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.

Forum Redesign Goes Live for Everyone!
Thank you to everyone that participated in the forum redesign open beta. We received a lot of very helpful feedback that went a long way in helping us squash bugs and make the new template more visually attractive.
Starting on Friday (25 June), everyone will see the new forum redesign by default. If you don’t like the redesign, or if it’s causing you trouble, you catch switch back to the legacy XDA design by hitting the link in the top notification bar (see attached), or by scrolling to the bottom of any forum page to change the theme manually. For those of you seeing the new design for the first time, be sure to check out jake044’s walkthrough of the new design which explains where everything is.
The new theme is still not 100% perfect, and so please continue to report bugs in the bugs thread. And because we’re still having some development issues with Opera Mobile and IE6, users that access the site with either browser will be redirected to the old theme.
We really hope you enjoy using the new theme. As mentioned, it was many (many) months in the making.

In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
