Look on Google's Android Honeycomb statue, ye mighty, and despair!

The Honeycomb effigy features a huge bee menacing a cringing Android robot. We think this means Google is angry with us.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb is here, and its icon has arrived on the Google lawn, as witnessed in this image posted on Twitter by Google's Justin Mattson.

When Google releases a new version of its Android software, it places a large statue based on the version's code name on its lawn for geeks to worship. You may also leave offerings of food, iPhones, and code branches near the statues in a bid for more stable bug fixes from the Google gods.

Honeycomb is the tablet version of Android, and the Motorola Xoom will be the first gadget in stores to have it.
