xdadevcon promo

It seems like just yesterday we were picking Manchester, UK as the location for xda:devcon ’14, and like only hours ago we all arrived to begin setting up. Now with almost a week gone from the event, I thought it time to reflect on the great time we had.

Friday was a flurry of activity as we arrived at the hotel and started getting the Sponsors sorted with their locations, and the early registrations hooked up with their badges and loot bags (with a few of them ending up quite full by the end of the weekend).

Newcomer To The Mobile Marketplace, Spur, to Sponsor XDA:DevCon ’14


Some might say that the mobile marketplace is quite saturated with OEMs out there trying to make a dent. Others might also say that there are still segments which are untapped and forgotten by the larger OEMs. Marketplace newcomer Spur, a brand of Epitomical Limited, would be one of the latter. The brand represents the public face of a technology and design company that is deeply committed to inspiring both young and old, enabling education to the masses and promoting innovation.

Ubuntu Back as Sponsor at xda:devcon ’14


Ubuntu, founded in 2004, has a long heritage as the most popular Linux desktop and cloud platform in the world, but in early 2013 they announced their foray into the mobile platform, followed quickly by their announcement of Ubuntu Touch.
