In Oct. 2011, Google released Android 4.0 (“Ice Cream Sandwich”), the first version of Android that spanned smartphones and tablets. Now, the Android steward has revealed Android 5.0 (“Lollipop”), which expands beyond mobile devices to also run on smartwatches (Android Wear), TVs and set-tops (Android TV), and car computers (Android Auto). Google originally announced Android 5.0 as Android L back at Google I/O in June while also introducing the three specialized versions of Android listed above. With Lollipop, Google says, you can write for one of these platforms and easily port them to the others, while providing a consistent UI.

This contest is a little outside of what we normally run around here, and it’s probably against what should be a Mobile Nations company policy. But you know, since I’ve neglected to write that policy yet, and it’s a quiet Saturday, and we’re a big mobile loving community that helps each other out, and I’m personally going to give away some awesome prizes, I think it’ll be ok. At least this time.
So here’s the deal. My better half has been away at school all year taking her MBA. She’s coming into the home stretch, working on her big final thesis project which is focused on Premium French Fashion brands and the opportunities and challenges facing them in North America. She needs people to take a survey she put together. She asked if I could help the spread the word, so that’s what I’m doing (trust me… I owe her!).
She’s primarily looking to collect data from females in North America, but guy or girl and anywhere in the world, you’re welcome to take the survey (none of the data collected will be sold or made public of course – this is purely for academic reasons). And if fashion and shopping isn’t your thing, see if you can coerce your better half to take the survey. If you do, you both can win!!
