Android 4.4 Named "KitKat"
Google today announced that the next major version of Android - version 4.4 - will be named KitKat, after the Kit Kat candy bar made by Nestlé. Each major version of Android is named for a sweet treat starting with a successive letter of the alphabet. Only major versions get a new name. So while version 4.0 was dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich, versions 4.1-4.3 all shared the name Jelly Bean. Therefore version 4.4 is expected to bring more major changes compared to versions 4.2 and 4.3. Google has not announced any details of the new release, hinting only that it will "make an amazing Android experience available for everybody". Google and Nestlé have teamed up on a promo for the new software. Specially-marked Kit Kat bars will come with a code good for the chance to win a Nexus 7 tablet or Google Play store credit.

Am I missing Any?
Google (the search engine) is your friend.
Major version? Why 4.4 instead of 11.0?
Except KitKat Isnt Made By Nestle
So... being that Nestle and Google teamed up, I can assume that the promotion will ONLY run in nations Nestle markets KitKat (worldwide EXCEPT the USA), while we get stuck with nothing since it is not a branding with Nestle AND Hershey...
GIVE ME A BREAK!
so if we are naming candy... next would be lemonheads or life savers
Is it really April 1st already?
