Android Central Podcast
The Android Central Podcast, brought to you by AndroidCentral.com.

We're coming at you live this week — and, yes, earlier than usual — from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain! We're fresh off the announcements (and some serious hands-on time) with the all-new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, the HTC One M9, and more! Join us!

Android Auto and Apple's CarPlay are going to be game-changers for many of us. But that doesn't mean we don't still have questions. So we brought in analyst (and engineer and former PR rep for a major manufacturer) Sam Abuelsamid for a fascinating discussion about what's going to change for us in the cockpit. Of our 2005 Honda Civic.

You can find more on the auto industry from Sam at Navigant Research, on Google+ and at his personal blog.

And in the second part of this two-parter, Phil has some hard questions for iMore.com's Rene Ritchie as the Apple Watch gets closer to its debut, and epsecially as we've started to get more and better looking options from Android Wear.

We're back with our last live recording before we head off to Mobile World Congress. On tap: We'll see if this Lenovo "Superfish" means anything for us on Android. We'll get Alex's initial thoughts on the LG G Flex 2. And we'll definitely preview what to expect from MWC in just one more short week.

And someone sings some Chris Isaak.

Come in from the cold and spend an hour with us as we wrap up the week that was in Android, including more Samsung devices getting Lollipop (for better or worse, judging by our inbox), Xiaomi's San Francisco meetup, Google "only" selling 750,000 Android Wear devices in the first six months, and we answer more of your questions live.

This is the one in which Phil accidentally invites the entire world to be on the podcast. We also talk about the Amazon Echo, all the Android 5.0 Lollipop updates we're finally starting to see, and we answer a bunch of your questions live. You're not going to want to miss this one.

This week we discuss what it does (and especially what it  doesn't mean) for Microsoft to have invested in Cyanogen, more folks have gotten Android 5.0 Lollipop on the HTC One M8, we've got new pictures of what the upcoming M9 might look like, we've got a Samsung Tizen phone in house, we wrap up our Nest series and launch into Android antivirus stuff — and we answer more of your questions live, without a net.

We're coming at you this like live from the Mobile Nations/GeekBeat/Purch stage in South Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Which we mentioned because that's why it's crazy and loud and awesome and really just a heck of a lot of fun this week.

We wrap up the best of what we've seen here at CES 2015, brining along Phil, Alex, Andrew, Myriam Joire and Russell Holly.

We've arrived at our first show of a new year. So it's a good time to take a quick look back at the best of 2014 — and what we really think is important might surprise you — and look ahead to 2015, including CES in Las Vegas.
