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?

Theme The Matrix for WM
The well known movie of The Matrix makes its way to your Windows Mobile device. XDA member sponge_worthy presents this full theme for Sense with Cookie Home Tab 2, psShutXP, S2U2, and Thumbcal with dialer and wallpapers included. This was tested on the Rhodium but should work on any WVGA device with an exception on the dialer, which is having some bugs in other devices. We know MS is trying to kill WM but there are still many members using it and some of them will prefer it over other operating system options because its capability of personalization stuff and its simplicity. So probably, we will have WM for a while!.

[THEME] The Matrix – CHT2/Dialer/Thumbcal/Resco uploaded – Sense coming soon
Ok. I’m polishing off my Matrix theme. I have most of it done, but tweaking some things here and there. I hopefully will release most of it by Friday.
First off is the dialer. I will say that I have a Tilt2(Rhodium) and cannot test on other devices. I currently use an Energy Rom with Co0kie Home Tab 2.0 installed. The dialer works for me and I hope it works for you. My other themes seem to have a problem with the dialer for the HD2(Leo). I’m trying to work those problems out with some other users, but this cab might work for you.
Finally, don’t hold me responsible if something goes wrong with your phone. Like I said, it all works for me on my Tilt2.
You can find more information in the theme thread.

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...
