Google announced that the next version of Android is codenamed "KitKat", a reference to the chocolate-covered wafer candy bar. Previously it was speculated that Android 4.4 would be called "Key Lime Pie", but that codenamed was never officially confirmed by the search giant.
To promote the new version of Android, Google entered partnerships with Hershey Company and Nestlé, enabling KitKat customers to win Nexus 7 tablets or $5 credits for the Google Play Store. You can find the full details over here.
Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everybody finds it difficult to stay away from chocolate we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favorite chocolate treats, Kit Kat!
To make this release even sweeter, Kit Kat is giving you the chance to win a Nexus 7 or Google Play credit. Just look for specially branded Kit Kat candy bars featuring the Android robot in a store near you.
