Android Overload: Borderlands 2 running on NVIDIA Project SHIELD, HTC’s new infographic teases new camera experience, and more

The Android Overload is where we feature the biggest news stories from throughout the day (see above video), as well as stash all of the stories/articles/news bits that didn’t make it onto our front page. But just because they weren’t featured doesn’t mean they aren’t worth taking a look at. In fact, there’s almost always a little something here for everyone. So, take a look around and let us know if you find anything of interest.

    “Google Trends shows Galaxy brand trumps Android in terms of consumer awareness.”
    I bet there are plenty of hot heads at Samsung thinking they could dump Android at this point. Hey, here’s a good buyer for Blackberry.

    No biggie, but the “New slimmed down Raspberry Pi model hits Europe with $25 price tag” story is missing a corresponding link.
