Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for January 4, 2014

This past week was another holiday week, and as a result, another slow week in terms of news. That isn't to say we didn't see anything exciting, however given the past week was a holiday week and next week is CES -- it seems many were simply holding and waiting. We expect plenty of goodness to come out of CES, but for now, let us take a look back at the highlights from the previous week.

A year in review: Android Hardware in 2013

In 2013, we saw a wider variety of devices than in recent years. Not only did we see the continued spec race heat up as we got our first taste of Snapdragon processors from Qualcomm, but we saw some OEMs wisely pare their efforts back a bit. HTC went with one One, and Motorola took their time bringing new devices to market. Whether it was flagship spec-heavy offerings or a shockingly slimmed-down device, we had a lot of great stuff in 2013.

Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for December 21, 2013

Another week has wrapped and that puts us one step closer to the end of the year. This time a year generally brings a slow down in news and announcements, but that is not to say there wasn't anything exciting this past week. Granted, we are expecting to be much busier come CES time, but for now we are still looking at stories from Motorola. And while they have been keeping up on the Kit Kat rollout, Samsung has been doing steady work with Android 4.3.

Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for December 14, 2013

Another Saturday is upon us and that means it is time to take a look back at the highlights from the past week. There were some interesting, not to mention surprising stories that surfaced this week. One example appeared just last evening -- the talk of Sprint considering a purchase of T-Mobile. Whether this would make it through the necessary regulatory approvals is another story, but nonetheless, seeing Sprint purchase T-Mobile could make for an interesting shakeup in the mobile industry.

Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for December 7, 2013

Another week has passed and this time around that meant some new apps, some updated apps, some competition for Google Glass from Vuzix with the M100 and even a bit more about Motorola. The Motorola news was in regards to the troublesome Moto X Cyber Sale. As those who were watching saw, the sale day came and went. Needless to say, what was expected to be a one day Cyber Monday sale turned into a two-day special offer.

Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for November 30, 2013

This was a holiday week for those in the US market, and as we often see, that meant a sort of slow down for news and other announcements. While the week overall was on the slower side in terms of device and update news, there were a few goodies that popped up this week. Notably, Motorola was once again in the limelight with the earlier than expected US release of the Moto G.

Android Community Weekly Wrap-Up for November 23, 2013

Looking back this was a pretty exciting week for Android users, specifically, for those carrying a Moto X and hoping to get Kit Kat. Motorola is making good on an earlier promise to have Android 4.4 available and those carrying a Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile Moto X received the update earlier in the week. The update recently began arriving for AT&T users as well. Of course, along with the Moto X, Kit Kat has begun arriving for some Nexus device users.

Android Community CES 2013 Wrap Up

While the biggest news in general from CES this year was probably massive HDTVs with 4k resolutions and such, we still saw tons of Android goodness this year. The growing trend is each manufacturer (like Samsung) want their own stage at a separate event to announce their latest and greatest, so most the big hitters were missing this year from the mobile scene. However we still have plenty to show you so lets take a look.

The top game changing Android devices of 2012

The holiday fun is over and we're officially kicking off 2013 with a quick rundown of some of the top smartphones and tablets to rock the past year. There was multiple "flagship" devices that arrived this year from multiple manufacturers but we all know who the true champ was, and that's Samsung. Read on to see what made the Android Community list.
