Google And Telstra Androidland – Part Store, Part Theme Park

Posted by at 11:12 am on December 2, 2011

Google and Australian carrier Telstra have teamed up on the first official store to be themed around Android. Just called Androidland, it serves as a store-within-a-store similar to Apple’s model at Best Buy​ and a mix of theme park and store. While it lets users try out Telstra’s current Android phones, it also lets them play with Angry Birds and Google Earth on giant touchscreens and carnival-style games.

Google has tried the staff to handle the full experience from buying advice through to setting up and suggesting apps. Even the scent has been chosen to reflect Android, with the smell of gingerbread (based on Android 2.3’s codename) throughout.
