Motorola Proven Wrong Yet Again: Milestone XT720 Gets Froyo!

In their own site, Motorola made the statement that the XT720 would not be receiving an upgrade to Froyo and that it would remain as an Eclair-exclusive device. Little did they know that the good old people in the hacker community had been working hard to prove them wrong.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Huawei: A Giant the Western World Should Look Out For

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.
