TECH | ANDROID x NESTLE KITKAT
SWEET CHOCOLATE TECHNOLOGY
Well, this is a welcome surprise.
Today, Google announced that the next version of Android OS will be called ‘KitKat’ and has partnered up with Nestle on promoting the next operating system, following in a long line of naming their popular OS after various tasty treats.
If you noticed that the Android link leads to Hersey’s instead of Nestle, TechCrunch has a little background on the partnership.
“Interestingly, the link on the Android site takes you to Hershey’s site, even though Nestlé manufactures Kit Kat bars in most of the world. This stems from an old licensing deal between Hershey and Rowntree (which was acquired by Nestlé), in which Hershey maintained the ability to license the name Kit Kat in the U.S. This has led to a ton of confusion about whether Hershey or Nestlé is behind the deal.”
