This is the second in a Technology Blogged series of round up posts to be published weekly detailing the 10 best websites within a specific niche. Last week, we published our Apple Edition.
If you regularly catch up with the very latest technology news online, you will have noticed that unless you are on a niche website, a lot of coverage is made up of smartphone reviews and new releases. That’s only natural, taking in to account the smartphone market is a boomin’, and at this very technology blog we regularly cover smartphones and tablets, the majority of which run some version of Android.
Android is the most widely adopted mobile operating system in the world, made successful in large part due to almost every consumer electronics manufacturer utilizing it for some form of device. Now at version 4.2 Jelly Bean and better than ever, the operating system has found its way on to some truly fantastic hardware and during 2013 that hardware is set to get better than ever. What better way to celebrate this than make a list of the best Android websites offering timely updates on news, then?
Tune in to Technology Blogged next week for our next ’10 best websites to follow’ post, the social media edition.
What better way is there to follow Android than to bookmark the official blog for it? The Official Android Blog went live when Google finished up creating the original consumer viable version of Android, and it features regular updates on apps and the operating system itself.
I am a firm believer that having a good name in life gets you very far, and Little Green Robot has that covered rather nicely. This blog includes Android video tutorials, a wealth of brilliant guides as well as tips and help for any Android users struggling with their handset.
Phandroid has for a good year and more been a go to resource for Android news, rumours and increasingly reviews. It features great writing, coverage any regular technology blog could only dream of and dedicated social media channels. If you love Android, be sure to hit this site up.
DroidDog is the Android specific niche website owned by PhoneDog Media. DroidDog offers up some really great editorial content which is a pleasure to read, as well as first impressions and reviews on a number of highly sought after Android powered devices.
5. Android Pit
Love apps? Then Android Pit is a definite bookmark for you. This Android specific website discusses 90% apps available on the Google Play Store, with reviews of apps and round up posts aiming to help you download the best apps no matter what their category.
I love the logo on this website! Android and Me delivers up to date Android news on all Android powered smartphones as well to a lesser extent tablet computers. Although content is not added at an overly regular rate, it is of a to the point high quality nature.
7. Droid Life
Droid Life is a really great Android website with some of the very best Android device reviews available online. These guys know their stuff, and if you like Android writing with a bit of tech to it, then Droid Life is a must hit up in the near future.
This Android blog is dedicated to the Nexus 7 with some great rumour coverage of future devices to be released. This site is new to the world (well, 2012, when the Nexus 7 was released) and is very much community based. Got some great news? Tip them off! (also, I love the colours used for this site).
9. Android Guys
Android Guys is a great website featuring up to date news on pretty much all things Android. As you would expect with a blog, content is added regularly and these ‘guys’ also have a great YouTube channel featuring a first look at some great products and apps.
I finish off this list with (yet again) The Verge listed on my 10 top websites to follow. Next week, I promise I won’t! Anyway, The Verge has amazing writing, incredible coverage and a great commenting community behind them. Tune in for great reviews!
