VIDEO: Android Jelly Bean Hits Google's Front Lawn

Google took to the Moscone Center in San Francisco to reveal Android Jelly Bean, but the fact that Jelly Bean was on the way was no secret prior to today's keynote event. Last year's Google I/O afforded us a sneak peek at Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean rumors have increased as of late. In fact, just last week, Jelly Bean, also known as Android 4.1, was spotted on Google's Play Store. All things considered, we would have been surprised if Google hadn't brought a big ol' bag o' Jelly Beans to Google I/O.


Google did indeed unveil Jelly Bean, revealing that the OS would be rolling out over the air and hitting Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Xoom devices in mid-July. With the OTA roll-out just a couple of weeks away, that means it's time for Jelly Bean to take its rightful place on the Google lawn.
The search giant this morning posted a video of a the Jelly Bean sculpture arriving at the Google campus. This Jelly Bean-filled Andy Android joins a giant cupcake, donut, eclair, frozen yogurt dish, gingerbread man, a piece of honeycomb, and an ice cream sandwich.
