Android Central Podcast
The Android podcast for everyone. A weekly show about Android, Google, and the best of mobile technology.

We're sneaking in one final podcast before the end of the year, and before we head to Las Vegas for CES. That means it's time to announce your Readers' Choice awards for 2015 — the best of the best as decided by you fine folks! 

(Oh, and we just might talk Star Wars a little bit.)

Thanks for a great 2015, everyone. See ya'll in the new year.

And thanks to this week's sponsor:

We've got the curious Pixel C tablet in our hot little hands, and it's time to climb all over this not-so-little wonder. Plus the guys get grilled on their top picks of 2015, and we answer more of your questions live on air.

Our first Android History Project podcast (you can listen to it here) was such a hit, we decided to do another. And instead of listening to us gab for an hour we wrangled three top Android developers and have the honor of hearing their history of Android.

Huge thanks to Koushik Dutta (Vysor, ClockworkMod), Chris Lacy (Action Launcher) and Joe Braidwood (SwiftKey) for taking a few minutes out of their day to chat with us.
