In line with the tradition of naming it’s OS after various desserts , Google has codenamed Android 4.4 as KitKat. The earlier versions being called Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.
Interestingly, while all previous Android OS versions have been named after generic names of desserts, Google chose to go with a trademarked chocolate name ‘Kit Kat’ with a slight twist being the use of the brand name without spaces. Google has however taken the blessing of the maker of Kit Kat- Nestle.
Infact, Google is using more than just the brand name and is planning to use Kit Kat as a promotional vehicle with over 50 million Kit Kats expected to promote the Android mascot in various markets.
What are your thoughts on Google choosing KitKat as the name for Android 4.4?
