Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen. In the coming years, manufacturers such as Qualcomm may have to face the fact that there are other companies just as able...
Free XDA T-Shirts!
Some of you may remember a while back, we were tinkering a bit with the idea of making XDA t-shirts to show off your community spirit. Well, after a while we found a relatively good vendor that sent us a few samples, so that we could evaluate how well they would be received by the community. As you can see from the screenshot, they are pretty much directed at us since no one outside of XDA will know what ORD actually means. In any case, we thought about selling these samples at a very low cost to members but we figured that instead we would give some of these away for free! As many of you are outside of the US and because we are not made of gold, the only thing we would ask is for you to pay for s&h (judging from the size of a rolled up t-shirt, it shouldn’t be more than $5 to ship this anywhere in the world, but you are free to get your own shipping quote as well). We will ship them out via USPS to keep the costs to you at a minimum as well.
The t-shirts will be given out to the first 150 people who submit this online form in which you will need to fill out basic contact information:
- XDA username;
- E-mail address that you check frequently (the tracking number will be sent there);
- Real Name (for shipping purposes);
- Shipping Address.
That is it! Best of luck! We will announce the winners once all the applications have been received.
