Android 8.0 is being teased as Oreo, after Nougat was used for Android 7.0, with the Oreo tease coming from a Google employee over Twitter. Hiroshi Lockheimer, the SVP of Android, Chrome OS and Play teased a picture of an Oreo cake. I think that's a big enough hint of what letter dessert we'd get for 'O'.

What do you think Android 8.0 will be called? How many desserts start with an o?
