There's really only one way to describe Google's Android booth -- and even "booth" doesn't do it justice, it's more like half a hall at Fira de Barcelona.
First off, to borrow the infamous line from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer -- developers, developers, developers. Google had a couple dozen or so developers on hand to show off their apps -- a good many on the Motorola Xoom with Honeycomb. Some we saw at the Honeycomb event a couple weeks ago, others were new.
Dominating the joint was a giant Android robot, with a slide -- yeah, a slide -- snaking around it. More on that in a minute.
There were a couple of spots for passers-by to be Androidified -- that app that came out this week that turns your picture into an Android-type avatar.
And the smoothie bar -- yeah, there is a smoothie bar -- ¡Muy bien! You could get Cupcake, Donut, Froyo or Honeycomb flavors.
No, not done yet. Remember the showcase of Android phones back at Google IO in May 2010? It's now a train that stretches probably a good 50 feet or so, with just about any Android device you can think of on board. Stuff we've never seen, even.
Talk is cheap, though. Check out the photo gallery -- and more on that slide -- after the break.
