Have you heard? The fourth AnDevCon (Android Developer Conference) is happening on December 4-7 in the SF Bay area. And with more than 80 classes and workshops, this will be the biggest one yet. There will be sessions held by reps from some of the industry's leading companies, including Groupon, Intel, Facebook, and, of course, Google.
AnDevCon IV will offer one day of intensive workshops, followed by three days of technical classes. More than 1,500 software developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs from 40 nations are projected to attend and choose from 70+ classes to bring Android open source development to a high level.
For many people, cases and mounts are a part of life with a mobile device. The problem is, however, that many users aren't willing to sacrifice style for functionality. What if you could have both, though? Thanks to a new product from Rokform for the Galaxy S III, that's more possible than ever.
The Rokbed for the GSIII is Rokform's first endeavor outside the iOS world, and it looks like they hit it out of the part.

Do you like portable speakers? Do you like free things? Then have we got a mashup for you - because Android Police and Braven are giving away two of the awesome Braven 600 portable Bluetooth speakers. I loved the 600 when I reviewed it. It's solidly put together, and the sound it produces definitely belies its price tag.
Smartphones are the new portable gaming systems. And MP3 players, point & shoot cameras, calendars, on-the-go email machines, and social networking devices. Simply put, smartphones work hard for us. As a result, the battery drains quickly. Oftentimes too quickly.
That's why Seidio is offering up three 3,500mAh extended batteries and three desktop charging cradles for the Galaxy S III to three lucky readers.
As stated above, we have some battery/charging cradle combos to give away.
It's that time of year again - time for the annual Apps World in Europe (there's also an American event, but that's not until February 2013). And, just like last year, we've a couple of tickets to give away. Why? Because we're awesome and love to give away free stuff. That's why.
This giveaway is for the event only. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any other associated expenses.
So, the long awaited title from Phosphor Games Horn is now available in the Play Store. It's an epic tale of a young boy who awakes to find himself in a Pylon-laden world. It's his job to destroy the beasts and turn them back into their former (human) selves. And it's awesome. Don't take my word for it though - check out our full review right here.
Horn has also been optimized for Tegra 3 devices, which really brings the environments and characters to life.
About a month ago, I reviewed a unique backpack called Solid Gray. It isn't a typical backpack by any standards - it's a unique hardshell pack made of a solid piece of extremely durable polypropylene plastic. Its eye-catching, futuristic design makes it one of a kind, and the overall layout is well thought-out given the nature of the bag.
Now, it's your chance to grab this unique carry-all for absolutely nothing, because thanks to the awesome guys at Solid Gray, we have one to give away.
It seems like most books on developing for Android are geared towards beginners and those who are accustomed to developing for other platforms or using other languages, while fewer help you put that extra layer of polish and shine on your app. With hundreds of thousands of apps already on the market for you to compete with, that's exactly what you need: something to kick your app up a notch or two.
