CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 Here, KitKat-Based CM11 Soon!
The CyanogenMod team is well known for breaking barriers by supporting abandoned devices and releasing feature-packed ROMs that maximize the user experience. In the middle of August, the CM team pushed the first nightlies of Android 4.3, known as CyanogenMod 10.2, to their servers. Now, not too long after the launch of Android 4.4 KitKat, the CyanogenMod team has started to merge the 4.4 code into their Github repositories.
Most known features from Jelly Bean will survive the rebase without major problems. Unfortunately, some unique goodies from Google, such as the new launcher and phone application, will likely require a bit more of work to be included. The CyanogenMod team announced that the process has started, and we should see some brand new CM 11 builds on many key devices soon. The list of supported phones and tablets is yet to be known, but most popular devices will likely gain official support.
The team also posted to their blog that CyanogenMod 10.2 is now at stage M1, which is a “bridge” between nightlies and a stable release. According to the blog, only the M2 stage separates CM 10.2 from being considered stable. Meanwhile, visit the development forums and keep an eye out for new builds from the CM team!

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
