Android Magazine Hits UK News Stands July 28, U.S. in “Few Weeks”

A new magazine dedicated to your favorite mobile operating system is set to hit news stands in the UK starting tomorrow, July 28th. Imagine Publishing is launching an old-school print magazine called Android Magazine specifically aimed at users of Android smart phones and tablets.  Although the magazine will be published monthly, we like the fact that much of the content doesn’t hinge upon time sensitivity.  Readers will enjoy extensive reviews, tutorials, tips, and recommendations.  Hacking and modding types will be happy to know that there’s also a section devoted specifically to modifying your device.

According to Imagine Publishing, Android Magazine will be available at WHSmith, Tesco, Sainsburys, Barnes & Noble and all good newsagents. Those of you living in the United States can look forward to getting your hands on a copy in just a few weeks.  In the meanwhile, be sure to follow along at Little Green Robot on Facebook and Twitter or order a copy from Imagine’s website.
