Ice Cream Sandwich Statue Arrives at Google! (Updated: With Video)


Update:  How about some video action of the ICS statue?

And would you look at that…  

The Ice Cream Sandwich statue has arrived at Google’s headquarters within minutes of the announcement of their Hong Kong unveiling. You can’t get any more official.

Via:  Google+, Android Central

    Replayed the video multiple times..somewhere around 39 to 40 seconds into the video…that certainly looks like a big device probably one of the ICS devices being tested or just a N1 or NS.

  • Enoel69

    Can anyone discern which kind of device the lady on the Statue unveiling video is using? Is that a Nexus S or maybe one of the two devices that has eluded us all this while…Samsung Galaxy Nexus or the Nexus Prime?

    Where is the donut?

  • Nate Surber

    At 0:39 seconds.  Galaxy Nexus?

    It’s surprisingly difficult to cut an Ice Cream Sandwich.

      I’ll give you a C for effort

    The people who work on the Android team at Google are so lucky.  What I wouldn’t give to have a job where I can take a nap in that tanning-bed-looking chamber.  Bastards.

    I kind of enjoyed that – ICE CREAM MAN! Reminded me of an old Eddie Murphy bit.

    Makes me want to send a gift basket of Mangos to Redmond.

  • I literally just grabbed an ice cream sandwich from the freezer because that looked so GOOD.

    This is all the confirmation I needed.

    just a question…and maybe i’m being too observant…but why does it appear that eclair is leaving death in its wake?(note the big spot of dead grass)

    • Anonymous

      Eclair and Donut were eaten by the employees…

    • Peter Kelly

      There are also flagstones around the Honeycomb.  That dead spot may not be anything other than rock.

    • Cheuh!

      or it simply shifted.

    • Crazydog

      The Froyo didn’t!

  • Me

    That’s just creepy

  • Jake

    Maybe this is the reason that the announcement was delayed. They were waiting for the ICS statue to be in teh ground, not Steve Jobs.

    • Rp780

      Funny but, too soon bro, lol

      • Jake

        u sad bro?

        • Tyrian

          just stop while people are still liking your original comment

      DISLIKED! Seriously, someone really needs to moderate these damn comments more frequently.

      Yeah, that’s right, I’m making a proposal here. I’m offering myself up as the Official (Unofficial) Droid-Life Moderator!

      I’ll scan through the ridiculous and most distasteful comments so you don’t have to! Also, I’ll work for apps.

      Notice that last part that’s bold? I really mean it!

      (One last thing…I’m not incorrect here. People need to THINK before commenting on an open space like this. And that is all I gotta say about that)

      And no, I’m not mad, sad, or what have you, I’m just telling it like it is.

      • Kellogs

        U angry Bro?

        • Anonymous

          Oh, absolutely I am!

      • Dude it is just a comment, and a good one too. Maybe there is a reason you are not a MOD, paid or not and most are not paid and do it because they love the website.

        • Anonymous

          Yeah, was just sorta kidding around. If Kellex and the others wanted to hire freelance moderators, they would have done so by now.

          I really enjoy going to droid-life, which is why I’m still here, and that’s about it.

          But if there was a job spot open for Moderators, I’d totally apply and would do it for free.

          Moving on…lol

          • Lol, yeah I would do it in a heartbeat too. The guys that run this website are great guys 

  • Grmarco

    Most appetizing one yet!  In more ways than one.

      LOL I was thinking the same thing when I looked at the comment above hahah..

  • J Dub

    Who makes these statues? They are under wraps tighter than the phones or the OS. Funny how there aren’t leaked shots of these in the factory.

    • Nate Surber

      They probably make them there, on campus.  The statue shop is right next to the Large Hadron Collider.

  • Nate Surber

    That would make a bad@$$ mini-golf course.

    I’d shoot him if he was in my yard

    • shdowman

      Judging by the holes riddled through him, you aren’t the only one.

    I wish my job was this cool……

    Was the picture found on Picasa, taken by a Galaxy Nexus?

    Get ready for a year of waiting to get this on your phone lol. I hope they release the source code so we can get some custom roms.

    • Madcow06

      And that is why I’m getting a nexus,

      • Anonymous

        Hopefully they announce a Nexus on Verizon at Hong Kong next week.

        • Anonymous

          I would imagine Verizon will announce the release date and price.  We’ll likely get a “beginning of November” from Google.

            Also hopefully it has a working GPS. I know how Samsung rolls.

          • Tobke2

            Galaxy S II has no issues w/ GPS. I doubt they’d mess it up on the GNex.

          • Anonymous

            Hopefully. And hopefully it will change my mind about Samsung. GS1’s were a total fail.

    SWEET!! No pun intended…
