Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Gets Android 4.2.1 in Unofficial CM 10.1 Nightly

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 was one of Samsung’s flagship Honeycomb devices, but with the latest focus being on Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Note 10.1, the device seems to have fallen out of favor in Sammy’s court. Not so here at XDA, though. Fortunately for the owners of the device, XDA Senior Member C-o-M has ported the latest Android 4.2.1 to the tablet in form of an unofficial CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly ROM.

Do note that this is an experimental build. Several core features such as WiFi, Bluetooth, sound, cameras, display, storage and rotation sensors work, but everything else is pretty much untested. Don’t fret, though. The ROM is a work-in-progress, and we should hopefully start seeing updates soon to fix these problems, and make it suitable enough for a daily driver.

Head over to the forum thread to give it a try for yourself.

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...
