Budding astromoners might know March 24th as the anniversary of the discovery of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, a comet that ultimately collided with Jupiter in July 1994. However, the rest of us simply see this Sunday as the end of another week of Android news.
This week we’ve seen rumours of a subscription news model in Google Play, Sony’s unveiling of the Xperia SP and Xperia L handsets and the announcement of a new service from Google, Keep. Let’s jump in and take a look!
We’re into the third week of 2013 and the 62nd day of the year. You might know it as the birthday of Brian Cox, but it also happens to be the culmination of another week of Android news.
Since last week’s instalment, we’ve seen hardware announcements at Mobile World Congress, the release of Photoshop Touch on iOS and Android and more. Let’s dive in and take a look…
This week saw the Consumer Electronics Show — or CES — take place in Las Vegas, an annual gathering of the technology industry to show off the latest and greatest. As with recent years, a big focus has been on Android and the evolving smartphone and tablet landscape. In this special edition of This Week In Android, we’re going to take a look at some of the show’s big announcements and call out a few of our favourites.

As one might expect, one of the final weeks before the end of the year and less than a month before CES 2013 did not bring a plethora of new device announcements but we did see a few app updates and plans to upgrade a number of phones to more recent versions of the OS.
The Consumer Electronics Show showed off many different Android devices, including a handful of new phones and new tablets. However, while those devices headlined Android’s appearance at the show, hardware manufactures also introduced new uses of the operating system on devices including watches and webcams.
Let’s take a look at those devices…
The Consumer Electronics Show has just finished, ending a week of technology demonstrations. This year did bring fewer headlining Android announcements, with Windows Phone 7 devices, Ultrabooks and TVs sharing the spotlight, but there’s still some significant news which we’ll look at over a few posts.
Let’s start off with the new Android phones…
For months people was expecting the announce of the Sony tablets, previously known as S1 and S2 in rumors. Sony finally announced them at IFA 2011, now with the (just slightly better) names of Tablet S and Tablet P. Both tablets are “Playstation Certified“, and each has an exotic design. But are these features really worth it?
