Namaste!

Welcome to TheAndroidSoul.com, a dedicated droid-blog that originates from the deserts of Rajasthan, India.

Well, we are a bunch of avid Android lovers from India, with an aim to provide you news on Android updates, phones and tablets, and occasional round-up pieces on Apps and Games.

As an Indian, we can totally relate to Android, which is a mix of vast majority of OEMs and carriers joining hands together, just like our own country is made up of so many religions and cultures, coming together to become the largest democracy in the world.

Android, for us, is life! Well, not just because we love it too much, but also because we think of Android as a route which introduced the Indian masses to real smartphone tech in a way only Google-backed OS could do.

Why? Well, when buying power isn’t your country’s strongest suit, you simply can’t rely on a certain firm from Cupertino to reach out to masses with required product differentiation, especially when they pray this philosophy: One phone, one carrier and one man in-charge. Some reference here is deserving. Vic Gundotra from 2010 I/O: “If Google didn’t act, it faced a draconian future where one man, one phone, one carrier were our choice. That’s a future we don’t want.”

We have been in the business for a long time now, having started back in June, 2010. Even though we have had our ups and downs, we feel fairly privileged to earn our bread writing Android stories day-in day-out. Gladly enough, we have been covered by many, many awesome tech publications out there — TheVerge, GSMarena, Phonearena, Gizmodo, AndroidPolice, VentureBeat, SearchEngineLand, etc. to name some.

We try our best to provide Indian Android fans an opportunity to write on their beloved OS by letting them work with us, as we believe Indians can contribute much better on Tech to the world than they currently do.

    is xperia arc is the best upcoming phone for android user

    • Specs-wise Galaxy S II is unbeatable. But if greater Looks is what you want, nothing bests the Xperia Arc. BTW, the earthquake in Japan means Arc could be delayed due to disruption there. And, No definite word available right now on pricing and release date.

      I think you’re gonna purchase Arc anyway, as and when it launches, right?
