The Jelly Bean statue now joins other dessert-themed statues on Google's lawn, including an Ice Cream Sandwich, Donut, Cupcake, andEclair, all representing the different versions of Android.
According to ABC News, Google will share the details on Jelly Bean at its Google I/O conference in San Francisco, where the firm will preview and demonstrate the software for developers and press; no real details have been shared on what the operating system will include.
The current version of Android, called Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0, was released last November which brought sweeping changes to the mobile phone and tablet operating system, and was released with a phone called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as it worked closely with Samsung to create a phone for the new software.
Google also is expected to release a new Nexus device, except this time it is a tablet. Rumored to be called the Nexus 7, Google-watchers believe the tablet will have a 7-inch screen, a quad-core processor, made by Asus and will be priced at 199 dollars.
