PhoneDog Media acquires Android and Me, a change of hands and new beginnings


Good Monday morning Android and Me readers! There are some changes afoot today, and we’re pleased to announce that AAM has been acquired by the PhoneDog Media brand. Alongside PhoneDog.com, TmoNews.com and TodaysiPhone.com, Android and Me will continue to excel in its Android coverage.

You can expect to see some changes here and there; but for the most part, everything you know and love about AAM will stay the same. We’re not interested in breaking something that’s not broken, but a change in leadership will naturally lead to a few changes. For one, expect to see some fresh new faces around these parts! And, a larger staff will bring an increase in the amount of daily Android news. You can expect more reviews, more videos, more contests, more app coverage–more of everything.

The press release below details what the change of hands entails. We’d love your reaction. What would you like to see more of? Less of? What would you change? What needs to stay the same? Perhaps a Google+ hangout is in order to help you all get to know me and the team from DroidDog.com? As my TmoNews.com readers will attest, I’m completely dedicated to the success of this property and I know the current AAM staff is excited about the future.

I hope you’ll join us on this new adventure and in giving a fond farewell to both Taylor and Clark Wimberly ,who put together a fantastic site with an awesome design and fantastic readership. We wish them the very best in their new beginnings.
