Acquisition increases PhoneDog Media network readership and reinforces company’s position as a leader in online publishing
PhoneDog Media is pleased to announce the acquisition of Android and Me, a popular and influential Android publication in the mobile technology space. Launched in 2008, Android and Me receives more than two million pageviews per month and boasts over 148,000 Twitter followers. The addition of Android and Me to the PhoneDog Media network grows total readership to more than 10 million per month.
David Beren, Director of Network Content, will lead Android and Me as part of PhoneDog Media’s expanding network group. In addition to Android and Me’s current staff, writers will be transitioned from DroidDog, PhoneDog’s outgoing Android publication. The combined editorial staff will continue to offer unique content, increased social media engagement, and expanded video content.
As part of PhoneDog’s Media portfolio of online publications, Android and Me will utilize PhoneDog’s established brand awareness and editor influence to reach untapped Android markets. Under PhoneDog Media’s guidance, Android and Me will continue to evolve through a design and user experience that will align with the PhoneDog Media vision.
The acquisition of Android and Me strengthens PhoneDog Media, a network that leverages the voice and influence of Aaron Baker, David Beren, and Cam Bunton. Current publications include PhoneDog.com, T-Mobile-focused TmoNews.com, and Apple-focused TodaysiPhone.com. “We are proud to welcome Android and Me to the PhoneDog family of mobile technology websites,” said Tom Klein, CEO of PhoneDog Media. “Taylor and his team from Android and Me have done a beautiful job in establishing one of the most visually pleasing publications in the technology space, all while providing its large fan base with outstanding coverage of all things Android.”
As PhoneDog continues on its path to become the undisputed home of passionate technology enthusiasts worldwide, the company will continue to build and acquire online publications that provide both a unique point-of-view and an engaged community.
