“Key Lime Pie”? No. Plan has been changed and name as well. Android Chief Sundar Pichai announced that Android has reached to 1 Billion Activation. So, It is the time of treat with next Android version “Android Kitkat.” Android KitKat will be Android 4.4.
“All this Android innovation is driving tremendous ecosystem momentum and I’m excited to share that together we’ve now passed 1 Billion Android device activations,” Android head Sunar Pichai said.
“On my return from Asia, I was also thrilled to find this guy waiting to greet me on the front lawn — love the new #AndroidKitKat statue and can’t wait to release the next version of the platform that is as sweet as the candy bar that’s one of our team’s favorites:) ,” he added.
For this name, Google has made a deal KitKat owner Nestle. It all started back in November 2012 and finalized in MWC Barcelona earlier this year. For this deal, no many has been exchanged. It seems to be a promotional deal. Google will mention the name Android kitkat when it want to say anything about Android 4.4. Nestle will also sell 50 million Android branded Kitkats in 19 countries around the world. When you buy these Android branded chocolates, you will be able to enter in a contest to win Nexus 7 tablets. Robot shaped bars will also be available to promote Android.
