Here’s our weekly summary of the Android news we didn’t write about this week, along with a collection of the more interesting mainstream mentions picked up by Google’s Android OS over the last seven days.
The hardest part about this update is coming up with new ways to phrase that opening paragraph every week. Here’s the list.

Android-powered Archos 32 teased at J&R
Archos is about to go tablet mad. We’re still not convinced there’s any actual human demand for tablets, outside of the weird Apple universe.
That’ll do. The only other news we can see now is stuff about rubbish apps no one will actually use and e-books. The weather’s too nice to be sat here pretending to be interesting in e-books.
