    I am a strong believer that there needs to be a new section for mobile/portable devices.

    devices such as smartphones, tablets, tiny little android computers in a usb dongle that you can plug into a TV to play angry birds on your 52" TV.





    Smartphones/devices can be classed as tech. we have the Android club in the club forum but there are members there who wish to be able to debate this tech and also the software that goes with this tech in the forums rather then in a club,

    so I humbly request that a new section for smartphones/tablets/PDA's be added and split into possible relivant subsections...

    Android - A place to discuss all things Android, both hardware and software, a place we can talk about our apps and roms.

    Windows 8 - for those of TPU who own a windows 8 nokia or HTC handset - there are a few out there.

    (Optional) Apple - to discuss Apple related devices/software - must be heavily moderated to prevent bashing.


    So those are my proposals and I wish for the android clubhouse to be taken out of the club section and placed in a more suitable part for the forum (and not general nonsense for you mods who like to troll out there) where it can florish

    At the moment I think all you can do is comment per thread. Not sure on the plans for a forum, you need Kreij, BTA, or w1zzard to answer that.

    I think this was the solution from the last time this section was wanting added;)

    For now, if you have a specific mobile device question, you could use General Hardware for that.

    currently we have no plans for a forum. we do have plans for reviews (when it's done, sometime in 2013)

    Well, if there are no plans for a forum over at NPU I'd throw my vote towards a new forum section. Not that it matters or this is a democracy - just sayin'.

    +1 on a mobile forun, but no subforums.

    EDIT: If you make a forum for that I will make a thread for my newly aquired Palm Vx. It's great.
