I love seeing these statues. It usually means that a new version of Android – or at least the announcement of a new version – is right around the corner. Google’s delivered an Ice Cream Sandwich sculpture to the front lawn of the Googleplex, where larger-than-life representations of dessert corresponding to each major revision of Android hang out.

Yum. [via G+]
