No, the legal profession is not about to be taken over by automatons carrying briefcases. But an increasing number of lawyers are forsaking their BlackBerrys and iPhones and moving to mobile devices using Google’s Android operating system. And now there’s a blog to help them along the way.

The Droid Lawyer is a blog written by Jeffrey Taylor, an attorney in Oklahoma City, OK. Through the blog, he provides tips and techniques for using an Android-powered device in a law practice.

In recent posts, he has reviewed DroidLaw, an app that runs legal-reference materials; shown how to create PDFs on an Android device; and explained how to take screenshots on an Android tablet to use in a deposition.
