Possible foundation for K4/KT codenames

K4/KT has the same hardware design codenamed yoshi. But retail models of this design has also their own codenames: tequila for K4 and whitney for KT.

There were more than two models for this hardware design.Their traces are available in /etc/upstart/functions file. Here are names of these models (incuding retail ones), listed in /proc/board_id prefix order, starting from prefix 000 and up to 005:
  1. yoshi
  2. primer
  3. harv
  4. tequila
  5. finkle
  6. whitney
(Kindle Touch without 3G has board_id prefix 005, Kindle Touch 3G has board_id prefix 006, but the share the same codename).

What does these codenames mean? It looks like first prototype has been named yoshi, following tradition to name after Mario characters. But what about others?

Well, I don't know for sure, but googling for primer harv tequila finkle leads to book "The Diamond Age" by Neal Stephenson.

harv, tequila and finkle are names of characters. And primer is

Nice allusion.

What about whitney? Unfortunately, I still don't know, what does it mean...

Without a 7 (and possibly an 8) it is impossible to know if the prior pattern is being followed for 6.

The new "One Laptop Per Child" tablet also alludes to that book.

Also, there was a discussion about codenames here back in 2008, where it was decided that fiona was also from that book:
