[Update: ASUS ZenWatch 2 Too] Google Store Finally Recognizes The Built-In Speaker Of The Huawei Watch — Android Wear Update Imminent?

Transformer Pad TF701T Leaps From Android 4.4 To 5.1 Via CyanogenMod 12.1 Nightly Builds, Xperia M Gets Marshmallow

The Asus Transformer line used to be a stalwart of Android tablets, and 2013's Transformer Pad TF701T was no slouch. The device had a beautiful 2560×1600 display that still holds up today, and like all previous Transformer devices, it had a detachable keyboard. It was intended as a productivity machine, but like all Android devices, the manufacturer only provided a couple years' worth of updates. The tablet went from Jelly Bean to KitKat, and there it stayed.

Fortunately custom ROMs have a way of breathing new life into old devices.
