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.

Learn More about Android Business and Development at DroidSync 2014 in Mumbai
A couple of weeks ago, we announced a new initiative to better serve our Indian user base. But in addition to the new xda.in homepage, we would also like to highlight some of the most pertinent mobile news that relates to our second largest traffic source. As such, we would like to talk a little about DroidSync 2014, an Android developer and business conference that will take place early next month in Mumbai.
In a way, you can think of DroidSync as sort of an Indian Big Android BBQ. But rather than exclusively covering Android development, DroidSync 2014 also covers the business side of the Android ecosystem. In other words, it is one of the few conferences aimed at covering the entire Android ecosystem.
The conference itself is a one-day event, starting on April 5th at 9:30 am local time in Mumbai. It takes place in the Classique Club, and Early Bird registration starts at 1000 Rupees. However, the first 20 people to register between now and March 10 using the discount code “XDA-DrOIdSyNc” will receive 20% off of the registration fees.
Those looking to get in on the DroidSync action should head over to the official site to learn more. But don’t put it off, as only the first 20 users will be able to use the coupon code!

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...
