Many hoped the Android N would be called Nutella… oh well…


The only reason @Google didn’t call it @Android Nutella, is because it sounds too much like Satya Nadella. #Nougat

The word nougat comes from Occitan pan nogat (pronounced [ˈpa nuˈɣat]), seemingly from Latin panis nucatus ‘nut bread’ (the late colloquial Latin adjective nucatum means ‘nutted’ or ‘nutty’).
