Google has announced the next version of their mobile OS, Android 4.4 KitKat, which takes its name from the Nestle KitKat Chocolate bar. We had previously though that the next Android release would be Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
Google has named its various Android releases after desserts since the first version was launched, but this is the first time that the company has named an Android release after a particular brand.
Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everybody finds it difficult to stay away from chocolate we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favorite chocolate treats, Kitkat.
There are no details as yet on exactly when Android 4.4 KitKat will be released, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
