Jelly Bean is Official, Statue Arrives at Google Campus (Updated)

Update:  The picture from earlier was actually of the Android team assembling the statue. It has now been completed and is pictured above.

There you go, folks. It doesn’t get more official than this. The Jelly Bean “statue” has arrived on the Google campus. Get ready for tomorrow. 

Via:  Google+

Cheers Jeff!

    What happened to Andy’s antennae’s/face? He still looks a little unfinished…

  • Ian Eberle

    They are going to run out of space on their campus soon!

  • svfd757

    I almost like the spilled look better lol

  • balthuszar

    i like the statue laying on it’s side…looks too much like a gumball machine otherwise

    just because they announce it,doesn’t mean any one is getting it anytime soon

  • FortitudineVincimus

    what? no technology to correct the thumb in the photo issues?

  • Mchl496

    Eh Im waiting for Android Key Lime Pie

  • MrEnglish

    All that money and their lawn looks like ass. Then again, it’s all those toys.

  • MrEnglish

    Good news. Now I just hope I don’t have to buy another phone to get it. Love to see this on my Gnex before it’s a paperweight.

    • Bionic

      im assuming nexus phones will get it for sure, too new of a phone not to

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Buck/100003482949493 Joe Buck

        yep, in about a year

    i want to live there.

  • TechGuy21

    i heard with this update google will be the one pushing all updates then carriers can add their bloatware and crap.,

  • NemaCystX

    Fingerrrrrr!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Jeremy_J_Johns Jeremy Johns

    great. nobody has ICS and they pushing jellybean… what a joke

  • Prime7

    I wonder if all the jellybeans are discrete statuettes, or is the whole thing one piece carved to look like many?

    • NemaCystX

      I think they’re separate individual statuettes, as evident by the “spilled” beans picture

  • http://twitter.com/metalhead520 Nick

    Freakin Google, at least release ICS to all devices first and let it sit for a month or two before you announce Jelly Bean :-P, butthole surfers!

    • desiman26

      Can’t blame Google on that. You gotta put the blame on the manufacturers and carriers for the ICS delays.

  • Emad Zia

    stop whining people. jesus. it’ll prob be a smaller update. with the huge update ICS was physically, i foresee this to be smaller things, like variety of syncing, widgets, minor visual enhancements, etc.

    we’re in the US. get used to it. The nexus is no longer the same nexus we wanted it to be. We will always be behind without modding. wah wah. my razr with ICS makes me plenty happy, i wont be DYING for this update unless it’s really a massive update.

    PS i’m no industry expert or ever have claimed to be. i’m just saying life will go on if your device doesnt get 4.1 anytime soon.

    • Emad Zia

      and if it really bothers you, go get a winMo phone, of which 98% wont even support win8, but instead support win7.8…. or we all know the other alternative, which will give you revolutionary, market-first updates once a year.

      • JustSayin

        Hate if you want, but my 4s will be updated the life of my 2 year contract! Shouldn’t all phones at least be guaranteed to that???

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Buck/100003482949493 Joe Buck

    whoppee

  • TruthTeller

    Glad to know that Starting tomorrow the Galaxy SIII is already obsolete with yesterdays operating system. Yet again early adopters get screwed in the Google Fragmentation machine that is Android.

    • http://profiles.google.com/bhinson15 Brandon Hinson

      You are right… Google should stop updating Android that way your phone will never have yesterdays operating system. because as soon as a new one comes out the old one is obsolete and stops working.

    • PC_Tool

      I bet some cheese would go really good with that whine.

  • MooleyBooleyTroll

    Vzw Nexus may see this by years end :)

    • DroidBricker

      Mine won’t.

    • http://twitter.com/besibby Brennen Sibby

      If it’s stock maybe.. but honestly, why get a Nexus and not root it? If Jellybean comes with Assistant, there’s really no excuse to leave it stock for that long. Tomorrow will be exciting!

