More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Droid Incredible 2 and Droid Charge Forums Added
Verizon subscribers will rejoice on the fact that the awaited Droid Incredible 2 is almost here. Acclaim by many as one of HTC’s best devices to ever hit the big red, the DInc 2 has made its way into the world of XDA. And considering the popularity of its older brother, wew expect that there will likely be lots and lots of good stuff going for it. Some of the main specs include a larger screen, sitting at a large 4 inches, an 8 megapixel camera with HD capabilities, and much more.
Also, the Droid Charge seems to have made its way over here. This new 4.3 inch beast by Samsung seems to be something to be reckoned with. This is Verizon’s second 4G LTE enabled device and the specs are nothing short of impressive with an 8 MP camera with LED flash (thank you Samsung for realizing that phones need flash for cameras to work in conditions other than bright daylight), 720p recording, a beefy 1 GHz processor, and more. According to some early adopters and online blogs that have had a chance to test it, the battery seems to die much quicker than expected (much like the Thunderbolt), but once tweaks start coming in, that is bound to increase.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
