Google's latest version of Android will bear the name "Lollipop". Apparently, it's not lemon meringue pie or any other sweet confections that begins with the letter "L".

This announcement will be done with the installation of a giant lawn decor on the grass in front of Building 44 on Google’s campus in Mountain View, California, and not with a large press conference or a long line outside a gadgets' shop.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is the 13th major release of Android, but it’s the first to be fully developed under Sundar Pichai, who took over the OS operation last year. He is the Google senior vice president and confidant of Chief Executive Officer Larry Page.

Coming with the latest version of the Android OS are three new Google-made devices. One of these devices is the 6-inch Google Nexus 6 that will be developed by Motorola Mobility.
