Submission + - Google's Retail Stores Will Help it Reclaim Android (

DavidGilbert99 writes: "The state of Android at the moment is a bit of a mess. It is available on thousands of different devices in hundred of countries with each looking slightly ( or in some cases significantly) different from the original.

Google has attempted to show off what plain ole Android can do with its Nexus smartphones and tablets, but the devices have gotten lost in the flood of Sony Xperias, HTC Ones and of course Samsung Galaxys.

Therefore, reports that it will open its own retail stores is good news for the platform, as Google will be able to showcase how well the 'pure' Android experience works and customers will be able to see clearly what Android is and what it does."
