Win a CuBox from Solid-Run

Today is Valentine’s Day! To all those celebrating, we at XDA would like to extend wishes for a day stuffed sappy heart-shaped objects, loved ones, and much mobile development.

Many of our more hardware-focused community members have heard of the Solid-Run CuBox computer. CuBox is a small, fan-less computer measuring in at approximately 2 × 2 × 2 inches. It comes with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed, but the device also supports Debian and Android, among others. It is a low-power ARM-based computer that can stream and decode 1080p content, use desktop-class interfaces such as KDE or GNOME under Linux, and do all of this in under 3 watts, with less than 1 watt standby consumption. Those interested can learn more on the CuBox product page.

In order to help promote development for the device, Solid-Run is looking to give away 3 CuBox units to Recognized Developers who come up with interesting and unique development ideas for the device.

How do I win a free Solid-Run Cubox?

Simple. First, visit the contest thread! Next, tell us what you intend on doing with the device if you are one of the lucky winners. Share with us your development ideas, provide ample details, and remember to keep things feasible. Winners will be determined by myself and XDA Elite Recognized Adam Outler.

Now for the technicalities: This contest will run from today, February 14, until next Thursday, February 21. Due to previous difficulties we’ve encountered when mailing internationally, this contest will be open to US residents (or those with proxy US shipping addresses) only. Please only submit one entry per Recognized Developer. Those with multiple entries will be immediately disqualified.

Thank you for your contest entries and for being a part of the development community! Good luck!

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
