“LMP” – Lemon Meringue Pie – Looking More And More Likely As The Official Name For Android L
This extract from the Android SDK mentions the current preview builds of Android L available for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 as the “lmp-preview-release.” You can find it in the file at extras/android/m2repository/com/android/support/cardview-v7/21.0.0-rc1/cardview-v7-21.0.0-rc1.aar if you have the SDK installed on your computer.
And here we have the WiFi certification (PDF link) for HTC’s “flounder” tablet, AKA the Volantis, which will probably come to market as the Nexus 9. The firmware is specifically labeled “LMP.”
So we know at this point that the internal nomenclature for the Android L release is LMP. But keep in mind, Android 4.4 was known as “KLP” – Key Lime Pie – in internal documents right up to the point when Google announced its surreal promotion with Nestle’s KitKat brand of chocolate bars. Whether or not Google will pull another switcheroo (and presumably piss off all its developers and engineers) we couldn’t say. The people who make Lifesavers are probably waiting by the phone.
