The Oppo N1 isn't a phone you'd expect to see sold in markets like the United States. It's eccentric and, frankly, kind of weird. A rear touchpad panel? A swiveling camera? A 5.9" display? Official CyanogenMod support from the factory? It has "niche" written all over it (not literally, but that would be kind of funny, I suppose). As such, the N1's appeal in western markets is likely to be limited to the enthusiast audience, an audience Android Police has long entertained.

Welcome to yet another episode of the Android Police Podcast. We're here today with a special sort of podcast (you might have noticed the lack of a live broadcast on Thursday), celebrating the season the only way we know how: a series of silly, stupid, and weird sound bites from episodes over the last year.

Standards you've come to know and love, like "I've always wanted to know if I could kick my own ass," and "It's Thursday." And who could forget timeless classics like "I might have pants on," or "I do not have a frog in my butt"?

After a brief (read: 1-day) hiatus, popular ROM management app ROM Manager has returned to the Play Store. It was originally removed for violation of Google Play's Developer Program Policies, specifically the subsection regarding in-app purchases. Koush, the developer of ROM Manager, had long included a PayPal upgrade option inside of the app, a feature which doesn't jive with Google's policy that apps on the Play Store must use the Play Store billing service exclusively for in-app sales.

It's officially official: the Oppo N1 is the first Google-approved CyanogenMod phone. After passing through Google's CTS (compatibility test suite), CDD (compatibility definition document), and CTS Verifier, the phone can legitimately run Google's suite of apps and have access to the Google Play Store. It is an undeniably big milestone for Cyanogen Inc., who hope to release a true "CyanogenMod" phone at some point, with the "highest quality hardware available" through a partnership with an as-yet unannounced firm.

While the Moto G launched just earlier this month with Android 4.3, Motorola isn't wasting any time keeping the device's OS up to date - they've just announced an Android 4.4.2 OTA for the company's super cheap entry-level handset, mere weeks after the phone itself was unveiled. Here are the changes Motorola's touting as part of the update:

Android 4.4.2, KitKat, is the latest release of the Android platform. KitKat includes enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security, smarter power use, and more tools and capabilities for better app development.

Google removed the extremely popular app ROM Manager from the Play Store today for violation of the Google Play Developer Program Policies, specifically the subsection regarding in-app purchases, which requires developers to use Google's in-app billing system.

Koush, the developer of ROM Manager, had until now offered as an option (alongside the Google IAP system) upgrades to ROM Manager Premium from inside the free ROM Manager app using PayPal (or as a license on the Play Store), which pretty blatantly violates the policy in question.

Earlier this week, Google rather unexpectedly announced two brand-new Google Play Experience devices (for the US only, of course) - the LG G Pad 8.3 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The G Pad 8.3 will set you back $350, while the Z Ultra is $650, though both devices rather undeniably fill niches in the Google device ecosystem. The G Pad acts as a mid-size tablet, a la iPad Mini, something a lot of enthusiasts have been asking Google to build for years now.
