Sweet treat: Google dubs next version of #Android software "KitKat"

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AFP) - Google on Tuesday said the next version of Android will be called "KitKat" in keeping with its penchant for giving tasty names to its software for powering mobile devices. "Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert," the California-based technology titan said in a blog post. "As everyone finds it difficult to stay away from chocolate we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favourite chocolate treats." The list of Android software names over the years includes Cupcake, Donut, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. In a promotion deal, Google is enticing people with chances to win Android-powered Nexus 7 tablets or credit at its online Play shop by buying KitKat candy bars featuring Android robot icons on wrappers.
