MANILA, Philippines – Google released some important announcements recently regarding the state of the Android operating system, noting a milestone for Android activations and a new flavor of the OS.
On Google+ and Twitter, Sundar Pichai, Google’s head of Android and Chrome, announced the company has gone past the 1 billion Android activations milestone.
Pichai also made mention of a new statue on the Google campus: a version of the Android mascot that looks like a KitKat bar.

A bit of digging revealed that the KitKat Android statue was there to commemorate the development of Android 4.4, which they’ve codenamed KitKat in partnership with Nestle. Nestle also sent out a tweet to commemorate the team-up.
While no release date has been slated for Android 4.4 KitKat, it looks to be an intriguing partnership with a hopefully tasty future release for Android fans. – Rappler.com
