According to engadget (citing TouchPal as well as an internal source), HTC aims to replace Swype with TouchPal as the default input method in upcoming devices, including the new HTC One M9. The official TouchPal Twitter account also tweeted the engadget article about this, further confirming the move. What prompted this move?

Sense UI 2.5 Coming to VZW Soon
The newest version of Sense UI has been available for the HD2 since released, but now the Touch Pro2 might be receiving its own version. The Touch Pro2 has been living in envy since the original 2.5 release. The ROM section of the Touch Pro2 forum is overflowing with ROMs that use 2.5, but the version Verizon is developing loses some features, but also gains some.
The Touch Pro2’s version of Sense 2.5 will lose the programs, E-reader, documents and footprints tabs. But with that loss comes the gain, the new version will most likely be completely landscape capable, so your device will not have to stay in portrait mode. The new version might also be lightning fast, because we’re sure hoping Verizon would not release something that is as slow as the current HD2 versions that the Touch Pro2 users have been using.

A new 6.5 (sorry to say not 6.5.3) VZW ROM – the big surprise was Sense 2.5
Before you ask… NO – I cannot send you the ROM – I like my job way too much to jeapordize it – please don’t bother asking.
Screenshots below show the phone exactly after the ROM flash.
The only thing installed was SOTI Pocket Controller for screen caps.
The only other thing done to this phone was connect it to my WiFi, as this is a test device, and is not active.
Screenshots have been reduced in size by 50%
One thing I did note – most of the green highlights have been replaced by gray.
There are no PROGRAMS, E-READER, DOCUMENTS, or FOOTPRINTS tabs

Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
