KitKat 4.4 really does taste as good as it looks

KitKat 4.4 really does taste as good as it looks
Google just announced that the next major version of Android will be Android 4.4 KitKat. This is the first product tie-in for an Android nickname, and as we mentioned before, the tie-in goes beyond just the name. As part of it all, KitKat has just released a new commercial to expound the virtues of Android KitKat.

The ad copy in this commercial is definitely some good stuff, starting by saying that "The future of confectionary has arrived." It goes on to talk about all of the good things you'll get from KitKat 4.4 like, "Every corner, every edge, every finger of every bar has been carefully considered and crafted to create a beautifully immersive and multisensory experience," and "With adjustable orientation, it works perfectly in portrait or landscape for a truly panoramic taste experience that will leave you up in the cloud."

It really is an exceptionally well written spot. It's just a shame that it doesn't give any info on Android 4.4. Still, it is pretty cool that there will be 50 million KitKat bars branded with Android, and a contest to give away KitKat bars that look just like the Android bugdroid, as well as Nexus 7 tablets.

"Still, it is pretty cool that there will be 50 million KitKat bars that will be made to look just like the Android bugdroid, and has launched a contest to give away Nexus 7 tablets. " The actual Android shaped ones are limited edition prizes which Nestle has written about in their article. "SPECIAL PRIZES: More than 50 million Android-branded KitKat bars will be available." "LIMITED EDITION: A small number of Android robot-shaped KitKat bars will also be offered as prizes." Still, it is pretty cool that you guys read the article from the BBC enough to see 50 million.

Here comes the best mobile OS... Android to rule, until the second coming!

There is some cheapness in this concept though. Imagine your premium, shiny HTC One or the fancy, glassy Xperia Z1 running... KitKat and waiting the update to Snickers...

Im looking forward to what "KitKat" can do for and to the Android community. Which also means that people may need to start upgrading their phones to see it live

So is the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 7 going to get this when Android 8.0 is out?

It doesn't really matter, because even if they do they'll still be 2 years ahead of the competition.
