Androids at Google I/O (photos)

Just as Android pins were a hot commodity at the 2011 Mobile World Congress, collectible Android figures were a top attraction at Google I/O 2011 in San Francisco.

The one and original

One of the top sights at Google I/O is the display case of Android phones from around the world. And joining the handsets this year were a selection of collectible Android figures. The Bug Droids (as Google likes to call them) come in a range of colors and styles, from cute to a little strange. If you'd like to buy your own set, a company called Dyzplastic makes the official Google-sanctioned products.

Here's the little guy that started it all. You know him best in green, but he comes in blue as well.
