Today seems to be turning into one of those days where the entire world is talking about the mobile devices market. While everyone is focused on the recent news of Microsoft's purchase of Nokia's Mobile Devices business, Google has announced some major news about the future of Android.
On his Twitter account, Google's head of Android, Sundar Pichai, announced that the next generation of Android will be named after the popular NestlÃ© candy bar KitKat. Along with Pichai's announcement came a photo of the new KitKat-shaped mascot that is been erected on Google's front lawn.
Unlike many would think, Google and NestlÃ© say that the deal does not involve any money changing hands, but rather a collaboration of ideas that are supposed to keep things fun and fresh. Google says that the deal with NestlÃ© was finalized back in February at Mobile World Congress, but would not allude to a launch date for Android KitKat or would it make mention of any devices that might feature the new operating system.
