Have you submitted your entry to The Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience yet?! If not, you better hurry, because the entry deadline is tomorrow at 11:59 PM EST.
Remember, if you're one of the lucky selections, you'll get to join NVIDIA and Mobile Nations crew at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Your airfare, hotel and CES pass will all be taken care of. Woohoo!
What are you waiting for!? Full details here...
We're headed back once again in beautiful Las Vegas for the 2014 International CES. (That's Consumer Electronics Show for you noobs.) It's an insane amount of all things tech, from phones, to TVs to cars to tablets to -- well, just about anything you can think of, and a number of things that defy logic.
The latest Android CES news
How best to keep up with the Android news? Start with our...
Bear with us, folks -- we're still coming to terms with this. Apple and iTunes have snubbed Android Central in its "Best of 2012" podcast listings. Instead, Apple, in its infinitely looped wisdom, has gone with some guy named Leo Laporte, a couple of people who apparently like to beat geeks, and a blue letter "e" for best technology podcasts of 2012. Hell, there's not even an Android category!...
The real work at Android Central is being done by the more than 1 million members in our forums. Here are a few must-read threads to kick off your weekend:

We're a week into of our a monthly contest in which we're giving away a $10 Google Play Gift Card every day this month. That's 31 winners in 31 days, with an easy $10 to spend on apps, books, music -- whatever you want!
What's more is that each of the 31 winners will automatically be entered to win a free Nexus 4, which we'll choose and announce the first week of January.
We're going to change...
Christmas. Chanukah. Kwanza. Festivus. No matter what you celebrate, December tends to be the month for giving. That goes for us, too, believe it or not. We might occasionally seem like Grinches on the outside, but come the end of the year we come down from Mount Crumpit and descend into Whoville with nothing but the best of intentions to spread Android joy and cheer amongst all the good little...

Heard any good Android stories lately? We've got a mountain to move tonight on Episode 116 of the Greatest Android Podcast in the World. We'll kick things off with the mess that's been the Google Play store and the launch of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. Then we'll pivot over to the new Verizon Droid DNA, and where it fits into our lives. (And whether the 5-inch display fits into our pockets.) Plus...
The LG Optimus G truly allows you to live without boundaries, bringing a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display the power o fthe Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. And it takes that and marries it to such innovative features as Video Zoom, QuickMemo and Q-Slide, making the LG Optimus G the ultimate device for anyone who seeks to bring speed to productivity, along with incredible performance, design and...
I've been camped out in our Verizon Droid DNA forums for the better part of the last two days, and the discussion is simply incredible. Here are a few threads you must be sure to check out:
I have a DROID DNA. You have questions. Fire away!

It's Election Day here in the U.S., which means the long national nightmare that is the democratic election process (still better than any other in the world) is nearly over, thank Zeus, and we can get back to what really matters -- bashing each other over which smartphone is better.
So let's have a little fun. We're all friends here. We're even going to turn comments off on this post, because...
OK, ladies and germs. You want specs, you got specs. Here we have the new LG Nexus 4 versus the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and (ha!) the BlackBerry 10. Full version's here if you get tired of squinting.
Sure, the LG Nexus 4 (or Optimus Nexus, or whatever) doesn't actually exist yet. Except, it does. And you guys are talking up a storm. Here's a quick look at some of the best threads we've spotted in our Rumored Devices forum:
LG Nexus 4 or wait for the Asus Padfone 2?
For some reason, not super excited on the new Nexus 4
Why the hate?
Rumor: No LTE? Why is that...
There was this little thing in San Diego, so the podcast is on hold. Don't worry -- we have a lot of Nexus rumors to chew through and we're planning on tackling them tomorrow with a special edition of sorts. You all will just have to settle for Biden and Ryan instead of AC's fab four tonight.
It's Friday, and we're trying to power our way through to the weekend. Chances are you are, too. Let's help with that. This morning we're giving away three Lloyd mugs. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. We'll close things down at 5 p.m. Eastern time, and notify the winners the weekend.
Free. Lloyd. Mug. (Coffee/Bailey's not included.) Good luck, everyone!
