    There is a new mystery statue at Google HQ. They added a chrome colored Android statue to one of their windows. They haven't shared any details on what this new sculpture could mean, but it obviously gets the imagination wandering. Here's a quote from the Google+ post by Google Employee Paul Wilcox,

    What do you guys think the statue portends?

    I think it has to do with maybe a new version/type of google chrome for android or.....like what was already said, a new line of high end chrome books.

    I think this is a new Chromebook/Android tablet device to compete head-to-head with Microsoft Surface.

    It would include a touchscreen, keyboard, and be convertible from tablet to web-book/laptop mode via connecting the keyboard.

    I read this was a possibility and this "Chrome Android" seems to make sense.
