We Made the NY Times!

Many of you Android enthusiasts might already be aware of this.  If you subscribe to the same bookmarks and RSS feeds, you probably saw that last Friday your favorite Android blog made the New York Times!  The article is called “Do AndroidGuys Dream of Google Phones” and tells a brief story on who we are and what we do.

We were contacted by Laura Holson earlier in the week, looking to ask questions about our site.  Generally, when we speak to media or other sites, we start out with the “How did you start the site” and “What was your motivation behind the site” questions.  After a few minutes of taking these questions, we realized that she was not reaching out to us to talk about Android.  Rather, she was doing a piece on AndroidGuys.com instead!

It was not easy to keep that quiet and not let you guys know.  We couldn’t wait to tell everybody out there!  Let’s say that we have a couple of proud wives and moms over here in Canton, Ohio right now.

If you guys aren’t familiar with Laura Holson, she does a fantastic job covering the tech industry, mobile news, and all the other good stuff in between.  I recommend subscribing to her posts as there’s a lot that might be of interest to you.

Thanks to all of the emails and IM’s over the weekend!  Without you dedicated followers, we’d never make it to mainstream sites like the NY Times.


  1. Congratulations guys! I track a lot of sites with Android news from Hungary but yours is my favorite, no question about it. You are fast, accurate and the in-depth articles (like “Chrome and Android Have Google’s Head in the Clouds” ) are excellent!

    Congrats again, keep up the good work!

  2. I’ve already congratulated you on nytimes page yesterday… but don’t know why they have not posted my comment yet…. :(

  3. Grats but don’t do this to me.
    When i see a new story my heart starts beating faster hoping for something on the Dream or someone other Android phone

  4. I think we need to add a forum segment to this site.
    One section for technical discustions like Building droids
    then one section on porting android to existing phones
    then one section as a thinktank for cooporating on killer app designs.

    I do realize there are other sites out there like anddev.com, but this site has so much more insight for novices than most other dev sites. Just hoping for more stuff to check up on, for androidguys.com

  5. CONGRATULATIONS, YOU GUYS !!! yup!, i found you on my blog’s rss feed for nytimes !!!
    i really like your site, so i blog rolled it on my blog!


    thanks for quality content and the bold new site/world you’ve created!

  6. What happened to your main site (.com)… not getting anything right since yesterday… When will it be up & running?

    You guys got all fancy on us and now i can’t load the site anymore.
    Don’t go all Hollywood on us.

  8. We’re going to be doing an overhaul over the next 24 hours. It’s not your browser or your PC. The “OLD” way was running into trouble with our host. The site was not displaying properly. I know this one looks broken right now, but trust us, it’s better than the alternative. We’ll get you back to the AG you love very soon.

    When switching servers, we wanted to bring in a new design that we’d ben working towards for a while. Unfortunately, we had to make the jump sooner than we wanted to. Please bear with us!
