With XDA being a community of Android enthusiasts, it is not uncommon to see lots of bashing on Apple's iPhone here. There are different reasons for the hate, but we'd like to hear your number one reason for not going with the iPhone. Let us know your thoughts below!
Forums Added for the Moto 360 and LG G Pad 10.1
We recently added forums for two new devices here at XDA. The first is perhaps the most anticipated addition to the Android Wear lineup, while the second is a budget-friendly 10-inch tablet from LG. We are of course talking about the Moto 360 and LG G Pad 10.1.
First up, we have the Moto 360. This upcoming smartwatch is Motorola’s entry into the Android Wear world. Although we don’t know much about its hardware specifications, the device is set to make a rather significant splash in the smartphone world thanks to its stylish, circular face. We do, however, know that the 360 will feature Qi charging and will likely retail for significantly more than the other two Android Wear offerings.
Next up, we have the LG G Pad 10.1. Despite naming convention similarities to LG’s G Pad 8.3, this larger device bears little resemblance to its smaller sibling. Instead, the 10.1 is more similar to the recently launched G Pads 8.0 and 7.0. As such, the G Pad 10.1 features a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 gig of RAM, and a 1280×800 display. Pricing has not yet been announced, but given the specifications, we can’t imagine this will break the bank.
Is the Moto 360 the Android Wear smartwatch you’ve been waiting for? Are you looking for a functional tablet like the LG G Pad 10.1 that won’t break the bank? Let us know in the comments below, and then don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums below to get started:
