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.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
