This metallic Android statue was recently mounted on one of the buildings near the center of Google's Mountain View, CA campus. For those of you who know the campus well, it's on Building 45 (the building across the street from B44, which is known for all of the Android dessert statues).

I'm not yet convinced it's a new version of Android. Why would they put the statue across the street on a separate building when they had been putting them on the ground? Could represent a separate project related to but not encompassing the entirety of Android.
+Patrick Bui I work for Google as Android's Community Manager. I'm not a coder, I'm a user-facing person who talks to people about Android stuff and shares their feedback with the product team. To be clear, this post is a little tongue-in-cheek and is not meant to be a sneaky announcement of a new version of Android. It is, however, an announcement of a new statue. :-)
Could you make the android updated available for all users as soon as they're ready, like Apple does, because I know that an update is available for my phone yet it isn't in my country, so could you fix that little problem as soon as possible
Money wasted. They should have spent the money on hiring new employees to help our economy, create a few more jobs, and hire employees that can help make android products better for their users. I can't stand it when companies do this shit. Such glutany! Its almost as bad as seeing your boss pull up to work in his Porsche while you are jump starting your Geo metro in the parking lot and your still wondering where your raise is and how you will be able to afford gas to get you to work next week.
Probably because chromebooks are out pacing windows PC's in sales. The Droid we see here is offering Microsoft a gesture..... you can probably guess which one. And it's probably also a hint of the future too.
