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.
New Official Update for European HD2 – T-Mobile USA Users, Do Not Install This!
Not to long ago, there was a leak of a new official rom for the T-Mobile USA HD2. So as not to forget about the European counterpart of this wonderful device, hTC has just released an official update for the OS, as pointed out by XDA member MuratNL. hTC promises several updates, particularly in the performance department, including better handling of the processor by the system overall, which would make the whole experience more “enjoyable”. As with any new base, this probably comes loaded with updated drivers and maybe even a few updates to some hTC apps.
The only warning to be heed in here is to not flash this on your device if you have a T-Mobile USA HD2 variant. hTC describes it as “undesired” results. I call that possibly bricking the device. The update process is simple though as with any rom flash to a WM device. However, if you are not certain on how to do this, there are several guides available floating around in the forums.
Just Spotted on HTC European site:

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...
