Android's new neon look

January 27, 2011: 3:26 PM ET

A new logo was found in the Android 3.0 that seems to blend the old Android, Honeycomb and Tron.

Along with the new look of the 'holographic OS', Google (GOOG) is rolling out some new icons in its Android 3.0 OS.  Found by developers at AndroidCommunity inside the just released Android SDK, the new neon Android logo (pictured, right) looks to replace the green guy we've grown accustomed to.

As this particular design is a bee which fits with the Honeycomb OS codename, it will likely be replaced again when the next version of the OS, Ice Cream (sandwich) comes along.

The radient blue isn't the only riff on Tron, the whole OS seems to have that retro look and feel, especially the new clock.  Video walkthrough posted below:
