This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

Tiny Paint Brings Simple and Efficient Drawing to Your Device
At some point in time, each one of us has probably attempted to draw something. Whether it’s doodling in a notebook, spray painting on a wall or making fine strokes on a canvas, we’ve all enjoyed it. And why not? The notion of creating something beautiful from nothing evokes a sense of pride in us and often pushes us to excel. Despite the widespread love for drawing, time hasn’t been very kind to it. In the digital age, rarely does one ever tend to sit down with a piece of paper and just draw or paint for hours on end, whether for lack of inclination or lack of time.
With an increased focus on technology, people spend long hours of the day on smartphones and tablets, and XDA Senior Member sylsau has used this as a base for Tiny Paint, a simple and efficient app that allows you to draw on your device. While there are more than a few similar drawing apps available on Android, Tiny Paint combines simplicity and efficiency with the end result being an app that is significantly powerful with features such blurring and embossing, yet delivers itself in an easy-to-use interface. Basically, Tiny Paint is simple enough to let you use it in your spare time, but good enough to keep you hooked.
Head over to the Tiny Paint application thread to get started with digital drawing. The app is free to download and relatively small in size.
