More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Meego Porting Project for the HD2
The device with many faces, the HD2, has seen ports of quite a few OS’ in the past few months. We have seen WP7 successfully booting, Android running seamlessly, Ubuntu, as well as a few Windows OS (using emulators). Well, as it turns out, this device will be taken a step further because according to XDA member pack21, there is a project that has been started, by the same people who brought you Android and Ubuntu to your HD2, to try and port MeeGo to the HD2. Not a whole lot has been done yet, but this project is alive and kicking (and in fact, it is underway for the Nexus One).
Just imagine having the chance to do a true multi-boot between 4 different OS systems as soon as you turn on your HD2. Again, the project is in very early stages, so asking for ETA should be out of the question. As with everything in life, good things come to those who wait. So, stay tunned…
I knew this is not about Android Development, but HD2 XDA, dont have another part to post about other SO developments.
I have read today in irc, that Cotulla, NetRipper and Dcordes, are going star today the project of porting Meego to HD2.
Lets see who gona have the meeGo on device, HD2 or Nexus(who start as well a project).
I would love to see meego in my HD2.
You can find more information in the port discussion thread.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
