Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
How to Modify Your Karbonn Smart Tab 8 & 10
While it may not be possible for each and every Android-powered device out there to receive a dedicated forum here on XDA, the lesser known devices out there are more than welcome to pull up a chair and kick back in the Miscellaneous Android Development section. The Karbonn Smart Tab 8 and 10 are prime examples of this. Their specs were probably never going to attract a lot of attention from developers, but that’s not to say the devices aren’t necessarily a half decent option for the average user seeking a lower priced device.
The majority of these somewhat obscure devices will attract some form of aftermarket development, and the Karbonn tabs are no exception. XDA Senior Member ankitdaruler has collected some of the options available to Smart Tab Owners into one thread, along with instructions on how to install them. There are two custom ROMs available courtesy of Forum Member fuser-invent. One is close to stock with a few tweaks, while the other is more a custom affair. There’s a port of TWRP thanks to Senior Member ozadroid. There are also methods for rooting the device and an explanation of how to swap the internal/external storage, something which is often required on a device with a fairly small amount of internal space.
So if you have a Karbonn Smart Tab that you’re looking to tweak, this would be a great place to start. Owners of any other device lacking it’s own forum would also probably find it worthwhile to have a good old fashioned rummage through the Miscellaneous Android Development section. Who knows what you might find.

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...
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...
