    What's everyone's favorite Android related blog?

    I like Droid-life.com. They tend to get the latest scoops before the other guys. I also check out androidcentral.com. Quite honestly, as awesome as the forums are, phandroid.com is that not that good of a blog :eek:. Please don't hit me.

    You are using words "forum" and "blog" like they are the same thing....they are NOT.

    I look at several Android forums, but IMHO the forums here are top notch and one of the best places to get information and learn. Androidcentral cant even come close.

    I did mean blog. You misunderstand me. My second point was that since you can get here by clicking on Forum on Phandroid.com, this place falls under the umbrella of the Phandroid blog. What I found surprising was that given such an active and quality forum, the blog its associated with doesn't really measure up.

    @tberg, blogging takes a totally different mindset. It is closer to publishing and journalism. Forum, on the other hand, is online chatting. People are usually more comfortable to chat than to write article.

    I do a lot of blogging on the online professional community which is part of my obligation as a community leader and mentor. It usually takes me a day or two to write up a blog. Most people do not have such time or patience. Therefore, blogging usually is reserved to those who either has a great passion on the subject or the subject is his/her professional discipline.

    Tbert - I don't really follow any Android blogs. I do, however, follow two forums, this one, and IncredibleForum.

    yeah i also feel the same way. The forums here are amazing, but the blog doesn't necessarily have the best articles-- atleast as far as the amount of published articles and actual "news" is concerned. the quality of the blogs are pretty good though. But even though i still check this blog more than others.

    I also browse androidandme, androidcentral.com, and various other tech sites like engadget ect.
