This may be hard to believe, but Christmas is next week. Like seriously, you have this final weekend to finish off shopping. Crazy, right?
On that note, you may have noticed that things have really slowed in terms of big Android-related news. That happens around this time every year because of the holidays and will continue through to the new year. Big companies don’t have anything to announce, people aren’t working in general, and the rest are probably sucking down as much winter ale as is humanly possible, meaning they are “busy.” Oh, and CES is also around the corner, so if there are things to be announced, they will happen then, not now.
Still, some decent things happened around DL this week, including new Android updates, big announcements from T-Mobile, and free LotR. FREE LOTR. Be sure to catch up!
