I’ve overhead many a conversation over how there should be Android retail stores. Apple has their Apple Stores and even Microsoft has recently opened their first couple of Windows stores, so why isn’t there an Android store?! Well, now there is…
Androidland, the first dedicated Android retail store has opened its doors in Melbourne, Australia. The store, a result of close collaboration between Australian cellular operator, Telstra, and Google Australia, is an Android lover’s dream – home to a plethora of devices that run Google’s Android operating system.
The store provides many cool experiences for customers to enjoy, from an interactive spaceship zone that features a flight simulator that utilizes Google Earth to a massive screen dedicated to Angry Birds play to a “pixel tree” that patrons sit underneath and play with the numerous Android devices that are on display.
No word on if there are any plans to open more stores like this, but I’m sure that Android lovers in the U.S. would be ecstatic if the store would make its way stateside. Want to see what the store looks like? Check out the video tour below!
