Earlier this week, the following crane lift project notice was posted around the famous Android statue lawn next to building 44 on Google's Mountain View campus:
Of course, this sighting sparked a variety of rumors - after all, it would only be natural to assume that any work requiring a crane lift involved a new statue being installed, which would mean we'd finally find out the name of the L release. Lemon Meringue Pie, as the LMP abbreviations have been suggesting, Lollipop, or something else?..
Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to have to wait for the truth a bit longer, as the crane lift project was completed, and the end result was the statues were just moved around a bit, reports local Mountain View developer Thomas Devaux. Compare the before and after photos below, with the latter snapped at 12:33pm September 7th (that's today, a day after the project date):
As you can see, not much has changed, and, most importantly, the L statue has not been erected. The wait continues. Hopefully, we'll know more within the next month or two.
