Android 4.4 KitKat: review of all the new features

Android 4.4 KitKat: all the new features review
The ever-funny Google went crazy with the naming of the new incremental Android 4.4 update. The next letter of the alphabet after the "J" in 4.3 Jelly Bean is "K", so Key Lime Pie was long bandied about for an Android 4.4 nickname, but alas.

Seemingly at the last minute, the folks at Mountain View went and partnered with an actual confectionery producer, and a giant one like Nestlé at that, to name the latest version of Android after one of their most famous deserts, and that's how Android 4.4 KitKat was born. 

We can talk long and winded about the marketing synergies for both companies that will result from grabbing a KitKat bar from the counter, with a little green robot munching on the wrapper, but it's time for the new features of Android 4.4 KitKat Google just announced together with its latest Nexus 5 handset. There are a bunch of them, and we know how everyone is impatient to see what they'll be getting for free from El Goog when the 4.4 update hits their phones and tablets, so here's a quick roundup in the slideshow below.
