CES 2013 Unveiled Shows No Android Love

International CES begins officially on Tuesday with the main event that everyone talks about, where exhibitors from around the world come to peddle their wares. There are press conferences on Monday, and to top it off, last night they had a pre-press event called CES Unveiled.

AT&T Unveils Six New LTE-Enabled Android Devices

Up until recently, AT&T's Android offerings have been somewhat lacking compared to the other major American carriers.
