If any tech company knows about advertising, it's Google, and it looks like Google is going for the first ever product tie-in with the new version of Android. We are fans of Key Lime Pie, but KitKats are pretty delicious too. The KitKat Android statue has already arrived on the Google campus to join the rest of the statues, and Google has set up a landing page showing the history of Android nicknames all the way through to KitKat. The other big news is that Android has passed 1 billion total activations, according to Mr. Pichai.
Unfortunately, Google isn't letting slip any information on what Android 4.4 KitKat will bring to the table, saying simply, "It's our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody." The rumor has been that the next major version of Android would bring optimizations for low-spec handsets, as well as optimizations for laptops and TVs. That would certainly fit the "amazing Android experience available for everybody."
With the statue on the lawn, and new Nexus devices expected in the next couple months, it shouldn't be too long before we see the official unveiling of Android 4.4 KitKat and all of its features.
