    The android os deserves its own subforum.
    it is indeed used in handhelds, but so iPhone has its own subforum.
    is this blantant support of macintosh?
    well... i doubt it actually, but the matter still stands that many users of gbatemp own an android device.
    android is its own os at that, and as such has a plethora off applications and issues.
    i feel that the fact android doesn't have its own subforum is sad indeed.
    please gbatemp gods: make an android subforum

    (if you support this movement please give this thread a reply)

    Yes. Since FileTrip also has its own section, which has way to less stuff on it btw. I think the forums should also.

    If there's one for iPhone, I don't really see the harm in having one for Android.

    Wrong forum, should be in Suggestions.

    And no, I don't think it does.

    I say why not? If iStuff gets their own section, Android deserves it too.

    (Wait, wut? Brian's back?)

    I also support this. The number of Android-related topics have increased recently, but mostly after the boards were restructured and iOS had already received a subsection.

    Also, the third poll option is pointless. There's a big "Show Results" button. Right next to the Vote button.

    I'm a diehard android fan and user (I'm posting from it now), but I don't think that there's enough non-store development or technical issues or games in general to warrant a forum of its own.

    Now symbian...

    But I do know - I'm running CyanogenMod. I still don't think there's enough to validate the existence of a forum.

    does that mean that theres enough related to iOS to warrant its own forum?
    i feel that there is enough in the way of android to equal symbian or iOS...

    Besides the fact that I am an android user myself, I think there is sufficient cause to warrant an Android section on the temp.

    Why can't we just have a SmartPhone section?
    And then branches in that for the variations?

    Smart phone section would be good, with iOS and Android sub forums.
