We’ve brought you coverage of their work to bring RSD Alternatives to the Droid RAZR, and now EternityProject is at it again.

Two new XDA forum additions to mention today: the Nokia Lumia 900 and the Motorola Droid 4. The Lumia 900 is a Windows Phone 7.5 phone with similar slick hardware to what is found on the Lumia 800. The 900 is nearly identical to the 800 except that is has a larger screen and AT&T LTE capability. The Droid 4, on the other hand, is the fourth-generation of one of the first Android phones ever, the Motorola Droid. It has an improved keyboard layout and design over the Droid 3, plus it adds a faster 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP CPU.. . . READ ON »
