FHM Nation, it looks like our Madame Auring skills needs a little bit of polishing (unlike yours).android kitkatWe were almost 100-percent sure that the next Android OS version will be called Key Lime Piewe'll tell you the reason in a bitbut, lo and behold, Google decided to surprise us by officially naming it KitKat! Yes, KitKat, after that über-popular chocolate bar that implores you to "have a break."

We smell a partnership in the mix here; and there is! Apparently, Google has already hooked up with Nestle for this one laying the groundwork for what could be a gigantic partnership with loads of potential. Check out the video below.


Just imagine the promo power this could create. And Android shaped like a KitKat bar? KitKat wrappings with the Android mascot? Android toys sold via Nestle products? The sky is the limit, and it's already starting with a big-ass KitKat statue right up the Big G's HQ.


Now, back to the naming game: In case you didn't know, Google has a rather unique alphabetically arranged naming scheme that uses popular sweets as the official labels of Android versions. For example, the first one was Cupcake (v1.5), then came Donut (v1.6), and Eclair (v2.0). The last two were called Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) and Jelly Bean (v4.1). Since there's not a lot of sweets starting with K, many of us thought that Key Lime Pie will be it, and that's how we were duped.

Aside from the new name, no other official deets were revealed. But, if we've got to guess (here we go again), we think a KitKat-themed Candy Crush game is on the horizon. "Make it happen!" says the Candy Crush addict in us.
