Forum Merge Coming Up Soon: HTC Desire Z and T-Mobile G2

After some research, developers discovered that the custom ROMs for the Desire Z were able to run on the T-Mobile G2, and vice-versa. The hardware of both devices is almost identical. XDA member steviewevie suggested svetius (the user experience admin) about this and he decided to merge the forums soon.

This means that developers won’t have to start different threads for both phones – making everything just a bit easier for everyone:

I think it’s going to be a very very good thing, because after all the G2 and DZ are essentially the same phones and run the same custom ROMs, so it will be good to have everything in one place. I think it will also encourage people who develop things to check how they work on both the G2 and DZ.

Keep an eye on further updates in the general forums of both devices to see when it happens. We don’t know yet how the merge will work exactly, but we’re sure that the mods are working to get this working well. For discussion, check out the original thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
