Lenovo Thinkpad Dump Available

Every time a new device comes out, we tend to either want to get it or what is included with it. Since most of us are cash strapped and cannot spend $400 – $700 dollars per device each time one comes out, we are only left with the option of trying to get what we currently have to look and behave in the same way as the original thing. For this purpose, you normally will need dumps of systems such as the one that surfaced in the Acer Iconia A500 forums for the Lenovo Thinkpad. XDA member triebstahl has posted a link to the dump in the hopes that someone would grab it and strip it of all the goodies that Lenovo packed on the upcoming tab. Whether a whole port will be required to get the UI going on other devices or not is still not clear. However, if the launcher is a stand alone like Ex GoLauncher, there should be no need for a complicated port.

Having said that, if you have the required porting skills, please be sure to pop in, grab the image and have fun while getting it to boot in other tabs.

some nice apps reinstalled and a great favorit launcher

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...

Samsung Cutting Bloat, Trimming TouchWiz

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups.
