Giant Android 5.0 Lollipop statue lands at Google HQ

Giant Android 5.0 Lollipop statue lands at Google HQ
As we all know, new Android announcements aren’t complete until a statue that represents the latest version of the platform lands at Googleplex (Google’s HQ in Mountain View). Thus, following today’s Android 5.0 Lollipop announcement, we were expecting to see a brand new statue on Google’s front lawn. Well, this is there now, and, thanks to a few Google employees, we can see it in all its glory. 

For some reason, at the moment the Android Lollipop statue is situated a bit farther from the older statues (KitKat, Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, etc). Even so, it’s pretty clear that this is the tallest Android statue ever.

Android 5.0 Lollipop will start rolling out to devices in the next few weeks, first arriving on Nexus smartphones and tablets, as well as on Google Play Edition devices.

Lollipop is, without the shadow of a doubt, a major release, quite possibly the most important since Android was first introduced way back in 2008. It brings a brand new visual language called Material Design, alongside lots of changes and improvements related to notifications, battery, contextual search and so on. Android 5.0 Lollipop is also Google’s first platform that’s ready for 64-bit processors. You can find out more about Lollipop here and here.
