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. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
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:

There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. 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...
