Android is taking over according to all the stat reports and user surveys released these days. But what happens when the green robot commands a large space of one of the major mobile phone events in the world?
In Hall 8 of Mobile World Congress, Google has an Android zone that takes up a big chunk of space. There are product demos of Google and third-party apps, massive statues, giveaways, and even a smoothie bar serving up treats with an Android theme (Cupcake, Donut, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb). It’s one of the most popular and crowded destinations at MWC.
Exhibitors throughout Barcelona have large Android logos at their main desk to signal that they offer Android products. It’s a sign of the times, as is the large Nokia section directly behind the Android area that never seems as crowded or exciting whenever I stop by. I wonder why. Here’s a video showing how Android made a splash at MWC.
