If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
Various Forums Added – LG Thrill 4G, Sony Xperia Neo, and HTC Jetstream
Just when you thought that we had had it with forum additions on this site, we go ahead and give you more places to play around here. In this last induction of devices into the XDA family, we are bringing one of each flavour… err, manufacturer. First, we added the Sony Xperia Neo, the latest one of the newly released Xperia family, which is a rather standard device for this day and age equipped with a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB ram, 3.7 in screen, and every possible lock that Sony can put in the bootloader (calling for devs… wink, wink). Next up we have the LG Thrill 4G, which is LG’s next iteration of 3D camera equipped devices. This one is indeed fully loaded with a full HD video out (1080p), Gingerbread, a 4.3 in screen, and did we mention the 3D camera? Last but not least, the HTC Jetstream (also known as the HTC Puccini). This will be running in the AT&T’s network in the US and sports quite an interesting package: 1.5 GHz processor, Honeycomb 3.1 (a first for HTC), a 10.1 in screen, a 1200×800 display, and Sense which is something that has been in the minds of a lot of early Honeycomb adopters.
If you have your hands on any of these devices and would like to leave a few reviews, or if you discovered something interesting about any of them, make sure that you visit the newly created fora.

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
