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.

Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
