To help aspiring Android developers get off the ground and develop our next dream app, Android Police has partnered with O'Reilly Media, one of the largest technical book publishers, to give away a multitude of Android books to our readers. Each week or so for the next few months, we'll be giving away a different O'Reilly Android book, asking for nothing but a minute of your time in return.
The first book in the list is Learning Android by Marko Gargenta, released by O'Reilly in March 2011. Read More
Looks like at least one company got the MeMO (pun intended) on tablet pricing - ASUS just announced that the Eee Pad Transformer will start at a mere $399. Now, that'll buy you a 16GB model; if you want to step the gigabyte count up to 32, you'll have to shell out an additional $100, raising the price to $499. Still, even when you take into account the fact that the $149 keyboard dock isn't included, that's not a bad deal at all - in fact, both prices shave a benjamin off what Apple will charge for an equivalent iPad 2.

It's a brand new week, and the staff here at Android Police has something to be excited about - we're less than 100 tweeps away from 10,000 amazing and supportive followers! You guys lighten up our days and nights with your comments, so we decided to give some back, in the form of a quick contest.
To help push through - no, blast through - 10,000 followers, we have acquired a $50 gift certificate to Zazzle.com, one of the top apparel (t-shirts, etc) sites on the Internet, and we are itching to give it out to one of our most loyal Twitter followers. Read More
About a month and a half ago, we announced our biggest contest yet - your creativity expressed as an official Android Police t-shirt design in exchange for an Android phone, courtesy of Samsung.
The contest went on for about 3 weeks and the results exceeded my wildest expectations. Countless submissions later, many sleepless nights of doing final edits, emailing back and forth with the authors, and organizing the apparel store, I had narrowed down the submissions to... Read More

We'll keep this short and sweet - Android Police needs an official shirt design. However, none of us are of the artistic caliber necessary for such an endeavor (if you need any proof of that, check out the t-shirt I was sporting at Google I/O this year. Ironed on, baby!). This is where you, the super-talented-Photoshop/Illustrator-wizard, come in. Read More
The mobile industry is a very competitive, complicated, fast changing world. The name of the game, though, is simple: get your product out there, get people using it, and do it fast. Quantcast, a company that specializes in the world of internet usage trends, recently released some information showing how well the players in the mobile OS and software game are doing. The information is intriguing, to say the least. Read More
