This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Regularly Rent Moves Through Google Play?

Jelly Bean isn't a huge evolution of Android like previous updates have been, but that's understandable given just how polished the OS has become. Still, as the company showed us on day 1 of I/O, things certainly have moved forward in quite a few ways (Ron provided a deeper look at some of them in his first Getting To Know Android 4.1 post).

With the introduction of the Nexus Q and Nexus 7 devices at Google I/O yesterday, one (big) question remains – how will the market react to these products?

The Nexus Q, a social media streaming device is undoubtedly a cool gadget – it allows you and your friends to stream content in your living room by interacting with one centralized device – the Q makes putting your Play Store content on your TV or external speakers an absolute breeze.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Regularly Purchase Tracks/Albums Using Google Play Music?

Last week, we asked you whether you ever regularly purchased from Google Play Music. Only 10% of you purchase all of their music through the Play Store, and 58% have made any purchases at all.

This week, we're moving on to movies. Do you regularly rent movies from Google Play?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Which Would You Buy Today, The Samsung Galaxy S III Or The HTC One X?

Google launched the Play Store in March in an attempt to consolidate the Books, Movies, Music, and Apps under one umbrella. Obviously the Apps section sees a ton of action, but we're not so sure that the other three have really found any traction.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Is A Carrier Move To Data-Only Service A Win Or Loss For Consumers?

Just a few weeks ago, we asked you what phone you would buy if you had to choose one today - the HTC One X, or the Samsung Galaxy S III. Surprisingly, people were pretty closely split, with the tally as of writing 56% SGSIII, 44% HOX.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Google + Motorola: A Match Made In Heaven, Or A Disaster Waiting To Happen?

A few days ago, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson revealed that the cellular industry would be moving towards data-only plans in the next few years, rather than the separated voice, message, and data system that is used today. Under the new system, voice and messages would be billed as data.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Voice Control Apps: Future Or Fad?

A few days ago, David argued that Google's now-approved purchase of Motorola will change the Android game. Hell, that much should really be pretty obvious - they now have access to virtually every piece of the smartphone puzzle in their hands. At first thought, that seems like a good idea for reasons that are probably obvious to most people reading an Android blog: a more pure Android experience.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Follow Up: Is Gaming On Android Lackluster?

Though voice control apps have been around for quite some time, it took Apple's release of Siri to bring the functionality to the mainstream. Now, competing manufacturers are trying to push out similar services. Samsung's first to the punch with a Vlingo-based "S Voice" service, though it remains to be seen how well it works.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Have You Switched Your Primary Cloud Storage Service To Google Drive?

The HTC One X landed in Europe in early April and was released today on AT&T, and as such, earned the distinction of first of the next-gen hardware. But being first isn't always the best - on Thursday, Samsung revealed their new flagship, the Galaxy S III.

It's finally here. You've seen it, gawked at it, drooled over it, and quite possibly done unspeakable things in your desire to have it. So, what do you think of the Galaxy S III - as good as promised, or "meh"-fest?

If you need some numbers to decide your vote, here are a few specifications to look over:

  • 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD Display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32GB storage, 64GB version "available soon"
  • microSD Card slot
  • Eye Tracking
  • Smart stay: keeps the screen awake while you're looking at the display
  • S-Voice: advanced voice recognition, "like a good friend who listens attentively" -- definitely a strong competitor to Siri
  • Floating videos: lets you resize videos and move them around on the display whilst they float atop other windows.
