For the first time in months, the entire gang gets together to form the Android Podcast Voltron. Topics this week include LG's Optimus G and the problem(s) it might face in the United States, HTC's lack of an Android announcement, and the reason we don't yet have a Droid Incredible X.
Additional subjects on the agenda include the impact that Windows Phone 8 will have on Android and whether HTC needs Microsoft more than the other way around. We also talk about the Kindle Fire HD, how it fits in the 2012 tablet game, and whether we'd tell mom to buy one.
Of course, we also dig in a bit on the iPhone 5 and how it matters to Android in the short and long terms. Finally, we discuss the Galaxy Note II and its potential successes here in the United States.
The final segment, as always, is dedicated to highlighting new and notable apps we like.
