Welcome to Android Authority this week.

Inside AA HQ

October was a record month for Android Authority. On the website, we had the highest number of page views in our history. On our social channels, interaction is flourishing, as more and people follow us on Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram and Pinterest. Our YouTube channel is heading towards one million subscribers. In short, Android Authority is thriving, and it’s all thanks to you, our dear readers. With your support, we’ll continue to push forward and be your source of all things Android!

We’re finally on a new server and a new CDN connection, and the new setup is blowing the old one out of the water. Derek is also working on optimizing the software side, so the website and the forums load faster and smoother for everyone. Thanks for your patience!

Next week, we’ll finally get our hands on the Nexus 9, as the HTC-made tablet starts shipping tomorrow. Lanh is working on the Nexus 9 review as you are reading this – look for it tomorrow. The Nexus 6 and the Nexus Player are also in the house! Lollipop updates should begin rolling out in the following days as well, and we’ll cover everything in depth.
