When Android’s first update – Cupcake, aka version 1.5 - was released back in April, a giant cupcake appeared beside a giant model of the famous green android at Google’s Googleplex headquarters near San Jose.

Although the cupcake was never paired with a giant donut - to signify September’s release of Android’s Donut update, aka version 1.6 - a video of a giant éclair being placed beside the cupcake has since appeared online.

Google hasn’t officially acknowledged éclair – giant or otherwise – yet, but it’s believed that Android smartphones could receive the update during Q2 2010. ®
