Forget Disneyland: Android's Booth at MWC 2011 is the Happiest Place on Earth

It has a conveyor belt with every Android device.

I have found the promised land, and it is infested with giant green robots. Some of them are in costume. The Android Booth at MWC 2011 is the most impressive display at the entire show. It features a smoothie bar, a dozen or so giant Android statues, and a huge slide. That's right: a slide. I rode it and it was awesome.

But the coolest feature of the Android booth was a conveyor belt loaded with every single Android device ever. Mainstream handsets, weird Chinese tablets, and products as-of-yet unreleased (like the Gal S 10.1) rode past in a dizzying display of open source awesome. I sat and watched the gadgets go by for a minute or two, reflecting on the day (just two years ago) when I got my G1.

Android has grown so fast, spreading from a single handset to hundreds of devices from dozens of manufacturer's worldwide. In another year, it'll be hard to remember a time when the little green robot was the underdog, fighting against terrible odds.

Also, in another year Google may need a second conveyor belt.
