Non-HTC Forums Now Available at xda-developers.com!
As most of you know XDA has historically been an HTC-only site. But due to overwhelming requests from our users, and the fact that there are a lot of really interesting non-HTC Android and Windows Mobile devices out there nowadays, this has changed.
We’ve begun by adding a small selection of new non-HTC devices to the site. This first phase is complete, and we now have forums for the Acer Liquid S100, neoTouch S200, Toshiba TG01, and the Samsung Omnia 2009 devices. Depending on how the activity fairs in these new forums, we may or may not continue this roll out.
We hope you enjoy using the new forums. If there are any developers out there that are willing to step forward to help develop for these new devices, I’m sure that the community would be highly appreciative.
You can find the new forums here:

It's a slippery slope...
