For Your Consideration - The First Ever ANA Nominees

awards_logo_001The Android Network Awards (ANA’s) are just about ready to be turned over to the public for voting.  It looks like Monday might be the date we start running the polls on our sites and the main Android Awards page. 

Before we get to the nominations, I’d like to thank all of the help we’re getting from the various Android-based websites from around the world.  We’ve grown to over 60 members in the very short life of the network.  With representation from many different countries, I am proud to be working with you all.

With that out of the way, here’s what you came for.  Keep in mind, we reserve the right to make some last minute changes before the polls open up.  These are subject to change!
