Google started its Android journey with version 1.5 and subsequently evolved it, the latest version being the Android 4.1 through 4.3 also called the Jelly bean OS. And now Google will release the Android 4.4 version, pretty soon.
Rumors about the next Android OS were in the news for quite some time, it was also presumed that the 4.4 version would be called the Android Key Lime Pie, but it seems Google has given all the rumors a break and called it, KitKat.
Google has created a page that confirms the next ‘Android KitKat’ version. The page also shows a brief history of all the versions that have been created. If the word KitKat reminds you of the Nestle’s KitKat chocolate bar, well you are right, in fact Google has partnered with Nestle and preferred calling their next released as KitKat.
According to Marc Vanlerberghe (Director Android Marketing), the tasty chocolate has been their favorite ever since the Android was created and they couldn’t imagine a better name. There is no word as to when this android version will be released. Users will also get an opportunity to take part in a competition and win prizes – 1000 Nexus 7 tablets to be won and 50 million Android robot shaped KitKat bars.
