The Android Vibe is all about Googleâ€™s Android platform. From smartphones to tablets, we talk about the latest goings-on with Android, and how to make the little bot work for you.
Google Glass or Smartwatch? It’s not enough to have a smartphone in your pocket these days, but now we need to wear these smart devices. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of the smartwatch is tempting, but let’s take some time and see what the developers can do with them. It’s not good enough to just have the device, but e need fun and engaging software behind it. What are your thoughts on Glass or the Smartwatch? Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
As you might hear noted from time to time in this week’s show, I finally upgraded to the Nexus 4 by Google. It is the perfect companion piece to the Nexus 7, but I won’t give a full review yet until I have had more time to put the Nexus 4 through its paces. Needless to say, I do love the phone, and am quite excited about it. For me, it was definitely worth springing for the Nexus 4 and foregoing the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Not only is Android hip, but fashionable, too! The Android Smartwatch could be a consumer-oriented device that lets us be ultra-cool without being too flashy like Google Glass. We’re not quite sure of all the features, but the Vibe will keep you posted!
The Galaxy S4 is finally here! Even though the hardware specs didn't blow anyone's mind, the software that Samsung has packed in looks absolutely incredible. Most of Samsung's new apps and features involve ways to interact with the phone without having to even touch it. Only time will tell how rock solid their engineering is, but the concepts really push the envelope for mobile technology, and should scare some of the manufacturers. Well done, Samsung! On another note, the Android Vibe website...
The big news this week is the White House’s support for protecting our right to unlock cell phones that are bought and paid for. Personally, I have very pleased to see some branches of our government thinking about the rights of consumers instead of big business. Well done, mates!
After moving the studio to a new space (more like a crawl space), the place is in shambles, but the Vibe carries on regardless. Android news is light leading up to Mobile World Congress, but rest assured we will make up for it with all the news and goodies that come out at MWC. Also of important note, I was a guest star on Google At A Glance with John Hanlon, courtesy of Net Cast Studio. Be sure the check out the show and support John and the crew.
From all reviews, CES 2013 was pretty much a bust. However, we sifted through the crap and found the highlights that encourage us to look forward to another year of Android goodness. If you have a favorite story about Android from CES 2013, send it to email@example.com
Welcome back to another year of the Android Vibe! After a holiday break, we are back with more thrilling news from the Android community. This year, our goal is to provide you with more comprehensive Android information and keep you up to speed on Android news.
This week we have two weeks worth of Android goodness. Sadly, last week I was trapped in a winter blizzard, so no show was possible. But we are back with some very interesting tidbits. We follow more news regarding Apple’s legal proceedings. Why do we follow Apple so closely, you ask? Since Apple’s sole mission is to crush Android, we must keep an eye out for what the adversary is doing. And it’s fun when Apple loses!
