More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Shooter Dump Leaked and Being Worked On.
You’d better get your umbrella out if you haven’t already because as of lately it has been raining HTC leaks. Also, while last time we thought that the HTC Kingdom was the codenamed device for the upcoming EVO 3D, it looks like we were wrong. As of today in the morning, XDA member XxXViRuSXxX along with a few others, posted a thread with links and mirrors to the latest leak found on 911sniper. This time is for the HTC Shooter, which according to the insides of the dump and its manifest, it actually is the awaited rom for the EVO 3D. Aside from the fact hat it clearly states that this will be going for the carrier, it comes bearing all the Sense 3.0 goodness that you can expect from something like this, as well as some apps that you would likely expect to see in a rom for a Sprint device like the Blockbuster app. If this is not good enough, then the fact that a port is currently being worked on, should definitely get your ORD up and running. Keep in mind hat there is nothing to flash just yet, but the dev will have something out soon. Please do not ask for ETAs.
Please take a moment and drop by the thread to help out with the port if you have anything to offer for the cause.
THANKS 911 SNIPER

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
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...
