Jelly Bean Makes Official Cameo On Googleplex Lawn, Announcement Tomorrow

With every new Android release, a statue is placed on the Googleplex lawn with whatever dessert version codename for Android Google utilizes. Well, it’s that time again, and a cup of spilt jelly beans have arrived on the Googleplex lawn. So what does this confirm exactly? We know that with the Google I/O keynote less than 24 hours away, we’re going to see a lot of Jelly Bean talk tomorrow morning.

So what do you want to do with next edition of Android?

If you want a full rundown of what we expect at Google I/O, we’ve got a full breakdown including the Google Nexus 7 tablet, Google Assistant and Project Glass over at DroidDog. It’s a great read, so check it out and see what we think we can expect tomorrow.

    It’s funny how every new update is either a desert or candy. I expect Candy Cane to follow around Christmas time. LOL

    • Deadeye37

      The names are in alphabetical order (cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo, gingerbread, honeycomb, ice cream sandwich, and now jellybean).  Maybe if they put in “kandy kane”, they can do it.

      I wonder what sweet will be next that starts with a ‘K’.  I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.

      edit: Maybe they can get a name brand sweet: Kit Kat – my 2nd favorite candy bar

      • Caseybea

         “Kringle”.   It’s a danish-style treat.

        • FILA

          Wow, good one man, tie that with a christmas release it would be petty cool like gingerbread in 2010, but this holiday is wayy to soon for another update, its been a short ride for Ice Cream, not ready to see it leave yet

      • Damanjeff10

         Key Lime Pie

        • Spanky

          That’s what I’ve been hearing as well.

    • They are in alphabetical order:

      Ice Cream Sandwich

    • Ndurden2

      They go in alphabetical order
      Next one will be something dessert with a K

      • BookLover15

         I’ve been hearing Key Lime Pie:

        But who knows? All I know is, after dealing for years with Android lags and force closes, I’ll be switching to Windows Phone 8 as soon as the second generation of WP8 phones come out (you know, without the bugs new OSes sometimes have).

        • Izzybrexx

          I’m hungry now.. Lol

        • BookLover15

           Lol now that you mention it, so am I. lol

    • fixxmyhead

      u have no idea do u?

  • Guest 29P

    Glad I have a Galaxy Nexus! hope they send us Jelly Bean this week or post it for download.

  • JBLmobileG1

    On an added note… if they keep it up they will have Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory on the lawn of Google Headquarters.

  • Deadeye37

    “So what do you want to do with next edition of Android?”

    Install it on my G2!

  • Xavier

    the only issue with android…too many versions..not enough having the same at the same time.

    : (

    • Mattcat03

      What you just said is like saying there’s too many options or too many to chose from. Maybe you should get an iphone.

      • Xavier

         no way lol

        i love my android.  but damn…at least let the devices now get ICS, a majority of them are running gingerbread, NOW.

        ICS is only in a few devices and now there’s talk of jelly bean?!?!

        definitely not a complaint, just a plea

  • Fish

    I’ve been waiting for tmo to approve gwallet. Maybe the new version will be authorized?

    It’s great that Asus is making their first nexus tablet. If I was in the market for a tablet then I would definitely want to look at it. However, I’ll be getting a win8 tablet.

    You cant beat androind for phone use and i will be sticking with nexus pbones (windows phone cant even stream pandora over BT, lame) How long after its release do you think my NS will get 4.1?

    • Sean W

      Google wallet is currently downloadable from the Play Store on the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus on T-Mobile. It works, but many locations don’t support NFC payment yet (at least in my area).

      • Fish

        One of the requirements to be able to use it is you have to be on sprint’s network as mentioned in all the docentation. Google wallet is not n available choice when looking at my market on the phone.

        I can push the app to my phone from the play store online but I’m quite sure that will only work with prepaid money cards if it works at all off sprint.

        • Sean W

          I have used the official app quite successfully on my nexus in T-Mobile. I only get the unsupported device warning if it’s rooted. Even then, the prepaid card works fine.

  • MarcusDW

    The big question is, will the G’Nex get Jellybean or Jellybean .3 or .4 later in the year?

    I really hope this update isn’t a Honeycomb like update where it’s just for tablets.

    • The code trees have been merged. There is no “only tablet” software anymore. ICS merged the two devices. All phones and tablets should have the ability to get updated.

  • Cystic

    It’s nice that Google gets distracted by stupid shite like project glass. As if human beings don’t have enough distractions while engaging with one ; another.
    ” Oh sorry but is our conversation getting in the way of your words with friends notifications”
    ” Oh sorry do you need to interrupt our conversation so you can respond to that Facebook update fart joke”

  • gwhyte01

    A letter to google.

    You are a bunch of dumbasses. how about you finish working on getting ics on ppl’s phones before you even think about putting jelly bean on the market. Hell, how about getting gingerbread on the rest of your phones.

                                                                                                       Thank you.
                                                                                         one of your millions of sensible fans.

       It’s not “their” phones.  Gripe to the manufacturers who do their own take on Android(Sense and Touchwiz) and the carriers for wanting their bloatware on it.  It’s not Google’s fault at all.  The manufacturers could just put Android on without any of the crap and update the phones almost as soon as it comes out, just like the Nexus phones.

    • Google doesn’t push the updates to all Android phones..

    • Mattcat03

      You are barking on the wrong tree. Get your facts straight before you start on a “rampage”
      Google creates the software updates and pushes them out on their google phones. If you don’t have a google phone than it’s up to your carrier to push the updates to your phone. 

      • Get_at_Me

        Agreed!!!! If you buy into the nexus line, this would never be an issue.  Google isnt responsible for updating carrier branded phones or anything outside of the nexus for that matter…..

        •  Yep! This is exactly why I’m waiting for the Google November 5th announcement instead of hopping on the Galaxy S lll  bandwagon. 5 new nexus devices. At least one is bound to be a kick ass phone and it will be my next upgrade. 

        • Xavier

           yea, another reason why i didn’t snag the GS3 right away.

          google phones look might tempting…and they will always get first priority in updates

        • None


    • Justin

      You don’t see Apple or Microsoft having problems pushing updates out. They don’t have that problem because they don’t let the phone manufacturers and the carriers tell them what to do. They do what they need to do to make their product work.

      • Kalel33

         Android is open source, which means they can’t tell the manufacturers what to do.  They just release the code and anyone can do with it what they want.  Android is free for anyone to use.  If I wanted to live in a walled garden then I’d choose Apple or Windows but I like openness

    • Doomazz

      Feel better princess?
      When you bought your phone did they promise you an update?
      If your really really nice maybe Google will send you a Google branded blanket and teddy bear.

  • Mario214mac

    native support for emoji would be a nice addition for the next version of android
