Having been an iPhone user since 2007, Android always left me feeling a bit cold, mainly due to the lack of polish in Android apps. That’s changed somewhat over the years, with Google starting to take big steps to surpass its mobile rival.
When Google finally confirmed the Nexus 5, I immediately decided to buy it. It’s my first Android device since the Galaxy SIII — a device that worked well but was a total nightmare to hold. I received my new Nexus yesterday and have spent a day customizing and getting to grips with Google’s new Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.
I just realised I didn’t update people on where I went after I left The Verge — let me rectify that.
I’m proud to share that I am now Associate European Editor at Engadget, working to build UK content and bring more relevant news, reports and features to the site. It’s a pretty awesome team and I’m already enjoying sitting around the Engadget table. There’s a lot coming, I’m excited to share it with you all.
Monday was my last official day at The Verge after six months and over 300 posts. While I am (and have been) spending some quality time with my family — as we cling on the the last of an unexpectedly decent British summer — I’m very eager to share news of my next steps, but must keep that excitement on hold for now.
I can be contacted via my personal email address until that time.
There’s a hole in my face.
[Funny thing was when I washed my mouth out, water came squirting out my cheek.]
