Google has a tradition of naming their Android OS after tasty treats with all the logos taking pride of place in the form of themed statues outside their Android headquarters. The latest Honeycomb OS has received its statue today and Google took little time to put the word out via a video and a blog post.
The first statue to appear was of course cupcake and the large honeycomb statue has now joined it, the donut, éclair and Froyo on site. The statue is a large piece of honeycomb with an Android emerging from one of the cells, worryingly for the little green alien a rather large bee seems to be crawling towards him – eeek!
Honeycomb will first be seen on the Motorola Xoom tablet which is due to launch in the UK in April for £449 and is currently available for pre order from Carphone Warehouse. Other tabs that will feature the specialised OS include the Samsung Galaxy Tab II and LG Optimus pad.
