Greetings, Phandroids. We’re officially wrapping up our work day here at the Phandroid offices, but before we leave you, we thought we’d give you a few more late night treats to have you snacking through the night. Because so many Android-related articles come past our desks, it’s impossible to feature them all on our front page. Thankfully, we’ve created the Android Overload for you guys to keep up-to-date with all the Android happenings around the world. So dig in and if you find an interesting article/s, leave your thoughts below. Night, guys.
