If you've ever looked at some of our past coverage of trade shows, you no doubt noticed that when Google is in attendance -- they like to do things big. They bring lots of phones to put on display, have plenty of Android gear around and its always a very hands-on experience,
Telstra in Australia has now taken some of that tradeshow feeling and turned into a retail experience with the launch of the worlds first Android store in Melbourne. After having worked with Google and various other partners such as HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericsson & Samsung to create Androidland, Telstra is planning to keep the 154 square metre store open for the next 6 months and beyond, depending on customer benefit.
Customers are welcome to come play Angry Birds on a big screen TV and more importantly go hands-on with the devices they could potentially be purchasing and get in-store help Telstra representatives. What do you guys think? Pretty Awesome right?
