Google's Latest Treat: Android KitKat

Posted: 07:03PM

The nickname of the next Android OS version from Google is officially announced, and it's nothing less than Nestlé's own chocolate treat "KitKat". So much for all the rumors about "Key Lime Pie"! The name was announced today through a Google+ post by Google's Sundar Pichai, Senior Vice President, Chrome and Apps. From "Cupcake" to "Jelly Bean", Google has strictly used dessert and confectionary treat names for the different iterations of its Android OS. This time however, marks a first; since the media giant has now leveraged an actual popular food name brand. 

To further sweeten the deal, this announcement is found on the home page of the official Android website, "We’re naming the next version of Android after one of our favorite chocolate treats, KitKat. Look for specially branded KitKat bars in a store near you that give you a chance to win a Nexus 7 or Google Play credit."

Looks like an early Easter KitKat hunt is imminent, good luck everyone!

It will probably get it before most Android devices.
