Continuing a tradition that dates back to the release of Android 1.5 Cupcake, Google has placed a new monument outside its Mountain View campus to commemorate the upcoming release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The placing of the statue, which consists of a giant Android android filled with giant jelly beans, coincides nicely with the Google I/O developer conference, suggesting the new operating system will get a full reveal there. the conference is taking place in San Francisco from today through until Friday.
We’ll be reporting on the conference from 4:30pm today, bringing you all the latest on what Jelly Bean will have to offer, and anything else Google may be revealing.
In the mean time, here’s Google’s video of the Jelly Bean statue’s official unveiling.
