Google’s head of both Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai has confirmed that the next version of Android will be called KitKat. A splash page for the new operating system reveals that KitKat will be the codename for Android 4.4. The name keeps the company’s long-standing tradition of naming each version of its mobile operating system.
Google says that “it’s our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody.”
To promote the partnership, a new Willy Wonka-style contest offers buyers of specially-marked KitKat packages a chance to win either a free Nexus 7 or a Google Play credit. If you’re really lucky, you might even get a KitKat bar in the shape of an Android robot.
