[Weekend Poll] Cyanogen Inc's New Logo: Hot Or Not?

This weekend's poll's an easy one - Cyanogen Inc's got a new logo, and you'll see it just below.

It's a decidedly more industrial, formal look than their old logo, which features the now-basically-defunct mascot Cid. It also doesn't exactly look like a software company's logo to me - more like a biohazard waste disposal consortium. It just doesn't seem like a good fit. Then again, it's just a logo, and it's a pretty opinion-based discussion, so, let's get subjective - vote in the poll below and let us know what you think of the new branding.

[Weekend Poll] Are QWERTY Slider Smartphones Finally Dead?

With no DROID 5 in sight for an unveiling at next week's Verizon festivities, it seems the writing is on the wall for the form-factor that basically got Android off the ground: the QWERTY slider phone.

It's been nearly 4 years since the original DROID and HTC G1 debuted, two phones that really carried the Android platform in those early, uncertain days. It seemed, perhaps, that the trend the Sidekick (aka Hiptop) started in 2002 might continue on into the true smartphone era, side-by-side with the increasingly popular touchscreen slab (which at that point really just meant the iPhone).

[Poll] Who Is Your Favorite Android Police Writer?

I still can't believe that Android Police has been around for three years now (we've just celebrated our third anniversary last week). It's been hell of a roller coaster of leaks, emotions, interesting news, editorials, contests, and... writers. You may not realize this, but in the past years, we've been through probably over 60 contributors, the strongest 11 of whom now comprise the core team.

But today is not the time for sob stories.

[Weekend Poll And CES News Roundup] Which Android Device Came Out On Top At CES?

CES is done and over, and while Android announcements were a little sparse this particular year, we didn't come away empty-handed. Sony unveiled its new flagship phones, NVIDIA dropped a bomb on everyone with Shield, and Huawei even made it to the front pages with its massive 6.1" phablet. Who do you think ended up rising above the noise, though? What Android product are you going to be watching most closely now that it's official?

[The Weekend Poll] Who's Going To Make The Biggest Splash At This Year's CES?

With CES just days away, we're about to head into a dense week of tech product news. New devices across the board - phones, tablets, accessories, TV's, speakers, cameras, and more. A large chunk of those product announcements will probably, at least in some roundabout way, be relevant to Android.

But it's the phones and tablets I think that we're all most excited for, and that will probably make the biggest bang during this year's show overall.

[The Weekend Poll And News Roundup] What Twitter App Are You Using?

Welcome to the Android Police Weekend Poll and News Roundup. For last week's poll and roundup, see Do You Put Your Phone In A Case, Skin, Bumper, Or Go Bare? For this week's podcast, Episode 40, head here.

If you're looking for a Twitter client on Android, you won't be pressed for a lack of choices (just look at the poll options below). But what you may be pressed for is equivalent functionality, speed, and features across those various options.

[Weekend Poll] What Type Of Browser Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Type Of Keyboard Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

Much like keyboards (which we covered last week), browsers are a dime a dozen. Google ships one browser with Android (in more recent versions, that's been Chrome), which most manufacturers then replace with their own proprietary version. And then there are the dozens (if not hundreds) of third-party browsers available on the Play Store.

[Weekend Poll] What Type Of Keyboard Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will/Do You Use The Multi-User Support In Android 4.2?

There's an absolute plethora of keyboard options available for Android devices - in today's poll, phones in particular. You can use the Android (AOSP) keyboard, the stock manufacturer keyboard that ships on your phone, or one of the hundreds of third-party options available in the Play Store. And if you go third-party, there are all different styles, from quirky options like 8Pen, to trace-based keyboards like Swype, and traditional predictive tap-based choices such as SwiftKey.

[Weekend Poll] Will You Use The Google Wallet Physical Card?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Prefer The Classic 10" Tablet Layout, Or The New Hybrid UI?

As we know by now, Google Wallet has been facing a lot of resistance. Major US carriers are blocking it while competition is getting intense. Google's fighting back, though, and word has it that new partnerships may be in the works. More importantly, Google is primed to  introduce a physical Google Wallet card.
