Forget the hot Android rumours and the bold claims of world domination – the true stars of Android are the ultra-rare collectable merchandise. As well as creating a kick-ass OS, Android also hit paydirt with the best mascot in the mobile world, spawning a secondary market in collectables of our favourite little green man. Here are our top five rare Android finds:
Android MWC pin badges
There were 86 (yes, 86!) awesome Android pin badges on the loose at this year’s event including Freddie Mercury and Marilyn Monroe Android-alikes, and there was even a dedicated Android MWC companion app to assist with collecting.
Series 3 of Android Collectables
The third series of Android collectables has been unearthed by Android Guys and include a owl-like Android, a Nexus branded one, crazy robot and skeleton versions and five mystery ones. No word on their release date, but we gotta get them all!
Andru MicroUSB charger
An unbelievably cute desktop charger that will plug into a power source and connects via USB to microUSB cable to juice-up your devices. Andru is US-only at the moment, from Powerbygen, but WE WANT.