  • http://twitter.com/QSMinSD Q

    lol wat. VZW Gnex has been on ICS for 7 months. Razr is just getting it lol

  • http://twitter.com/QSMinSD Q

    My Nexus is ready..

    • crazyhobo5

      That’s what she said…

      • TareX

        “Plant your jelly beans in my Nexus”?

        • michael arazan

          Must be a heavy update for Andy to burst from the seams

  • Liderc

    really? trying this with the only phone that’s had ICS at all?

    0 points for you sir.

  • zaqwsx

    I can’t wait for the next big rainfall to see the jelly beans floating away like the eclair did a few months back.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Yay!!

  • fixxmyhead

    never. your lucky to get ics later this year

  • http://www.kovdev.com/ koveleski

    I want to take one of those for myself. Just to say that I did.

  • TheWenger

    YES!
    Since the ICS source code dropped within a week of the statue (IIRC), we should be seeing JB on our Nexi very soon.

  • Realistic87

    Now I’m hungry

  • RedPandaAlex

    Hoist the Jelly Roger!

  • moelsen8

    woo! can’t wait for i/o!!!

  • http://iamandroid.co/profile/rocktoonz Rocktoonz

    I’m wondering what they’re gonna use for ‘K’

    • jathak

      Probably Key Lime Pie

      • jeffxallen

        KOLACHKI! but no. Key Lime Pie.

        • PC_Tool

          Kolacky….and no, I really shouldn’t know this other than the fact that the bakery a block from my home sells them and their cake donuts are divine… (Though you did spell it like it is pronounced….)

          Yes, I know…

          …going to shoot myself now.

      • NorCalGuy

        What would you do for a Klondike bar?

    • NexusPhan69

      Key lime pie.

    • Mack

      If the go with Key Lime Pie I would love Google forever.

      Love me some goooood key lime pie haha.

    • Mike

      Wait…what the hell…their software versions are alphabetized too? Damn, I’m a moron.

        • PC_Tool

          Lemon Meringue Pie…to keep the “pie” theme going.

          No idea what they’ll do for “M” though…

          Mudslide doesn’t have the right “ring” to it (heh…names of phone oses…ring…heh…kill me now…)

          • Butters619

            Mama’s Homemade Apple Pie.

          • Setzer83

            Mango ;)

          • PC_Tool

            Mmmm….I do like me some Mangos.

            Yeah….

          • evltwn

            It won’t be Mango, Windows 7.5 is called Mango. I vote for Marshmallow. :)

        • garvit

          A- Astro
          B-Bender
          C-Cupcake

          • http://twitter.com/SirSoloDoloo Kugler

            Alpha then Beta then came the start of the Codenames

          • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

            A-Alpha
            B-Beta

            A and B were pre-open source and cupcake was the original release and backwards named

        • jothen2002

          Astro and Bender??? How does that fit?? lol

          • Mapekz

            Names of robots. Astro as in Astro Boy, Bender as in the “No one else can bend steel as good as me-Bender!” from Futurama.

            After that the Android team got hungry (and wanted to avoid potential litigation).

          • http://www.facebook.com/kerodean Dean Roberts

            I believe they were originally planning on naming them after popular robots but changed due to copyright laws.

        • balthuszar

          i believe B was butterscotch…not 100% certain though…if that’s not the case…C started the dessert names, cupcake

    • Steve Wojciechowski

      LOL, that’s funn as my friend and I were just talking about that. I also went with Key Lime Pie. We also agreed on Licorice for the next revision.

      • Mapekz

        Licorice makes a lot of sense for sure. I could definitely see myself drinking Dr. Pepper Ten with Red Vines (I know they aren’t really licorice) come Android 4.3.

    • balthuszar

      i’m excited for L…lychee?

    • Butters619

      Kiwi Tart

    • Bigboy

      I believe it should be kake

      • DoobleJay

        mmm Krumkake.

