Will Android Rule the World?

If the jam-packed Android booth at Mobile World Congress, the ubiquity of the robot logo, and the line of people queuing up 2 hours ahead of Erik Schmidt's (swan song) keynote, then the answer is "yes." The booth actually had a nice vibe to it; though it was crowded, it was also quite easy going and people were enjoying themselves. There was a nice smoothie bar making interesting flavored drinks named after Android releases (Honeycomb, etc.). The entire space was really focused on app and hardware partners showing off their wares (all wearing matching t-shirts no doubt provided by Google - take that fragmentation!)

People enthusiastically used the slide.

In the balcony overlooking the floor were tables with lamps, and mounts holding Android smartphones. With people sitting around they looked like digital hookah pipes.

The green robot mascot is the best (and best-used) logo Google has ever had, and it's everywhere at the show.
