India’s first Android Nation store will likely to be opened in New Delhi and might open in more cities of India as companies have plans to convert around 50 Spice HotSpot retail outlets into AndroidNation stores that presently located in India and Dubai.

The AndroidNation store will be more than just a store for its customers and will act as an Android experience centre where customers can find out  latest info about Android apps, get help from experts, download software updates or check out the latest accessories for their devices.

India is now become 2nd country to get Android Nation retail outlet that will sell Android devices such as smartphones and tablets manufactured by brands including Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, ASUS, and others. In a similar fashion Google has opened World's first AndroidNation outlets in association with mobile company EraFone in Jakarta, Indonesia.
