Showcasing the same high quality content, the Android Edition features 360-degree, hands-on product photography, breaking news, interactive reviews and stunning image galleries.
Luke Peters, Editor of T3, says: “The Android market is flourishing, with millions of people now using Android devices and downloading apps. Our success on the iPad has cemented our position as the number one choice for tech fans and I anticipate Android users will embrace our new edition with a similar vigour.”
