Google's Android Honeycomb OS gets official HQ statue

Honeycomb joins array of previous Android OS figures

Honeycomb joins Gingerbread, FroYo, eclair and Donut in Android lineup

Keeping with tradition Google has unveiled the official statue representing its latest Android OS release outside of its Android HQ.

Dubbed Honeycomb, the tablet-specific Android 3.0 operating system was officially unveiled late last year in a demo featuring Google’s Andy Rubin and a then unnamed Motorola tablet, now dubbed the Xoom and available for pre-order in the UK priced £450.

Having kicked off with cupcake, the dessert-based Android operating systems have all been turned into visual representations with the latest Honeycomb offering, depicted by an Android mascot peaking from a section of honeycomb featuring a bee, joins the donut, éclair, frozen yogurt (FroYo) and Gingerbread statues.

One of the main talking points around this year’s Consumer Electronics Show and Mobile World Congress, Honeycomb is lined up to touchdown on a number of key tablet devices in the coming months with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the 3D capable LG Optimus Pad.

What will future iterations of Google’s Android OS be called if following the current dessert-based naming process? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
