New Android Sub-Forum for Vogue
It was going to happen sooner or later:
A poll took place throughout last week asking Vogue users if they believed that a sub-forum for Android development was needed. The polls closed with a staggering amount people agreeing to this versus 0 disagreeing. Long story short, the Vogue has its own sub-section for Android development!
For those people wondering why this was done for an older device such as the Vogue, the reason is quite simple. The development of Android on the Vogue has been paramount to all the Android development up to date for newer devices. Also, most builds are incredibly stable and blazing fast with most (if not all) features working out of the box. Some of these features are:
- Improved battery life (getting better as newer releases come out)
I am sure that if this level of development keeps up, it will certainly not be the last one!

This year, cardboard returned...
