Android Kitkat
Just few days after the launch of Android Jelly Bean, people started to predict the name of the next Android version. As per the Android trend, people knew that it will be the name of a desert starting with the alphabet 'K'. And, Key Lime Pie was the most expected name of the next Android version. But, Google has finally put an end to the rumor by announcing Android 4.4 KitKat as the latest Android platform.Interestingly, this is the first time Google has used a brand name to describe a version of the platform. Yes, Google has teamed up with Nestle to name the latest version of the Android platform.

The news that the letter ‘K’ will be dedicated to Nestle’s KitKat has come as a surprise to the Android fans, who had widely thought the latest version to be named as ‘Key Lime Pie’. Marc Vanlerberghe, Director of Android Marketing said that a better name for the Android K release could not be imagined as the tasty chocolate had been a favorite among their team since the early Android days.

Nestle will mark the release of the new Android platform in the UK by offering prizes through over 50 million specially branded KitKat chocolates featuring the Android robot on the wrapper. The UK based consumers can participate to win the prizes by purchasing special packs of KitKat Four-Finger and KitKat Chunky multipacks available in Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, ASDA and Tesco.

The packs will lead them to the website android.com/kitkat where they could win prizes including 1,000 Google Nexus 7 tablets or one of 50,000 £5 credits for Google Play. These Google Play credits can be used to buy apps, games, music, movies, books and other things at the app store. The KitKat website has also been transformed into a smartphone page advertising the 'adjustable orientation' and 'compatibility (with all liquid accessories)' of the new Kitkat.

Till now, any details regarding the features and improvements in the Android KitKat have not been revealed. So stay connected for more updates.
