After much speculation with most of us getting comfortable with calling Android 5.0 “Key Lime Pie”, here we are with the official announcement from Google that the next version of Android 4.4 will be known as Android KitKat. Did this name disappoint you? I think it is a brilliant move, since KitKat is an easily identifiable brand name that many more would be familiar with compared to Key Lime Pie.
In the words of Google, “Prepare for a sweet new treat. 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®!"
What do you think of Android KitKat? Do you like it, or do you think that it should be called something else? Perhaps it is now time to take a break from iOS, and have a KitKat instead.
