Nexus, Ice Cream Sandwich, and a Contest to win an HTC Amaze 4G

Today, after listing off forum announcements, and SassiBoB’s recap of XDA TV, Azrienoch looks at the abusive relationship between Motorola and Verizon, and Motorola’s wise decision to unlock the international Droid RAZR. He also shares his thoughts on Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich and Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, and why both are less than ideal moves for both of these industry giants. Lastly, we introduce a contest called The Developer Challenge–a race to build an app to win a device. Click on to see the video and for more information about the contest.

–Developer Challenge–

The Prize: HTC Amaze 4G

The Objective: Be the first to build an app that saves phonecall transcriptions.

Required Features:
-The app must at least attempt to identify the people on either side of the phone call so that the transcript reads like a chat log.
-The app must provide the a default option menu to have every call transcribed, only transcribe calls I make, only transcribe calls I receive, or to choose to enable transcription for each call to turn transcription on/off .
-It must let me choose a default, either to save the transcripts by emailing them to the user’s email, or save them as a text file on the SD card.

Rules:
-All of the Required Features must be provided in the free version on the Android Market. (Having a paid version as well is fine, as long as all the Required Features are available in the free version.)
-Any apps that your app requires to run must be free.
-If you submit your app and it does not have all of the Required Features, it cannot win until it does.
-When your app is ready, make it live on the Android Market. Post a thread about it on XDA-Developers. Then contact azrienoch at http://www.twitter.com/azrienoch, or https://plus.google.com/100062540864597103249.
-The first person or team to make this app with all those requirements, put it live on the android market for the public, and send me the link, wins.
-Anyone whose country of residence allows to receive a package from the US the size of the HTC Amaze 4G’s box is eligible to win.
-If there is no winner one month after this video’s posting, the HTC Amaze 4G will be reassigned to a new Developer Challenge.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

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...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
