Android 4.4 unveiled as Android KitKat


In a new twist to the Android naming scheme, Google have partnered up with Nestle and named Android 4.4 KitKat!

Google contacted Nestle to work out a deal so they could use the KitKat product name on the forthcoming release of the Android mobile operating system, which just so happens to be the K release. Previously it was believed Key Lime Pie was to the next Android name following on from other favourite deserts such as Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich.

Could it be possible that Google will make similar deals in the future to have further big name products offer their name to Android systems? What Android name would you like to see? We quite fancy “Android Creme Egg”.
