Android Authority On Air - Episode 24 - Weekly News Recap (aka back from the beach!)

August 12, 2012
As you may have noticed, we didn’t air our normally scheduled On Air live broadcast last Friday night. Yours truly was soaking up the sand, salt water, and sun at the beach. I thought about bringing my notebook and doing an On Air – Beach Edition broadcast. However, I decided to ditch the notebook for a week and fully enjoy my Nexus 7 as my main computing device. And let me tell you, it was amazing (the vacation and the tablet). The Nexus 7 is the prefect vacation computer. It accomplished everything I needed it to and being extremely portable, this tablet made it hassle free.

While I was off on vacation, as usual, the Android world moved forward. Verizon now allows you to share everything and then some with more data tiers while Sprint is giving away a free tablet with new smartphone purchases. HTC’s upcoming 5″ tablet…er phone ran around the rumor mill this week with a possible October 1st launch date. The OUYA Android Game console Kickstart project finally came to an end. OUYA was completely successful in raising $8.6 million, sadly we have to wait 7 months to get our units. Don’t worry HTC Thunderbolt and Desire S owners, you’ll be getting Jelly Bean “soon” according to HTC on Facebook. CM9 hits stable, paving the way for CM10 and the HTC Dream / G1 gets a working Jelly Bean CM10 port. Google has to disable copy protection temporarily to fix a bug that was breaking a lot of apps. Last but not least, the SGS3 wins in a drag race versus the iPhone 4S.
