And maybe they are!

  • OEM skins same Sense and Blur are not feat away. Honeycomb module be unstoppered maker same every another promulgation of Android, and he “hopes partners module see easy re-skinning it and adding value. … We poverty to foxiness a rattling solidified base papers for everybody to pioneer on crowning of.”
