The question that is on everyone’s mind that has not been answered at the 2009 Mobile World Congress is the name of the Google Android robot.
I was asked this question from Donte Reed so I sent emails & tweets to Google Android engineers and developers.
Alexander Muse of Big In Japan (developers of ShopSavvy) said, “In all seriousness we call him Mike. Most of the Google folks we talk to do too.”
The Google Android engineers I heard back from say they call him Droid or in a fit of rage BugDroid.
As for the giant Android robot statue outside the Google office most call him BigDroid and the dog is Alex.
I figure this is more interesting than the detailed Adobe statement of Flash coming to Android by the end of 2009 or the nice packaging, little substance of the G2 Magic which will only go out to Europe for the foreseeable future.
Of course there was the Android “not an iPhone cuz it has blue side stripes and doesn’t turn on” phone from Huawei out of China as seen here.
Speaking of names, the contest winner of the FREE Hello, Android book is Bara Kathawa! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
