Get Your Special xda:devcon ’14 Hotel And Conference Rate While It Lasts
By now you’ve definitely heard about XDA’s annual xda:devcon set for September 26-28 in Manchester, UK. What you may not know is that you have until the end of August to get the special rate we’ve negotiated with the conference venue, the Park Inn Radisson, at an amazing price. That means the discounted hotel rate, a savings of almost 40%, will expire, along with our special conference package including the hotel room AND the conference ticket, a savings of 10% off of the combined package. Once that happens you will need to purchase both your hotel room and the conference ticket separately at their regular prices.
Now don’t fret, you still have time to take advantage of the special rate and make sure that you’re set to participate in the following:
- Food and beverages for all conference attendees
- Interactions with companies like Ubuntu, Sony, MediaTek and more
- Great sessions and workshops on Robotics, Open Source, Wearables, Android and Alternative OS’s from some amazing speakers
- Over £4000 in giveaways
- And more still to be announced
Make sure to take advantage of our special ALL INCLUSIVE package pricing of £250 before August 31.
If you live nearby and don’t need a hotel room, the price for the conference ticket is only £100.
Visit xda:devcon for more information, and see you in Manchester!

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
