Google names next Android version: KitKat
Just when everybody thought that the next version of Android will be named Key Lime Pie, Google surprised the cyberworld by announcing that the upcoming Android 4.4 will go by the KitKat moniker.
Why KitKat you might ask? Well, it’s no rocket science actually. It’s just that Google has this age-old tradition of naming its mobile platform after delectable treats in alphabetical order. It all started with Android 1.5 which was named Cupcake, then followed by Donut(v1.6), Éclair (v2.0) and Froyo (v2.2).
During the latter part of 2010, Google released Froyo’s successor, Gingerbread (v2.3) which became the most widely-used version of the platform even after they’ve released the tablet-optimized Honeycomb (v3.0), Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0.x) and “buttery-smooth” Jelly bean (v4.1.x).
So far, Google remains mum on the things we can expect from KitKat besides their oath to “make an amazing Android experience available for everybody”. Is Google thinking of giving its mobile platform a complete overhaul like they did during the transition from GB to ICS? Or is it going to be just an incremental upgrade to further improve the great OS? Tell us what you think in the comments field below.
