Android is the number one operating system in the world today, and they aren't paying the advertising dollars like Apple does.

For me, not a lot of Android news.

Even if I go elsewhere. So maybe there's just not a lot to report. Also, if folk that write news are iPhone carriers then they tend to pick out every little news bit.

HOWEVER there has been a lot of iOS news. Unlike Android when they patch and issue iOS your device (caveat here) can get the update whereas Android machines and devices, the majority of them lag on updates with so many never getting an update.

So Apple news just happens more often.

If you just need Android news, hit the web about XDA, Android Police and such.

Android has always been silent. Phone manufacturers would rather spend their advertising dollars on skits that would boast their phone's new features instead of the OS itself.

Also, I think it has something to do with Apple's reputation. I mean, come on, one of the biggest phone manufacturers unveils its latest product and you're not going to write a review about it? You'll be wasting thousands of potential blog audience.
