During The HTC Utopia In Progress event, HTC discussed their work with the speakers of the M9. With Boomsound integration they aim to bring a "first class audio experience," featuring speakers similar to that of the previous HTC M8 model. As Graham Wheeler (Director of products, EMEA) and Aaron Baker (Senior Manager, Global Social Media) put it, "people are always listening to music on their phones, its an important part of the phone...

Alpha Jelly Bean ROM for the Venerable HTC HD2
Despite the phone being a couple of years old, the development community on the HTC HD2 is still vibrant as ever. Recently, we brought you news of the HD2 getting WiFi calling on ICS. This added to the feeling that the HD2 will probably keep going and going forever.
Not surprisingly, a Jelly Bean port was released for the HD2. XDA Recognized Contributor smokin901 has released a proof-of-concept port of Jelly Bean not necessarily for people to use, but to prove that the HD2 is still beastly enough to actually run it. However, XDA is a development community, so it is likely that this will end up being stable sometime in the future.
For now, though, the list of features working and not working is about on par with most other Jelly Bean releases recently. The current list of things working include:
Mobile Data 3G/2G
Sound check download page for fix ————————– Credit Bexton
USB Mass Storage ———– Credit Bexton
And not working:
Browser works but display is messed up.
Error when Installing some Apps
Google Now crashes.
There are likely to be some other things that haven’t been updated yet, as users have reported issues with system sounds and hardware acceleration. While the ROM may not be ready for daily driver use yet, it’s definitely there for any users or developers who want to try it out or help make it more stable.
