Android 4.4. Kitkat -android.com
Google breaks the rumor about Key Lime Pie predicted that will be the next version name of Android. Yes, you've hear it right, Android 4.4 is a KitKat, not a Key Lime Pie.

Last July 24, 2013, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean was announced together with some new Google products like Chromecast, and the most awaited product, the Google Nexus 7 2013 Edition where the first Android device with Android 4.3 preinstalled, followed by seeding update to other Nexus devices.

Fewer details are up to moment. But Google teases about the details with this line:
"It's our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody."
So does it mean that Android 4.4 will support older devices? Even running devices running Android 4.0 ICS and below? Lets see.

But we loved how the Android fans teased with the video and website of Android, specially KitKat as well, but let me share this video first, that it looks like a Apple promotional video in sounds, how they present and keep talking about innovation.....

The device running Android 4.4 will likely more sweet offer of Android line-up, way back to other Android desserts.

Why KitKat?The Android 4.4 release was initially planned to be called Key Lime Pie but sometime late last year, they decided to switch to the chocolate bar name. According to BBC, the deal is done and sealed on Mobile World Congress secretly way back on February of this year. They will have a joint promotion with Nestle and Google to promote the give-away of the new Nexus 7 (2013) and Google Play credits on US and UK. Other than that, The BBC also reports that there will be more than 50 million KitKats promoting the Android mascot in 19 markets (including Brazil, India, Japan and Russia), but it's not clear whether the giveaway promotion will make its way to those countries as well. John Lagerling, director of Android global partnerships, explained to the BBC that "this is not a money-changing-hands kind of deal," but instead, they wanted do something "fun and unexpected".


Since Android 4.4 KitKat, we are free to guess what is the next version. One thing is for sure, the next Android line-up will be started with the capital letter "L" :)

And expectedly, the smartphones running Android 4.4 installed will be unveil on Google press event this October and they well tell more what Android KitKat is.
