jb egg

Gingerbread had a creepy skeleton zombie painting, Honeycomb packed a "tron bee," ICS hid a Nyan Droid, and now Jelly Bean too has an Easter egg to call its own.

Indeed, the egg first presents itself as a smiling red jelly bean complete with antennae when the user repeatedly taps the Android software version in settings (this can be seen on the left). In the background is whichever picture you've chosen as your wallpaper. Then, if you long-press anywhere on the screen, countless smaller jelly beans will emerge (seen on the right). What's more, you'll also be able to flick these smaller jelly beans off the screen should your spirit so desire. Here's a video to illustrate:

Nice touch, Google! Let us know if you find any more hidden secrets lying around Android 4.1.

Thanks, wattsu79!

      I have a feeling it wasn't the tablet. I got excited when I first heard it, but it's so loud that it probably came from the phone they most likely used to film the video.

        It was from the phone that was filming. DropSnap has a tendency to prematurely upload videos, after like 1MB, while they're still being recorded. Really annoying.

    are you picking your nose or something?  why did you keep taking your hand away from the screen?

      I don't remember, but I think it was to get the damn screen to focus - the EVO LTE keeps either refocusing continuously or losing focus while taking videos, which is extremely frustrating. Also I had boogers.
