It is with great pleasure that PhoneDog Media announces the acquisition of Android and Me, a premiere Android news publications.
Launched in 2008, Android and Me has established itself as one of the go-to news publications for breaking Android news, reviews and hands-on. The site currently boasts more than two million pageviews per month and a Twitter account of more than 148,000 followers. The combination of PhoneDog Media and the Android and Me brand goes hand in hand with a similar vision and approach toward the wireless news market. The deal brings together two strong and well-known properties and overnight increases PhoneDog Media's reach into the Android news market.
With the announcement comes the closure of PhoneDog Media's existing Android property, DroidDog.com which will be folded into Android and Me in the future.
