaju-Katli. But now at this time, the group is planning to make their voice so louder for Ladoo that it will reach to the Google’s Android Team.
As the “Key Lime Pie” is concerned, Google has almost dumped the plan to make “Key Lime Pie” as the next name for the Google’s mobile platform Operating System Android and Android Lollipop is in the replacement of Android Name. But still the name is not officially announced by the Google. So, both the group says that there is still a hope for Android Lassi or Android Ladoo and both the groups are making their efforts for making their vocie louder to reach to the Android Boss Sundar Pichai. Any-how, time to go. Let’s wait till Google makes any official announcement.
