Android Marshmallow revealed as LG Nexus, Moto 360 rumors puff up

Tech Industry
The next version of Android has a name. And Google wants to help you go solar. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET Update. [MUSIC] The next version of Android has an official sweet treat nickname. Google revealed the next operating system will be called Marshmallow. Every version of Android is assigned a code name of a sweet treat and it's alphabetical. In the early days we had Android Cupcake, Doughnut, Eclair, Froyo. Then came Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich. J is for jellybean, K is for kitkat. The most current version is L known as lollypop. and they make crazy statues to represent all these versions and they put them on the google campus lawn. A pair of google employees, Nat and Lo, posted this behind the scenes video to you tube on the making of the statue. But as for when it's coming to your phone, there's no date. It's still in testing and it's not ready for the public. But it will be out sometime in the fall. And it usually first comes to Google Nexus phones. Rumors are swirling that LG is making the next Nexus. A Google+ user from Indonesia posted this photo of an LG phone marked Not For Sale with the Nexus logo. Could it be the next Nexus. And this looks similar to another photo of the rumor phone posted by the Twitter account OnLeaks. Whatever the final product, it'll arrive sometime in the fall. Also in the Android rumor land, Motorola's next 360 smart watch could come in two sizes. Documents filed to Brazil's telecom regulator shows that Motorola has a 360S and a 360L, maybe for a small and large? The 360L is listed with a larger capacity battery and it seems Motorola accidentally spilled the beans on what it's going to look like. It posted this image to Instagram With an animation to show what you can do with the watch. But this is not what the current model looks like. The button is in a different spot and it holds onto the wrist strap differently. The post has since been removed from Motorola's Instagram page. And how about we end on a bright note, and it doesnt get much brighter than the sun. Google announced a new service called project sunroof, google uses max aided to tell you how much sunlight falls on your homes roof, and then it helps you figure out how much it costs to install solar panels and how much you could save on your energy bills It'll also show you a list of installers in your area. But this project's very young, and it's only available to some people in Boston, San Fransisco, and Fresno, California. Google says it plans to expand it nationwide. That's it for this Tech News update, there's more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC] Marshmallow! [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] I probably shouldn't be eating while I'm doing the news. [LAUGH] [SOUND]
