Perhaps only to spite those who believed the next version of Android would be codenamed “Key Lime Pie,” Google’s Sundar Pichai has today announced that the latest version — which will be version 4.4 — is codenamed “KitKat.”
The announcement came with the tweet below, which included the image above.

Regardless, it’s a great way to take away from the Apple news. Give me a break!
