Open invitation: We want to interview your Android insider at CES 2011

The 2011 International CES circus is just one week away and we are gearing up to send nearly the entire Android and Me family to Las Vegas to check it out and report on the latest Android news. We will have six people representing our site this time so we hope to bring you a lot of more coverage than last year. Be on the lookout for lots of hands-on reports, live blogs, and random Android gadgets like last year’s Android kitchen.

One of things I’m most excited about is our series of video interviews that we are planning with several insiders from the Android community. This will provide a closer look at several people behind the scenes from some of the biggest companies working on Android products. We already have interviews scheduled with NVIDIA, Samsung, Texas Instruments, and a few other surprises that we are still trying to confirm.

I know a lot of PR folks watch this site, so I thought we should throw out an open invitation to anyone reading this. If you can help us schedule an interview with an Android insider please fill out the contact form below. We will not be able to interview everyone, so please let us know why the person you have in mind would be a good candidate for a video interview.

Our calendar for Wednesday and Thursday is absolutely booked, but we have plenty of availability on Tuesday and Saturday. Most interviews should only take 15-20 minutes. We would be happy to come to you for the interview or we also have our NetShelter booth on the show floor that is available.

My inspiration for this project comes from Om Malik. Go check out his interview with Gowalla CEO Josh Williams for an idea of the type of format that we are aiming for.

    I can’t wait for CES next year!!

    It’s gonna be sooo pro.

    My hopes:

    Olympus, more AT&T dual-core phones and beastly Honeycomb tablets (hopefully AT&T or no monthly plan at all).

      Why the many downvotes?!

      Do you guys hate AT&T that much?

      I don’t really like them, but I’m stuck with them for now, and don’t mind them since I’ve been with them for a while.

    Great. Dont forget to tell us more about how afraid they are of the new, game-changing iPad 2 from world leader Apple and plz provide some upclose shots from the fear in their eyes.

    And ask Samsung about what epic fail events are planned for the next year and what features they will announce but never deliver so we can get ahead of schedule!

    cheers, Ben

      Well aslo be shure to inform you when steve jobs commits suicide because everyone realizes that android is better than iphone.

        Well, I doubt that the iPad2 will bring much more than a slightly new shell holding upgraded hardware and another camera (wait… that is what all new electronics bring!), Ben does make a point. Samsung has failed to release an upgrade for every Galaxy S device except for the international version. It would have just been better to just release one hardware and let each carrier choose the default apps.

      ahhhhhhhhhh that`s explains why jPhone (junkPhone) is an EPIC FAIL.. Samsung (which is another epic fail) made you processor … lol

    I would like to hear you ask why no company has tried to out source their updating to a third party. They can barely keep up with the updating their phones while making new ones. I am sure that some genius developer out there would love to be paid to do what they already play with on XDA. THAT COMPANY WOULD MAKE A KILLING on contracts with companies upgrading their phones with the latest version of Android. Too bad I am not a genius developer.
