“Andy” Hits the Aussie Streets of Sydney

Our favourite friend, “Andy” (Or Bugdroid to our European friends) was recently spotted on the streets of Sydney, Australia sporting a red make over and wearing a Vodafone logo.  The goal is to have the mascot go around town and make sure the locals know about Vodafone and the Android experience.  If successful, they are moving on to Melbourne, and who knows after that? Our international friends at ausdroid.net have more pictures of Andy on the move, and it’s definitely worth checking out.  I, personally would like to see Andy walking around State-side.  Granted, we have a large Android base already, but marketing is marketing, right?  What do you guys think?

Co-Pilot Live Discounts Android App For the Holiday

Despite the iPhone nature of the above video, Co-Pilot Live is a GPS alternative for you Android device that you may need to take a look at. As Android users, we already have a great GPS solution with Google Maps built into our handsets, but Maps is dependent on always having a network signal to drive the map info. Simply put, the map info is not installed on your handset, but on Google’s servers so you can access to info quickly as you move. Traditional GPS units store all their map info internally, which allows you to always have your map info wherever you go. Co-Pilot Live makes your Android handset behave more like a traditional GPS, by installing almost 1.5 GB of map info to your handset.

    They call him Bugdroid?
    I’ve never understood why every Android phone didn’t ship with a green robot sticker. Few brands have such a cool mascot, and I don’t know why they don’t take more advantage of it.

      Yeah, Bugdroid is the common name across Europe, especially in non-English-speaking nations.
