With CES in full effect, it’s been an extremely busy couple of days for Android. In fact, I was so absorbed in CES news, I forgot to post yesterday’s Android roundup (I bet you thought it was going to go away). Good news is we’re still here, and for anyone interested in what has been going on in the world of Android, we encourage you to head over to Cult of Android. Here’s a recap of some of the news-making headlines today.

Samsung And Verizon Announce LTE Packing Galaxy Tab 7.7 [CES 2012]

Most of the devices announced by Verizon at CES have been updated models of devices already out, and this next one is no different.

Viewsonic announced today that they would be adding to the oversaturated Android tablet market with their own sub-$200 tablet. The Viewsonic ViewPad E70 sounds like a good deal at $170 and having Android’s latest Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, but once you check out the details, you might be singing a different tune.

Better Late Than Never: Gingerbread Finally Available For AT&T Samsung Captivate

Although Gingerbread has been available for over a year now, the Samsung Captivate hasn’t seen the update until today (who says Samsung doesn’t update their devices?). That’s right, while most people are wondering when Ice Cream Sandwich is going to be ready for their device, there are still some people out there just hoping for Gingerbread. Not an optimal update schedule for most, but I guess it’s better late than never, right? More…

Google Provides Indoor Maps Of Vegas Casinos, Convention Center, And More [CES 2012]

CES attendees will now have another helpful tool to guide them through the endless labyrinths of floors and exhibits found in the Las Vegas casinos and convention center.
