Remember our little friend Andru? Of course you do (and if not, I've conveniently linked a reminder in the first sentence, so you can act like you do)! He's so tiny, adorable, and charges your device with the greatest of ease. With all his charm, it's no surprise that he's one of our favorite Android accessories.

While he's quite the looker with his green exterior, he's going to be getting a makeover over the next month or two, and will be available in three more colors: black, white, and pink. Artem is at CTIA right now and spent some time with the little guys, so he snagged a few pics for us.

That's not all, though! Andru will also be going international later this year, as adapters will be available for Australia, UK, and Europe in about four months.

Lastly, an Andru car charger is expected to be available in early 2013. Unfortunately, the car charger isn't available for viewing at CTIA, so we weren't able to snag a pic of that one.

We're so proud of little Andru - he's growing up so fast!

If you haven't already, you can get your very own Andru right here.

    Those international adapters are perfect for Andru, he just sits right in them like a cradle.

    I also asked about a 2A variant, but they said they could only do 1A in that size and didn't want to go bigger. For phones 1 Amp is not an issue and charges them just fine. Haven't tested with a tablet, but it may not charge those as fast, unfortunately.

    Still, one of my favorite Android accessories, as it's really well built and looks great. Those dreamy glowy eyes...

      I agree - I have two of them and they're always trying not to get stolen by friends and family members!  Even my [not so close] iThing friends want to walk away with him, haha

      Actually the original (US) design is better to be displayed (and charge your phone) on the desk if you have power socket mounted on the surface of your desk.

      Well I am tempted to get one, but I would like to see a tri-prong UK certified power adapter on that little Andru device before I even consider buying (why doesn't America use an earth wire?). Having said that it looks like a cute and darn useful little accessory to have around and show my Android pride! XD

      Does it do iPhones too, Artem? XD

    "charger isn't available for viewing at CES"  Don't you mean CTIA?

      Ha, I just did the same thing in my Kyocera post too (/facepalm). Fixed it up, thanks Justin.

      I recommend this phone! Prices are more reasonable! Better than the other!

    I have one, love it. But can we get one of those cool little adapters for the U.S as well. The one that allows you to keep Andru vertical/upright when plugged into a wall outlet? Right now my Andru is connected to a Surge strip just so he can stay upright, but those International adapters looks like it'd keep him upright against the wall outlet, I need one for the U.S

    as cute as it is, it could benefit from being a bit cheaper

    • TylerChappell

      And 7 months later, turns out I got mine for as cheap as possible, completely for free (the dark addition)! I totally forgot I had left this comment 7 months ago and now just seeing it again and knowing I was able to win mine from DL is a strange little deja vu

    The 3 pronged UK adaptor looks a LOT more stable than the other 2... 

    Really looking forward to getting one!
