We already knew Android is huge, but this takes it to a whole new level! What you're looking at above sits in a Best Buy store in San Carlos after having been installed there last night. For the moment, it's one of a kind but Google is using the setup as a test to see how well they will do in stores.

The display is a glorious 42 inches of touchscreen Android love and functions by making use of a specially equipped Nexus S with video-out capabilities and even has a working camera. Google did the same for the initial Nexus One launch but unlike that display, this one actually functions just like a real device. Hit the break for a video showing off the display in all its glory.

That size would be overkill for touch, but, make it work in landscape mode and with a wiimote and I would hang it in my living room right now.

So. What does it cost off-contract?

zhecht says:

My local mall has one of these set up for the EVO 4G.

silverfang77 says:

Is the giant machine an actual working phone with its own CPU, antenna and all, or is it a touch screen monitor that's hooked up to a remote phone that you can interact with?

Works for me! I have large, cumbersome fingers!

biggbrother2 says:

Did they add 4G to this one?

capitaltpt says:

They found if you hug it a certain way, it drops the signal.

Guess you can forget about putting that one in the front pocket of your jeans.

gcims says:

discgolferX says:

Is that a 42" EVO in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

circustravis says:

Does it have Honeycomb on it? Maybe that's why it's that size.

Cause Honeycomb's big... yeah yeah yeah!

Marshy says:

Ytaay says:

i think that's the Geico Gekko's phone. He's gonna want that back.

gcims says:

We need AC to post a pic of Jerry or Phil holding this up to their ear walking around at the mall.LOL!

bladerunn3r says:

Think about it though... with a case... it's really going to be too big to fit in your pocket.

Probably not the first guy or gal to say it, but imagine Angry Birds on this thing!!!!!

Clak says:

I can't be the only one who thought of 2001 when they saw this.
