AotA 56: Life is Good


“No literally, when the ground shakes the sheep start to run around like crazy.”

Yep that’s right, you guessed it. Another episode of Attack of the Androids. Mat Lee here on this episode joined by Eric Finkenbiner, Joey Kelley, and Shane Brady. Join us as we talk about a list of top five Android phones coming soon, the Asus PadFone 2, the Archos GamePad, Beyondpod VS DoggCatcher, 32GB Nexus 7 for under $250, CM 10 on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, a new Google Play scanner, The Internet Crime Complaint Center, the Gmail 4.2 leak, and of course this week’s app picks. Thanks for listening!

Here’s a list of the top five Android phones you can expect before the end of the year. LG has two phones on this list. Who’s eating words now?

Is anyone excited about the Asus PadFone 2? This looks like a pretty cool device. Would you rather carry around one device or two? Here’s a link to the video.

Android Authority has a cool hands on demo of the new Archos GamePad. I’m kind of digging these when they get the price right, although I’d rather have a controller I can slide the Prime into.

Do you use BeyondPod or DoggCatcher? That’s just how we roll, answering questions live on the fly.

Cult of Android has a leak from Staples about a 32GB Nexus 7 for under $250. I want.

I tried MIUI on the Galaxy Nexus, not impressed. So, I wiped everything and went to the October M release of CyanogenMod 10. It’s very nice. Backing up is for girls. What do you think, nightlies or M?

Phandroid has an article about a new baked in Google Play scanner designed to help take care of malware.

In other security news, Eric will now read from the FBI National White Collar Crime Center release about Android malware. Listen up lol. Here is the press release.

Who wants to play with Gmail 4.2? Droid Life has a link to the APK. There is also a cool article on Android Authority about some of the features.
