Android Authority On Air - Episode 26 - Samsung vs Apple Verdict and Vizio CoStar Review

Google TV and the Vizio Co-Star Review. Must have Google TV Apps. Co-Star initial impressions. Samsung vs Apple Verdict, thoughts and reflections. The next Nexus device rumors include devices from Sony, Samsung, and LG.
August 25, 2012

During this weeks show, we were joined by special guest Chris Hollis of Google TV Friends to help us with our Vizio Co-Star and Google TV review. As you may know, this week the $99 Google TV set top box started to arrive for those that pre-ordered. We go over initial impresses ions, setup and configuration, software/UI, and popular, must have Google TV apps.

It’s that time of year again. Right before the fall season when we start to see rumors pop up all over the place regarding the next Nexus phone from Google. This time around, the rumor mill is running full force with leaks pointing towards at least three Nexus phones. The Sony Xperia Nexus, the LG Optimus Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus II are rumored thus far. Interest sparked? Yes.

Just a few hours before the show the verdict dropped for the Apple vs Samsung trial. As this is an extremely important trial for the largest Android smartphone manufacturer, we figured we better talk about it. I think most of us agree, Samsung was wronged, the jury was blind, and we can’t wait for the appeal.

Besides the big stories this week, T-Mobile has axed their version of the Galaxy Note after two weeks. The HTC Thunderbolt got a leaked ICS ROM and the HTC Incredible 2 got one as also. The Samsung Galaxy S3 leaked all over the place this past week, for both the international version and the T-Mobile version. And Facebook goes dogfooding with Android.
