Google booth slide TBI MWC 2011

[credit provider=”Dan Frommer, Business Insider”]

BARCELONA — Google’s Android booth at Mobile World Congress is more like an amusement park.It’s one of the biggest booths we’ve seen at the show, and easily the most crowded.

That’s because it’s awesome.

No boring pamphlets and worn out booth babes here.

Google has installed a full-size slide, a smoothie bar with free beverages, and a second-floor lounge.
