Android Authority On Air – Episode 22 – Google Fiber and Other News
Google Fiber launched this week in Kansas City bringing fiber Internet and TV to area residents. If you’re a Kansas City resident, feel free to rub it in to the rest of the world that you have have 1gbps Internet. $120 / month gets you the full package and all the goods, $70/month doesn’t get you TV, but gets you Internet and lastly, if you’re cheap, you can get Internet for free after paying $300 to get your fiber laid.
Don’t want to move to Kansas City to get Google Fiber TV? That’s OK. You can try the generation 2 Google TV from Vizio. That is, if you can find their Co-Star device. That thing is HOT. It sold out of the initial stock in 12 hours. And no wonder it’s hot, it comes with OnLive gaming and costs only $99. Not bad.
The Xoom WiFi officially got Jelly Bean this week. If you don’t have a Google reference device, the CyanogenMod team has you covered. This past week we saw well over a dozen devices get official CM10 previews.
Last but not least, we announced a very special show for next week.
