XDA and Cruzerlite Team Up to Offer XDA-Developers Shirts and Cases!
With XDA membership coming up on 5 million users worldwide, we wanted to give you the opportunity to show your support for this vibrant, ever-changing community. After the BigAndroidBBQ it was obvious who we needed to work with to provide XDA members with shirts, cases, and other merchandise to help you show your love for the site. We contacted the great people over at Cruzerlite, who have done a wonderful job getting this going. Beginning today we are offering t-shirts (long- and short-sleeved as well as female-specific) and some great cases for some pretty popular devices: the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy S III (including carrier variants), Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (including carrier variants), and the Google Nexus 4.
We want to make sure that costs are kept as low as possible for all of the community, so XDA is making nothing off of the sale of the merchandise. This means that you can get some absolutely high-quality cases for your phone for only $10, and long- and short-sleeved shirts for $12 and $10. The cases are currently open for pre-order, with shipping scheduled to begin in the next 4-6 weeks. You can visit store.xda-developers.com and purchase a shirt or get your case pre-order started, and keep tabs on the other things we have cooking up with the CruzerLite team that are soon to follow.
