Every year at Mobile World Congress, the Android Garden is where Google presents its best products and services, from Android (obviously) to Google Assistant, Maps, and Photos. However, Google and its partners also provide one of the biggest challenges for all attendees who want to participate in something super fun: the Android Partner Walk. Specifically, the challenge to collect two exclusive pins per company, which are only available on certain days.
These pins have become the unofficial trade of MWC, with everyone from attendees to Googlers themselves vying to complete their collection of pins unique to that year's show. I've witnessed trading so intense it resembles a bazaar, and have been forced trade several duplicate pins to secure one pin that's been eluding me.
That brings us to this year's contest. For one lucky Android Central reader, we've got a full collection from this year's MWC to give away!
That's not all — with Google I/O kicking off tomorrow with the expected announcement of the Pixel 3a, Nest Hub Max and of course, Android Q, we have an amazing top prize for one lucky winner. Each year, Google launches an I/O-specific figurine that can only be acquired during the conference.
We're privileged to be able to experience events like MWC and Google I/O, and it wouldn't be possible without you, our loyal readers. To say thank you, we're giving a few of you the chance to have your very own piece of Google and Android history.
Our top prize features:
- Collection of exclusive Android pins from MWC
- One Google I/O 2019 figurine
- A $200 Google Store gift card
Nine lucky runners up will win a Google I/O 2019 figurine.
