Hugo Barra Describes How Xiaomi Pushes Out Weekly Builds, Turning User Feedback Into Shipped Product In A Matter Of Days

It's not all that uncommon for software companies to roll out updates on a monthly, even weekly basis, but manufacturers are typically content to improve their products much more slowly. This isn't the case with Xiaomi, the successful Chinese smartphone maker Hugo Barra, former Vice President of Product Management for Android, left Google to join a few months ago. The company ships a new batch of phones every week, partially relying on user feedback to determine what changes they should make for each group - new shipments come out every Tuesday at noon Beijing time, containing new software builds and possible minor hardware tweaks.

T-Mobile Announces Uncarrier For Tablets, 200MB Of Free Monthly LTE Data For All Compatible Devices

Earlier this month, Team Uncarrier dropped a fairly large bomb on the mobile industry by offering users access to international data roaming at no additional cost. Now, it's taken the wraps off of its newest offering, this time targeting tablet users: free data.

Judging by the wording in the PR, this plan will be available to everyone, not just those who already use T-Mobile as their primary cellular carrier:

T-Mobile is the only national wireless provider to offer tablet owners up to 200 MB of free 4G LTE data every month for as long as they own their tablet, even if they're not yet a T-Mobile customer.

Samsung To Extend Galaxy Gear Support To The S4, S III, Note II, And Other Devices Starting At The End Of October

Out of the gate, the Samsung Galaxy Gear has made for the tough sell. It's hard enough to justify dropping $299 on a watch, but it's even more difficult to shell out that much on one that only pairs with a single device. Customers who don't want the Galaxy Note 3 or aren't ready to cut the cord on their current handsets have thus far been out of luck. Of course, Samsung has been upfront from the beginning that it planned to release support for slightly older Galaxy devices down the road.
