Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
Xperia X10 Gets ICS Port
Looks like the end of the year is not coming without joy for thousands of people and members of the xda community. In this particular case, we see that the Xperia X10 owners are getting their hands on the future of Android a little early in the game. Sony devices getting unofficial updates is particularly a joyous occasion as they are normally, along with Motorola device owners, among the last to normally get their hands on any kind of useful ports, mainly due to the ridiculous locks placed on these devices by manufacturers. Despite all this, the great devs on the X10 are able to bring you the best of the latest from Google. XDA Recognized Developer zdzihu has just released an alpha port of AOSP ICS, and as such it has only but a few things working properly. It seems that wireless connectivity is one of the major components that is still shaky due to Wifi still not being functional and 3G having trouble connecting, but the phone itself works and it seems that BT does so as well.
Unfortunately, the build is a bit unstable and cannot really be used as a daily driver. This is, as stated earlier, a work in progress and because of this may not be your best choice for a daily driver. However, if you happen to have an X10 laying around somewhere and would like to take this for a spin, please make sure that you report any and all feedback back to the dev. Have fun!
This is very early build, we’re behind other qsd8k devices but will eventually catch up

The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
