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? The CEO of CooTek, the company behind TouchPal, says it's because of their better contextual prediction and language support. If you actually look at the supported languages, you'll...
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

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...
