HTC Vivid, Rezound, And Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet Fora Added
As we said last time, we are getting closer to the all mighty holiday (shopping) season and because of that we will likely see a flurry of new devices coming at us from all different directions. Several manufacturers started this game a tad early, HTC and Samsung to be more precise. However, there are a few odd manufacturers who will release new devices in order to stay competitive, even if you don’t expect them to. Barnes & Noble is one such company. They just released a brand new device into their already famous Nook family of devices. This time, the Nook Color received a big brother dubbed as the Nook Tablet, which boasts a dual core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on board storage, and a low glare, quasi-180º viewing angle screen capable of 1080 playback. This neat piece of technology is aimed to be a direct competitor to the Kindle Fire by Amazon. Let’s see who wins this race.
On other news, HTC released a new Verizon device named HTC Rezound, which aside from being similar to the Sensation XE in a few areas such as the 1.5 GHz dual core processor, this one comes loaded with much heavier specs in other departments such as a boost to 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage. However, the biggest feature on this device is the HD (not qHD but actual HD) Super LCD screen with resolution of 1280×720, which really is a first for any mobile phone out there.
Last but not least, we also added a new forum for the HTC Vivid. This device is pretty much up to par with the Rezound in most departments with the exception of the screen resolution (not that a qHD screen is a bad thing). However, what it doesn’t have in the resolution department, it makes up in size. The Vivid offers a slightly larger screen at 4.5 inches (as opposed to 4.3 on the Rezound). So, if you needed an excuse to get out of your old Inspire 4G, now you got one.
If you already have any of these devices or are planning on getting one (or all 3), make sure that you visit the new fora for up to date news, hacks, tips, and more.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
