After a brief stint over at GameFans.com providing for E3 coverage last week, I’m officially back and covering the late shift here at Phandroid. You know what that means? Well, besides my poor jokes and occasional butchering of the English language — the Android Overload is back! This is the place where we place all the news stories from throughout our day (the ones that didn’t make it onto our front page), but we still felt deserved a look over. So, feel free to catch up on everything you almost missed out on. Enjoy.
