"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?

    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.
