Top 10: Android News Stories – May 15th, 2016


Although this week is sure to be exciting and filled with plenty of tech revolving around Android thanks to the Google I/O conference, this past week has had some interesting information pop up as well. Another rumor has surfaced that states Google's Android VR headset will be making a debut this week at the annual developer conferenceĀ and that it would be the standalone headset that has been talked about in the past.
