New Android OS Will be Kitkat

Just cross referencing this to the Cell Phones thread as its for both cell phones, and tablet platforms

Google unveiled today, as it always does prior to an announcement, a new statue on its lawn outside the Android headquarters. But instead of a Key Lime Pie, Google has licensed (or so we assume) the KitKat name from Nestle for its upcoming operating system.
The One and Only and Proud to be an Indian.

Could be "Lime Pie" but shouldn't start with a K if 4.4 is KitKat.

Google is making ad-revenue everywhere now!

I'm curious of the popularity of Key Lime Pies, I didn't know what it was until I watched Dexter. How popular is it outside the US?

6.0 is Big Mac, 6.1 is Double Big Mac. Google is working with Mcdonalds to finalize the naming right. In return, McDonald has the right to use the trademarks Donut, Froyo, Jellybean in their value menu. :lol: Sorry, couldn'd resist.

Can't be, the next one will start with an L (notice how each version has been in order of eclair, froyo, gingerbread, Honeycomb, ice cream sandwich, jelly bean, kitkat). Maybe lemon meringue pie? :lol:

This should clarify things a bit-
To date, Google has internally referred to the release as Key Lime Pie, but the company decided to go for another name after realizing that "very few people actually know the taste of a key lime pie," director of Android partnerships John Lagerling tells the BBC. Late last year, someone suggested naming the upcoming version KitKat — apparently a favorite snack of Android coders — and the company "decided to reach out to the Nestle folks." Within 24 hours an agreement was made, though it's apparently "not a money-changing-hands kind of deal," according to Lagerling.

can be.

5.0 is Key Lime pie. 6.0 is Big Mac ;-) Google is still undecided whether 7.0 should called McNugget and 8.0 Filet-O-Fish.

Negative.

Google is working with Nestle to offer giveaways of Nexus 7 tablets and Play Store credits via specially marked wrappers of Kit Kat.
Check the inside of your wrapper!

Nice way to generate more buzz/revenue, imho.
Looking for quotable content for signature. Continue posting. :idea:
