Next version of Android announced as Android passes 1,000,000,000 activations.
The next version of Android will be called KitKat, and be version number 4.4 - crushing rumors of it being called Key Lime Pie and version 5.0.
Sundar Pichai - head of Android, Chrome and Apps at Google - made the announcement in a Google+ post today, while also revealing that there have now been over 1 Billion Android device activations to date.

Google apparently went against naming the next iteration of Android as Key Lime Pie, as "very few people actually know the taste of a key lime pie". While Nestle are behind the new name (and actively helping to promote it), it’s apparently ”not a money-changing-hands kind of deal,” with Google and Nestle both finding plenty to make the arrangement worthwhile.
Google are yet to announce what changes will be included in the new release, except to say it’s their goal to “make an amazing Android experience available for everybody”.