      • http://iamandroid.co/profile/rocktoonz Rocktoonz

        The kake is a lie ;)

  • eagletrippin

    It’s cool that GOOGLE continues to update their OS. But, it seems almost a moot point when nearly every Android phone has yet to get the previous iteration, or they are just now finally getting it…

    • moelsen8

      it’s not their fault. buy a nexus (just not on verizon haha). once you go nexus, you never go back.

      • J Dub

        Or at least make sure you get phones that will have an unlocked bootloader and a large dev following. Like the SGS3.

        • moelsen8

          yeah, definitely.

      • eagletrippin

        I have a Nexus…but yes, on verizon. That’s exactly the problem: fragmentation amongst the various android phone manufacturers

  • msufanspartan

    Looks like somebody spilled the beans

    • justincase_2008

      HEYo

      • fixxmyhead

        listen what i say oh

        • PC_Tool

          I hate you all. All three of you. Do you have any idea what coca-cola does to one’s nostrils?

          Do you?!?!

          ….

          It tingles, dammit. That’s right. Tingles.

          How.

          Dare.

          You.

            The best line of comments I’ve seen on DL in a while. Haha!

  • http://twitter.com/my_name_is_coal Cole Carmody

    So exicited… On a side note, Galaxy Nexus release candidate of CyanogenMod9 is out

    • moelsen8

      just not toro yet :(

  • yellowcanary73

    Who cares just get ICS out to all phones and working like it should.

    • J Dub

      What phone do you have?

    • PC_Tool

      Google’s job regarding ICS is done. They might do some touching up here and there, but the rest (getting it to you) is up to the manufacturers.

  • http://twitter.com/SL1Mike Michael Swaim

    So they will continue with the SWEETS trend by the looks of it.

    • Detonation

      That’s been the trend since the beginning…

    • PC_Tool

      It’s always been “tasty treats”.

  • http://twitter.com/SL1Mike Michael Swaim

    HAA HHHAAAA,.

  • Cantuckee

    probably the ugliest statue yet

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      If you can even call it that… a statue

      • balthuszar

        well as we notice…the word statue is in quotes…but alas…what’s the difference between a statue and a sculpture, besides the subject matter? all statues are sculptures..but not all sculptures are statues…yes?

      • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

        I liked it spilt better

        • LionStone

          Yep me too, you want me to go push it over?

          • KraYzeE

            yes! Do it you wont

          • sporttster

            These are not the jellybeans you’re looking for….

    • Mlarson6

      Should have been all green jelly beans

  • Corkis84

    I would hate to be the grounds keeper at the Google campus. “its not my fault your lawn sucks. Stop throwing your dessert everywhere.”

    • drathos

      Don’t forget, that space flooded earlier this year, so the grass is in poor shape.

  • Josh Flowers

    nifty.i wonder if anything is preventing someone from taking individual jelly beans and selling them on ebay or Craigslist…

    ….searches flights to CA…

    • http://clearrants.tumblr.com clearrants

      i would imagine all the jellybeans are stuck to each other…

      • Josh Flowers

        or like those ‘crazy beans’, they’re magnetized and would do nothing but flip end-over-end

      • http://twitter.com/nashmax73 T.A.

        No, there is one lonesome bean sitting in the grass in this pic.

      • Mack

        Hmm I don’t know, looks like that black one is off by itself…

        • Angryunibrow

          ….Too easy….

          • Jeff Tycz

            LOL nice

      • Angryunibrow

        Not that black jellybean in the back….

        • CheeseMcGee

          Of course the black jelly bean is by itself – licorice jelly beans are nasty!!

      • Steve Wojciechowski

        Imagine all the ants!

    • Dave

      I see what looks to be a dome top of sorts in the back there. They probably just spilled it for a photo op. I’m betting they’ll stand it back up-right and seal it off some time later.

    • balthuszar

      i’m sure when the jelly bean event happens, they’ll hand out bags of jelly beans to the attendees

  • Jeff Tycz

    You are welcome!! :P cant wait to see whats new
