More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Windows Phone 7 Swype Skins for Windows Mobile
XDA member lnando84 presents these new skins for your device based on Windows Phone 7 style using Swipe. Skins come in two color backgrounds: Black and White, and both are nicely designed to perfectly fit your Windows Mobile device in portrait and landscape. To make them work, you need to have Swipe installed (of course) and after installation, perform a soft reset for changes to apply.
The developer has tested them on an HTC Rhodium but should work on other WVGA devices as well.
Please leave feed back.

They work in both portrait and landscape and are available with either a white or black background.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
