Kit Kat Will Be Name of Next Version of Android

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_a4176bf020.jpg@sundarpichai/Twitter(NEW YORK) -- Android chief Sundar Pichai announced on Tuesday via Twitter and Google Plus that Android had hit one billion activations and also added a little treat: The next version of the operating system -- Android 4.4 -- won't be named Key Lime Pie, as rumored, it will be called or codenamed Kit Kat.

And don't worry, that's a fully licensed name and partnership, too.

Google has worked with Nestle and Hershey, the makers of the chocolatey and crunchy candy bar, to go even further.  Nestle will make a number of Android-themed Kit Kat bars.  They even made a website to promote it.

According to the company, more than 50 million specially-branded chocolate bars will be available in 19 markets, including the U.S., U.K., Canada and the Middle East.  When you buy the bar, you will be able to enter to win Google prizes, including the Nexus 7 tablet.  Nestle's press release says they will also make a limited number of robot-shaped bars.

Nestle did not immediately respond to ABC News' questions about the limited edition bars.

Google has also erected a Kit Kat statue in the shape of the Android robot in front of its Android headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., to join the other Android statues.  Google has named each of its Android versions in alphabetical order after desserts, starting with Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and now Kit Kat.

Google has launched a website about Kit Kat -- the software, not the candy -- though it doesn't reveal much beyond the fact that its goal with the next version of the software is to "make an amazing Android experience available for everyone."
