Gimme a break: New Android system named Kit Kat

| Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 12:01 a.m.

Google, known for nick-naming its Android mobile operating systems for smartphones and tablets for desserts, for the first time has chosen a brand-name candy for its 4.4 version that's expected to introduce in the fall: Kit Kat.

To go along with the promotion, packages of the chocolate candy bar will show Android's green robot mascot breaking a Kit Kat bar.

Financial terms weren't disclosed for the sweet deal between Google and Hershey Co., which makes Kit Kat. The Android 4.4 Kit Kat system is expected to be offered on devices in October.

The software is now running on more than 750 million smartphones and tablets throughout the world, making it the world's most widely used mobile operating system.
