The Android Community is ever-changing: Meet your new EIC

Over the coming weeks and months you'll be seeing some changes here at Android Community. The first of which involves a little re-shuffling of roles.

Happy New Year from Android Community

Happy New Year! While the Android Community team will be enjoying some down time today, we did want to mention a few things. Aside from wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2014, we have to say thank you for 2013. After all, without you we would not be able to do what we do. We have a few posts planned for today that take a look back at the year, but quite honestly, we are pretty excited about the year ahead.

Happy Holidays from Android Community

Instead though, this will be called the Tegra Note and sold from many 3rd party suppliers they use today in their GeForce PC lineup. eVGA, PNY, Zotac and more. We won't see watercooled tablets, but you can bet they'll still perform quite well.

The entire Android community and Android Open Source Project (AOSP) has suffered a great loss this month, as the lead technical engineer known as Jean-Baptiste Queru left the team last month and has now been hired by Yahoo.

Google’s Android reaches 1 billion device activation milestone

Today Google's Senior Vice President and current head of Android Sundar Pichai just shocked the Android world by posting a few beautifully timed posts on his social network pages. For one he has confirmed the next version of Android will be 4.4 (not 5.0) and will be called KitKat. Say goodbye to Key Lime Pie.
