When you think of connectivity in the Asia Pacific region, you don't automatically think of Myanmar. In fact, it was just a few years ago that they started opening up to the world once again after decades of becoming a "hermit". So you could call them a slowly waking and emerging market, in terms of communication. That makes them a prime candidate for Google to release their Android One mobile device, joining 7 other countries that are already carrying the standard, emerging market smartphone.

Dropbox finally adapts Material Design for its Android app
