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