Google must have gotten tons of $$$ for the free advertising.
Anarki  +   361d ago

Personally I like this name much more. I mean who wouldn't want a kit kat android?

They're using a trademarked Nestle product as the name of the new OS? Why would Nestle lend them that name? That's just stupid.

....anyone else hungry for a kitkat bar?
(yes, I'm being intentionally ironic)

Cross promotion?

Don't forget to wash down that KitKat with an ice cold Coke.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   361d ago
not coke, preferably something like milk or chocolate milk because if you drink coke it will taste bitter and not as sweet due to eating kit kat that is sweeter

Oh. I kind of expected a feature list or something. So this is all about the name of the operating system, and not what it can do? Give me a break, indeed.

No new features listed yet but a few other blogs picked up on the Nexus 5 being "accidentally" revealed.

I just hope they don't use kitkat colors for it.

Android shaped KitKat's confirmed!

I hope my Samsung S3 will be compatible with Kitkat :-D

I haven't had a KitKat since last Halloween. I will purchase one by the end of the week.

Everybody wins...

Could actually hint at something to do with the interface. You break kit kats into sections. Could be a UI / Interface change on how things work. Probably reading into it too much, but who knows? ;)
