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...

ASUS Transformer TF300T Gets 4.1.1 AOSP Jelly Bean
Jelly Bean has been rolling out across XDA at a fervent pace. Between it being released for the latest Nexus devices and developers releasing it for a variety of other devices, Jelly Bean is quickly making its way everywhere.
One of the most recent devices to get a fresh taste of Jelly Bean is the ASUS Transformer TF300T. Developed as a preview for the much anticipated CyanogenMod 10, XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD got Jelly Bean 4.1.1 working on the TF300T until CM10 was complete enough to compile from.
As is to be expected for early builds of Jelly Bean, the ROM is a little rough. About half of the main features work, and about half don’t work. The current list of working features include:
– Audio playback
And what still needs fixed:
– Audio volume (is stuck at either 0 or 50%)
– Audio recording likely
– HW Video playback (but software playback works)
XpLoDWilD has asked that users with a little bit of testing experience be the ones to flash it, as it is a rough build. The installation process is a little unique as well. Users looking to flash the ROM will have to flash it over custom recovery then flash a boot.img through fastboot before rebooting, so be sure to read the instructions carefully.
