Android 4.4 to be named "KitKat"

A surprise announcement from Google yesterday was that the upcoming version of Android 4.4 will be named "KitKat" and not "Key Lime Pie" as previously widely reported.

The naming is part of a deal with Nestle (owners of the KitKat brand), but no money has changed hands. It's all in the name of fun with a bit of cross-marketing thrown in.

One nice twist is that the KitKat website has been humorously updated and is well worth a look.. and perhaps you'll understand why KitKat is such a good name for Android 4.4 after all..
