Every once in a while we get a humorous tip that is just too good to pass up. Check out what happens when you translate "Android 2.3.4" from German to English with Google Translate:

Whoops! It looks like you'll get the same result when you search for any version with 3 digits, from 2.2.1 to 2.3.4. Hit the link below to see it for yourself.


Thanks, Josh!

    Epic lulz. I literally lolled when I saw this.

    It's actually german to anything. It doesn't have to be german to english. I still find it strange that it's only with the X.X.X after it..

      And not with all Android versions either - only some work.

    Considering how google translate works, it's not completely out of the blue...


    Still embarrassing, though.

    No wonder the stats for how many Europeans buying a smartphone were heavily skewed toward iPhone. All of the Germans actually said Android but it translated wrong. :-)

    I think this has been fixed, doesn't work anymore!

  • Buddy

    if you're dumb enough to translate "android" you probably own an iphone! :D
