    A lot of people probably already suggested this before but just in case...

    I'm sure some people here might be interested in iPhone and iPod discussions so I think an iPhone/iPod subforum should be placed under "Other System Discussions" or at least under the "Other Consoles" section. After all, iPhone developers are rising in number and jailbreaking opens a window of opportunity for many people.

    Not only that, but I can see an Essentials topic for both iPhone/Touch games and applications, of which a variety are free to begin with.

    At the least, a subforum wouldn't be too bad, somewhere.

    Then why do we have a PSP section [​IMG] Crap, Zero beat me too it [​IMG]

    I think it would really depend on how many people would be willing to post in it, but could be a very good idea.

    Maybe start it off as an independent "Other Console" sub-forum? I mean, the iPhone/iPod do have quite a few competent developers.

    As all was stated already, we're not just a GBA site, we're a gaming community through and through. I mean, we do have a Sony and Microsoft board, as well as the Other Consoles/Oldies too. Why not shoehorn something about the iPhone/Touch in there?

    I mean, if I were to ask a question about, say, a game recommendation, where would I post? Computer Systems? Other Consoles?

    I dunno, seems like a good suggestion.

    The 2nd Gen iPod Touch just got hacked so... the more reason to add an iPod Touch/iPhone forum. [​IMG]

    how about just a "mobile telephones" board. for android, windows mobile, and palm OS users as well as iphone users.

    makes more sense, I don't think a iphone section would get enough posts on its own

    I would see this going as a General Phone section for not just iPod and IPhone but other phones. [​IMG]

    PSP is a CONSOLE and gaming system by default

    IPOD/IPHONE is either a MUSIC PLAYER or a PHONE BY DEFAULT!

    if we have an IPOD/IPHONE section then we would have to have a CREATIVE ZEN section and an N95 etc section it just wouldn't work!

    My k800i can play games and emulate nes and GB games but I don't come to a games console forum to talk about J2ME stuff I'm a member of several phone sites for that!

    if you want dedicated sections for IPOD/ITOUCH maby join an APPLE FORUM [​IMG]

    But people can play games on them and there are homebrew developers. (And it's a lot more popular than a Creative Zen or the k800i.) [​IMG]

    A general cellphone forum could work but the iTouch/iPhone would probably be the most dominant force.

    I don't know what to call it, but there should be one of those sections. Maybe an Apple section? Then add the phones and etc. under there. Or just a Cellphone forum and a Mp3 forum?
