Love that they finally did this (hope it comes state side) - hate the name though. "Androidland". I feel like a few guys were sitting around trying to think up what to call it, that was the first thing someone said, and everyone else was like "eh, that's good enough". Not very creative, and kind of silly sounding. like it should be part of a national lampoons movie.
Maybe something like "Droidify" or "UDroidia". Hell, partner with Androidcentral.com and call it Android Central - The store.

It would be true if people cares about finding better deal, but a lot of them don't. As which part of the deal is crap, it is not because of the phone, it is Telstra's contract and locking to network that is the crap bit.

There's a reason this is not being done in the United States; it would be the next Gateway store or Dell mall kiosk (a ghost town).
"Designed by Telstra in collaboration with Google and handset makers Samsung, HTC, Sony Ericsson, Motorola and LG, Androidland features displays and games that will help shoppers learn about Android phones and tablets."
Nice concept but it lacks the usefulness of such store compared to Apple Store where one can Buy and get technical support also. for the Android and Microsoft stores all you can do is browse and learn. Wonder how long they can support such concept.
