CM7 Now Available for Tattoo
It seems that the infamous Gingerbread CM7 rom keeps on making its way through the world of mobile devices. Recently, the Epic 4G received the honor of joining the group of devices capable of running this rom. Now, thanks to the efforts of XDA member KalimochoAz, one of the first Android devices joins the CM7-GB club. This is a full featured rom, with most features working right out of the box, including but not limited to camera and FM radio. A slew of options and features are available that will make any CM regular user feel right at home in this new rom, such as the ability to undervolt and overclock.
Needless to say, there may be some bugs present, but aside from that, the port seems to be fully functional. If you own a Tattoo, please take this new port for a ride and leave some feedback for the dev if you find any bugs.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
