    Sadly, you've missed the C version...

    I predict that, continuing with the tradition now set in motion with the KitKat branding, the next version of Android will be called "Lynx Body Spray" to help sell more tablets to twenty-something mobile phone sales people.

    Or, perhaps, Lenor to help market penetration with Mums around the world?

    Apparently the deal doesn't feature any money exchanging hands, the development team just like KitKat's.

    Riesen
    S'Mores
    Toblerone

    They stayed with ASUS for the 2013 Nexus 7, not too surprising they stayed with LG for the 2013 Nexus 4 [or Nexus 5 if they bump it to a 5" screen]... though I do wonder why the Nexus devices aren't made by Motorola seeing as Google owns 'em...

    If KitKats run Android then what runs iOS and WP?

    The Kinder Bueno runs iOS: attractive on the surface, but lacks substance and ultimately leaves you unfulfilled.
    The Yankee Bar runs WP: just as good as the brand-name products - in some ways better - but still struggles to get market acceptance.
    Suntory Sparkling Chocolate Soda runs BlackBerry OS: they say it's chocolate, but we know better - and nobody really wants it when there's real chocolate on offer.

    (Note for any Danes reading this: while Yankee Bars are a popular snack in your country, in the UK they're typically only sold in discount supermarkets as a cheaper alternative to Mars Bars.)
