If you’re a fan of Android and you happen to live in Melbourne, Australia – we’ve got some good news for you. Telstra Corporation announced today the launch of Androidland: Australia’s and the world’s first Android store. Telstra teamed up with Google to come up with Androidland, which is located in the carrier’s flagship retail outlet in Bourke Street Melbourne. In case you’re wondering what Androidland is about, it’s going to be a store that is dedicated to Google’s popular operating system and devices that run it.
Androidland will be a retail environment that aims to inform the public about the Android operating system and its devices, as well as give consumers a hands-on experience with Android tablets and smartphones. Users will also be able to try out popular mobile services and apps that are found on Android devices.
Besides learning about Android, visitors will also be able to have fun at Androidland: from playing Angry Birds on a big screen, piloting Google Earth to creating their own Android avatar that can be printed or shared. Android experts who are specially trained by Google will be on hand to help customers set up their Google accounts, recommend apps, and answer questions about the operating system.
Androidland sure sounds like an interesting place to be. No word on whether there will be more Androidland stores opening elsewhere, but this retail outlet presence could definitely boost awareness about Android. Check out a video of Androidland below:
