This week on Android Authority On Air, not only did we celebrate episode 69 (insert joke here) with some awesome news about Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 800 processor, we announced our Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 giveaway. I wonder if there’s some sort of connection there? I guess you’ll have to watch the show to find out.
Anyways, we talked about India’s upcoming Android Nation, stores that center on hands on experience, accessories, technical assistance, demos, and more. Google announced Project Loon, which is nothing short of what we should expect from Google X. We hit up new devices such as the Samsung Galaxy NX Camera, HTC’s latest Butterfly, which includes some One love and Samsung’s table top tablet computer that runs both Windows and Android. Sony is pushing 4.2.2 to the Xperia ZL which makes it the first Non-Nexus device to get updated to (rather than ship with) Android 4.2.2. On to app news, Falcon Pro continues to have issues and Verizon Wireless decided to release a game, instead of device updates. Spotify updates to use toggles in the notification area (finally). Their last update added long needed landscape mode. Seems Play Music got their development team scrambling finally. All this and more on Android Authority On Air, the original Android Hangout show on Google+.
