Next version of Android to be 4.4 KitKat, not 5.0 Key Lime Pie

147

Those of us who have been waiting for Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie to be announced, you’re going to be disappointed. Google has officially unveiled the name of the next version of Android.

Android 4.4 will be called KitKat.

Say it with me now: “give me a break!”

It’s true. You can check out the official Android site where KitKat is listed as Android 4.4, or read Sundar Pichai’s Google+ post where he states there are now 1-billion Android activations. At the bottom of the post you’ll even find a picture of the Android KitKat statue at Google HQ.

While Key Lime Pie did have a special ring to it, and 5.0 indicated major changes coming to Android, we’ll reserve our judgement to see what 4.4 brings. Sadly, there’s no word on when Google will reveal KitKat to the public.

If hearing about a Kit Kat bar is making you hungry, be on the lookout for the Android robot on the packaging of the real candy bar soon. Google and Hershey’s are giving lucky winners a Google Play credit or a new Nexus 7.

  1. When will 4.4 be released? Maybe more importantly, when will 5.0 be released? I wonder if 4.4 will turn out to be a very minor release based on a huge marketing cross-promotion, but talking about 4.4 will allow Google a few extra months to work on the 5.0 code before it is announced?

  2. The mobile apps developers have to take a note of the version updates of android and other operating systems. Never worry! hey can leverage and profit from the ad netwrks like admob, revmob, appnext and a few more
