Have a Break, Have an Android KitKat

Google has revealed its latest Android OS after the Nestles KitKat as Android activations pass 1 billion mark world wide. The Android 4.4, or Android KitKat came as a surprise to many technology watchers as the company had previously indicated that version 4.4 which is expected in October would go by the generic name Key Lime Pie. Android is the world’s most popular and widely used Mobile OS spreading to billions of smartphones and tablets.

Google has a history of naming software after confectionery and desserts - previous versions include Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread, Froyo and Jelly Bean.


The KitKat-Android marketing deal will also see buyers of Nestle's popular four-fingered bar able to win Android tablets by looking out for 50 million special wrappers worldwide. This surely helps boost the sales of Nestle KitKat as well. This amazing idea for the marketing hook-up was reportedly Google's, with Android bosses approaching Nestle about the idea in November.
