So how would you like to win one from us and our friends over at Ting?

You've sure heard of Ting, the MVNO that only wants to charge you for what you use instead of offering you plans with plenty of bundled options that you may never need.

The community over at XDA-Developers is a little less voracious these days. There are a lot of reasons: an ever-expanding selection of Android phones means it's harder to make a modding nexus for each one, general improvements in hardware and software make rooting less necessary, et cetera. But those tinkerers can still get some fantastic results. Case in point: it turns out that it's totally possible to get the unlocked HTC 10, currently being sold free of contracts and carriers from the HTC web store, to operate on Verizon.

Two "pure-game apps" are coming next, based on Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem. And as the chief executive of DeNA (Nintendo's mobile development partner) told The Wall Street Journal, “Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing are both free-to-start apps.”
