The Android Headlines Show podcast is ready for you. Are you ready? This week we had a bunch of news and hardware to talk about, and some pretty cool things happening with software and apps too. Orlando joined us for the first time this week. Flappy Bird was pulled from the Play Store by its developer because its addicting and people can't handle a little mobile game without sending death threats to the dev. Themer was pulled too but then it was put back. HTC is going to flood the market with cheap phones, they say. And the Galaxy S5 is leaking all over the internet. All over. Oh boy. We had a lot to talk about and it was a ton of fun!
Here is what we discussed on the show this week:
Witricity hopes to bring wireless charging to everyone with new partnerships
HTC plans to saturate the market with cheap phones
