Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers. In June 2014, the Console OS team launched its Kickstarter campaign for a system that...
The Next Big [Case] and New Storefront
One of the most popular forums on XDA as of late is the Samsung Galaxy S4 and its US carrier variants (T-Mobile, Sprint and their bootloader-locked siblings on AT&T and Verizon). This is with good reason, as the device boasts top-of-the-line specs as well as pretty heavy backing from a marketing machine around the world. What is of great benefit to you, the user community, is that accessories (like cases) are interchangeable across the variants. And that’s where our partner CruzerLite comes in.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, not only have you missed some great seasons of Doctor Who and The Big Bang Theory, but you’ve probably missed the emergence of CruzerLite as one of the premier suppliers for Android-related merchandise. Back in December of last year we embarked on a great partnership with them to make XDA-branded cases and apparel, with the express desire that we not make anything from the sales, instead passing on the savings to you – the community.
That continues with the recent addition of the Galaxy S4 to the lineup of molded-case offerings from CruzerLite in black, green, and smoke. Made of scratch-resistant material, these fit like a glove and protect your precious device from all manners of perils as a result of your travels. And while you may think this type of case would cost you a pretty penny, it can be yours for $14 plus flat rate shipping of $4. That’s an extraordinary deal for keeping your expensive device in pristine condition.
But CruzerLite hasn’t stopped there. They recently unveiled our own storefront found at store.xda-developers.com, making it simple for you to find all of the XDA-related merchandise you desire all in one place. So make sure you visit the storefront and show your support for XDA and CruzerLite.

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
