Samsung and Official CM7 Support

Have you ever imagined to have an “official” ROM in your Samsung Galaxy S II made by Cyanogen? Well, that may become a reality very soon. XDA member MartyLK pulled our attention of an article found on the Internet earlier today where “apparently” Samsung is becoming more friendly with the developer community. According to the article, CyanogenMod will receive SGS II devices to work on a CM7 build. Moreover, another member from teamhacksung – who brought you CM7 on the SGS- mentions that the four included on the team will get a device as well.
Perhaps this should be followed by other brands in order to create a real link between manufacturers and developers, one that will bring direct benefits to the end user. On the other hand, it may only be a strategy to sell more SGS II to devs.
What do you think? Please give us your comments.

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
