Howdy, folks! I play a ton of video games, so expect plenty reviews along that vein. Just a bit of background... I've written a lot about BlackBerry, and for the last four months or so, I've been writing on iMore. Before Mobile Nations, I had done plenty of Android device reviews elsewhere on the web, so I'm certainly no stranger to the platform. I've been blogging full-time for about 5 years at this point. Oh, and I'm really tall. 

Like Phil said, drop me a line if you've got any suggestions.

Welcome Simon,

I'm curious, what Android devices do you own? Do you own an Android tablet or phones running 3.0+? Our development team focuses on apps for tablets (or phones with ICS) and it would be great to know if you're able to review these types of apps.

Good luck!

I've had to ship back the Android devices that I've reviewed, but I've got a personal Galaxy Nexus (running stock 4.0.3), and will be getting a Nexus 7 sooner than later. 

I thought that was you. Welcome to the green side! ;-) Looking forward to more app reviews.

Rene is the next one to make the jump. He can't deny it for too much longer.

I've encircled you ...

I play games a fair amount on my phone, but I usually stick with a small collection of games I know and play them over and over. I'd be interested to see more game reviews/opinions on what is available.

Welcome Simon!! It's always nice to have someone familiar with other platforms come and offer their perspective!!

Welcome Simon! I always enjoy reading your articles on iMore. I especially liked how you always turn the conversation over to the reader. I'll be keeping an eye out for those reviews. Especially now that my son & oldest daughter are doing the smartphone gaming thing.

I think you'll also find we're a friendly bunch around here. The readers did give you a hard time over at iMore all too frequently. We'll keep it civil here. Congrats to you sir.

I'm already blown away by the warm reception, to be honest. I usually don't bother with these kinds of intro posts because I assume readers care more about what I have to post than who I am or where I come from, but it's nice to be wrong in this case. :)

There was a lot to write about blackberry? Lol, welcome. Looking forward to reading your reviews.

Your articles, tips and apps help me to max out my Curve 8310! That's right, the 8310, 3G AND GPS, in the same device! it was unprecedented. LOL!

Ever consider having an "app of the week" theme along the lines of "the book of the month?" Would be nice to see discussions of the opinions of the people that use the app and "golden nuggets" found within the app. Just a thought. Maybe have the app announced on the blog and a dedicated forum for the discussions.

Actually, we're supposed ​to link to forum discussions about app reviews precisely for those kinds of discussions. Thanks for the reminder, I'll be sure to start doing that next week.

What an inviting introduction, Simon. I look forward to reading your articles and I may even make some requests along the way. Welcome, and I hope you enjoy the AC community!

Welcome to Android Central Simon! I always enjoy reading your articles on iMore (I do check it on regular basis alongside WPCentral) ! looking forward to your next article

This intro's kinda late isn't it? Could've swore I've already seen half a dozen articles by Simon, that Ready Steady Bang review was great, would've never given such a simple looking game a second thought.

I just want to know if you'll be considering apps' permissions before you recommend them. Too many times I've read about a great app here, then I go to install it, only to find it asks for nearly all possible permissions, most of which it shouldn't need. Identifying incoming phone calls, sending SMS messages, etc.
