I’m launching the $50/month ARMdevices.net Early Access Channel where you can get Early Access to hundreds of videos before they get released (one every 8hrs) at ARMdevices.net, especially useful during conferences like at the current Hong Kong Fair when hundreds of videos are filmed and uploaded.

The priority is to upload all the videos to the paid channel as soon as they get filmed, they will then get titles and descriptions later once they get published to the main http://youtube.com/charbax public free channel and posted here on ARMdevices,net

Subscribers to the ARMdevices.net Early Access channel can also get direct support from me through direct messaging on the YouTube channel, I can offer to answer you at least one of your messages per month (5 minutes per month).

Nokia X Android Store, Nokia services replace Google Maps, Notifications and In-app Payments

Posted by – April 10, 2014

All Android app developers are invited by Nokia to change a few things (swaping Google services with Nokia services) to submit all Android apps in the Nokia Android App Store. For now Nokia is avoiding to try to support the Google Mobile Services (GMS), and instead requires that all Android apps be ported to Nokia’s Services for Location using Nokia Here Maps instead of Google Maps, for Notifications also going through Nokia Notifications system instead of the Google Notifications system and then for in-app payments Nokia has its own non-Google payment system that app developers are required to use if they want their apps to work on Nokia X Android Store.
