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?

TouchWiz 4 for the Galaxy Tab
There have been some interesting developments in the Samsung Galaxy S II universe over the past few days, most notably XDA member coolbho3000‘s guide to overclocking the device to a stable 1.5Ghz and an insane 2.0Ghz. But XDA member mssmison has come along and ported something from the Galaxy S II over for all of you Galaxy Tab users.
TouchWiz4, the launcher on the Galaxy S II, has been ported for use on the Galaxy Tab on any deodexed Gingerbread ROM’s. The installation package is for Clockwork Mod 3 and can be installed quite easily.
Not only has it been ported, but mssmison hasn’t forgotten to edit a few things to optimise it specifically for use on the Galaxy Tab, including an edited XML file to support the larger screen, the ability to set the workspace to use 6 rows and 6 columns and the ability to add 5 shortcuts to the bottom bar.

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
