Find out all about this plus our app picks on this week’s episode of Attack of the Androids. Thanks for listening.

Shane discusses the Apple announcement, focused on the iPad Mini, and the new iMac. Yes, we know this isn’t really Android. Deal with it. Here’s an article from Cnet about it.

Some confirmed specs on the upcoming LG Nexus device, and some other rumors about what we might see at the Google Android event on October 29th.

How do you keep your smartphone powered all day? How many hours do you actually get? Leave us a comment!

Verizon has dropped the price to $49 for a Galaxy Nexus. This is a great price for this phone, unless you would rather wait to get the new one.

Here’s a little something for fun. Shit Android Fanatics Say. How many of these have you heard us say on the show?

Do apps make you smoke? Here’s a weird quirky story that states perhaps apps promote smoking. What is the world coming to… Oh wait, have you ever heard of parents?

Researchers once again say they have found a bunch of apps on the Google Play Store that leak personal data under certain circumstances. Can you say Man in the Middle?

Seth hops in for the rest of the episode to share his thoughts on the LG Nexus, the iPad Mini, and what’s coming out soon to get excited about. Don’t get your hopes up.

If you don’t have a large bezel, how the heck do you hold your device. Most of us have thumbs, and we need somewhere to put them.
