The information fell yesterday after the post of the director of the division Android, Sundar Pichai, on Google+: the next version of Android will be Android 4.4 KitKat. On occasion, he also announced that Android has surpassed the billion activation, while the last three months report showed there are 900 million activation.
So it is official, the next version of Android 4.4 and will be known as KitKat. This is probably the best kept secret at Google, because according to The Verge, the partnership with Google and Nestlé had already started in the month of November 2012. A partnership is not without surprise as everyone expected to see land Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie this year, or about the month of October or early November.
Sundar Pichai said the general interest of Android used for this chocolate bar especially during their break. Moreover, one can also note the connotation of this product in the current context geek, suggesting a young person who does not leave his or her smartphone tablet while feasting on the candy. So, Google wanted to associate the name of this famous Nestlé chocolate in its next version of Android.
Nestlé has now produce 50 million chocolate bars bearing the image of Android for marketing in no less than 19 countries worldwide. In addition, the company also announced that KitKat contest is available, and it will be possible to gain new Nexus 7, 2013 or the credit that you can use the Google Play.
Anyway, so many people thought it was a hoax at first, it is now much more attached with among others the establishment of KitKat status on the lawn of the headquarters of Google, as well as Update Twitter account KitKat and its YouTube channel. However, we still do not know what could make this update, whether it will be a major upgrade or just an improvement as it was the case with version 4.3. However, we can expect several new features if it refers to the change of name code.
