XDA Tablet Z Development Competition Voting is Live!

Back in June, we announced the start of a unique competition here at XDA involving the latest high end tablet from Sony. And in early July, we announced the Stage 1 winners. What was to follow was a month of intense development from the 10 winners, 9 of whom are listed below (in random order). Note: only 9 are mentioned, as the 10th winner never responded.

What makes this competition even more unique, is how we’re conducting the voting. Sadly, community voting often leads to fanbois flocking to increase voting for their idol, diluting the worth of the obtained results. So in order to make sure everyone is given a fair chance at receiving a vote, we’ve done the following: The information on where to vote is not posted here. 

That’s right; it’s not posted here. Instead, you will need to go to the thread containing the list of winners and read through all of the projects. Once you have read about them, you will have the link to vote. If you can’t find it, you’ve not read about all of the projects. Do not ask for the link, and do not send it to someone else once you have found it. This way, everyone who votes will have done so after reading.

Who is eligible to vote?
Anyone who was registered on XDA-Developers before 9 AM (GMT) on July 26, 2013, and who is not a member of XDA staff. One vote is allowed per person. Accounts created after the 26th of July will have their votes discounted. Votes will be checked. This date and time was selected because it is shortly before information on the voting process was made available to competition entrants. Voting closes on Wednesday, August 8 at 19:30 GMT.

Ready to look at the entrants?
Head on over to the thread about the competition entries! The information on how to vote is contained within the thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. 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...

Phones like the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 were some of the most anticipated devices in smartphone history, and the hype surrounding the M9 and OnePlus 2 had us discussing for weeks. But for the most part, the awe has vanished.   There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
