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?

XDA-Developers Exclusive: First Leaked Pics of HTC Mazaa
While most of our stories deal with discussions about apps, games, and things that go on in the world of mobile phones, we do find interesting stuff “out there” from time to time. A very generous anonymous informant provided us with the first ever pictures (high quality too!) of one of HTC’s next upcoming devices. The code name for this guy is HTC Mazaa and it will run on Windows Phone 7. Judging from the pictures, it seems to have a single LED flash light, a single camera in the back (sorry, but no 3D shot coming out of this one), and what looks like a 3.7″ screen (not sure about the type of screen). Having said that, our source mentioned that it may be loaded with DDR2, but wasn’t sure and that it is coming to Sprint within the next 6 months. Also, one last interesting detail is that there seems to be an IMEI number on the device itself, which means GSM capabilities. So, we could very well be looking at the first Windows Phone 7 world phone. There was no mention on whether this device will include gyroscope capabilities or not, but one can only hope.
For those of you who wanted to see it, here are a couple of high resolution screenshots of the device.

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?
