    We thought that Android L = Android 5.0 Lollipop... Isn't?

    So far, with the exception of 1.x to 2.x, each integer increase has represented a spread to or change in the handling of a device type. 3.0 was tablets only (later used on Google TV), 4.0 unified tablets and phones, 5.0 would make sense with the spread to wear and the car. It begs the question of what 6.0 might spread to?

    Most of the changes with Android L are cosmetic. The added APIs and new features are numerous but none of what KitKat changed and brought to the table are being changed. You could literally take the KK and L updates and bundle them and neither would conflict. So to the user L seems huge so it is an easy point to embellish but KK was a much larger change to the inner working of the OS.

    Not sure about most of you but the look of Android is not the most important element for me.
    I have to disagree with you there. I could barely notice the diff between Jellybean and KK...Google Io listed far more changes from APi's to the whole flattening of the design. Its on par with ios 5 to ios 6.

    That last keynote droned on forever with changes. You'll be able to run apps on Chrome, and they had me at CarPlay!

    So far (since 2010) moving between integers has represented expansion to new platforms. I'd be very surprised if this wasn't 5.0, but I have no idea what the L and 50 would have to do with anything... since that wasn't used in any letter combination so far.
    I'm not sure that isn't confusing cause and effect, in that expanding to new platforms often required a large rethink of the UI and developer tools. But either way L both includes new platforms AND what Google has itself called its biggest release ever in terms of both UI and APIs, so it would be pretty surprising IMO if it weren't 5.0.

    Nothing is confirmed until it's official - but for all intents and purposes, 5.0 is what it'll be called. :-). Now we wait. Lol.
