And behold, a Jellybean statue appears at the Googleplex!
In case you had any doubt as to what is coming during tomorrow’s keynote address at Google I/O, this should help you rest assured: a new statue was added to the menagerie of confectionery sculptures at Google headquarters in Mountain View, and it was (you guessed it) Jellybeans.

Not that we weren’t already expecting this, but we can now say for certain that Jellybean will be the name of the new version of Android shown off this tomorrow. We presume it will bring Android to version 4.1, and will most likely be shown off on a 7” Nexus tablet. Either way we’ll be sure to bring it all to you.

Tomorrow we will be able to look to the future and we will see what features next generations of iOS will be having in very, very distant future! :)

Me too. Which is why I bought a Nexus and not a RAZR or SGS3 or any of those other phones.

Well... this is far from true. Thanks to XDA members you can have almost immediately any new android version running on a different device than Nexus or any Google branded device.

obviously yes, but to me it came down to the overall experience. i don't see the hardware upgrade making me miss out on a lot.

Yes, you will get it, but your fellow bot heads going to have to wait another twenty-four months, unless they purchase another phone. Given the fact, ICS was released in October and only about 12% of folks have it. Maybe their OTA updates are not working.

While this news Is great and all but how about pushing ICS to more then 5% of android devices before you start talking about its successor.

4. ilia1986 unregistered

How bout you tell that to the carriers and the manufacturers? Or... just install a custom rom. :)

Yeah because Google pushes updates to phones. Learn before you spew nonsense. Or just shut the f**k up in general, that works just as well.

Google has nothing to do with the phones receiving the ICS update. Manufacturers first have to optimize the OS for their phones, and then the carriers push the update. Blame the manufacturers first. Although, with all of the complaints about their crap phones, I doubt they're concerned about an OS update.

One small step for Google, one giant leap for mankind :)

Looks good, soon Jelly Bean will come out and we'll start speculating about what new features will be in Key Lime Pie.

I'd prefer Coconut Creme, but all is good either way.

why? Coconut Creme would be extremely outdated compare to Key Lime Pie

It would be the equivalent of Cupcake, so yeah, it would be outdated.
