New Android Sub-Forums for some Windows Mobile Devices
Avid forum lurkers and F5 mashers might notice a few new sub-forums spring up today, on some of the most popular Windows Mobile devices.

This follows the success of porting Android to the HTC Vogue (Touch CDMA), for which Android ROMs are now as available and as stable as the WinMo alternatives.
