FreeYourAndroid Glasgow Meetup in Two Days

Not too long ago, we highlighted the launch of FreeYourAndroid. For those who don’t remember, FYA was created by the folks at VillainROM (namely XDA Recognized Developer nprussell and Developer Admin pulser_g2) in the hopes of delivering structured information to help noobs and seasoned veterans alike.

Naturally, FYA has found great success in its mission, amassing a rather large following in the process. And how do they intend on rewarding that following? By having a meetup, of course! As its name implies, the event will be in Glasgow on May 25, 2012. It will run from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM, local time, and will be held in the Piper on the Square. In the words of VillianROM and FreeYourAndroid community member and event organizer Gary Weldon:

It seems rather strange that the Glasgow Android meetup started out as a chance for 6-8 Android Fans to meet up in the Glasgow City Centre for a few drinks and Android related banter considering where we are now.

Planned from scratch by Gary Weldon (@UbuntuBhoy) and born out of a love for socialising and all things Android, the Android Glasgow meetup is now considered an event which looks to be attended by somewhere between 30 and 50 people.

Now officially hosted by Android websites Free Your Android and Land of Droid, the Glasgow Android Meetup has support from a number of major OEM brands, Mobile Networks and Retailers alike.

Those interested should check out the event’s official website, and follow their Google+ and Twitter pages. While they’re currently at-capacity, you can still stay in the loop by visiting the aforementioned links. For those lucky enough to attend, there will be cool swag given away such as a number of XDA-Developers T-Shirts!

Which Features from Apple Watch Do You Think Android Wear Will Copy?

The Apple Watch and Android Wear are both growing platforms. Now that we've gotten the chance to see both of them in-depth, we can get a good idea of which directions the two are headed. We recently did a discussion and asked you what you thought the Apple Watch would copy from Android Wear. Today, we ask you the opposite. Which features do you think Android Wear will copy from the Apple Watch and why?
