We know that Google is due to refresh its tablet offerings at some point this summer, and leaked photos from an upcoming set-top box called Android TV point to Google taking yet another crack at releasing an Android-based TV. We may have learned the code names for these devices.
MyCE.com discovered in the Chromium issue tracker that there is a reference to 'google/volantis/flounder' in the code. Android Central then searched the Android Open Source Project, the official code source for Android, and found reference to 'project/device/htc/flounder' as well. As you may recall, HTC has been rumored to be producing the next Nexus tablet, and this may be a clear sign of that happening. Nexus devices use fish-based codenames, and both Google and HTC using flounder projects seems like too much of a coincidence.
Also worth noting is this line:
