XDA Tablet Z Development Competition Results Are In
Confucius say, “All good things are difficult to achieve…” How’s that for beginning the announcement of a Grand Prize winner for the XDA Tablet Z Development Competition? It would be completely accurate, given the nature of the competition. We first accepted entrants into the competition where they told us how they would use the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and its many features in a new development project, with 10 being chosen from that list. Then, we gave them a Tablet Z to begin working on their project, with voting by the community to begin at the end of July looking for two winners (a community-voted winner and an XDA picked winner). Now, we’re pleased to announce the following winners who will each receive a Sony NEX-6 camera, courtesy of Sony.
So without further ado, we give you:
Congratulations to each of these winners. We look forward to seeing bigger and greater things out of both of them, especially given they have some new hardware to work with.

While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
