While you’ll not be seeing one whole heck of a lot of new details appearing on the operating system known as Android 4.4 KitKat in the following teaser trailer, you will find entertainment in abundance. Google and Nestle appear to be rolling out one – if not a whole series – of video advertisements for the public for their cross-branding effort in Android 4.4 KitKat. This video shows a couple of Androids working some magic with the chocolate candy bar.
One Android has a KitKat, gives the other Android a break, and poof! He works some magic to make the single bar completely disappear! While we could take this to mean that Android will be updated to include additional Android Beam abilities with NFC, it’s a much better bet to say that this is simply a lead-up to more candy goodness. The wrapper code situation still has a couple weeks to go, after all.
This is just the latest in a series of KitKat bits and pieces that’ve appeared over the past few weeks, stemming from the first introduction we had to the effort straight from Google. Here in Android 4.4 KitKat, Google takes what was once code-named Key Lime Pie and changes it over to this Nestle-branded effort, working with a wrapper promotion in the process.
UPDATE: A second video has appeared, this one titled “To give or not to give?”, also originating from the official Google KitKat YouTube channel this afternoon. Have a peek and expect additions!
We’re expecting the actual Android 4.4 KitKat software to appear within the next couple of weeks. It’ll be launched alongside – and inside – the LG-made Google Nexus 5, a smartphone that’s leaked like a hundred year old faucet for weeks. This device will bring Android 4.4 KitKat to the public at the same time – more than likely – that the LG-made Nexus 4 attains the build as a software update.
NOTE: This build will also be coming to the Nexus 7, as you can see in a very, very early preview here.
Have a peek at the KitKat archive below and stay tuned – we’ll be seeing the real deal soon!
