Android 4.4 will be Called KitKat

Google have confirmed the newest version of their Android mobile operating system will be called KitKat.

Following in the footsteps of other candy-named OS’ such as Gingerbread, Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich, KitKat marks the first time a brand name has been used. A statement on the Android website read;

 

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, Kitkat®!

It is not yet known how the licensing arrangement was handled with this one. Have KitKat’s owners Hersey (in the US) and Nestle (the rest of the world) paid Google paid for their world-famous chocolate bar to be associated with the latest Android OS, or have Google stumped up a wad of cash to use the KitKat name?
