News about Android KitKat broke recently, finally laying to rest the speculations that the next version of Android will be named after the key lime pie. The announcement was surprising, but supposedly well-planned since November 2012. Google says that it aims for the new version to be enjoyed by everybody. Some have taken this statement to mean that Android 4.4 KitKat would allow users with older hardware to enjoy the latest version of Android, thereby addressing Android’s fragmentation issue. Since the announcement, Google has released a commercial promoting Android KitKat. However, it has not announced when the new version will be available.
