XDA TV at the Big Android BBQ!

Last weekend, Azrienoch and SassiBoB of XDA TV went to the Big Android BBQ and now want to share some of the good times with everyone. We see more interviews with HTC, many friends in the XDA family, some exhibits and giveaways, and AdamOutler and connexion2005’s presentation of the Unbrickable Mod, featuring a conversion of a Samsung Captivate to a Nexus S.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the BBQ, and an especial thanks for the hard work by the hosts and sponsors. We can hardly wait until next year! Check out the video!

P.S. Keep an eye on the Portal over the coming days: we’ll be giving away the XDA-Developers banner (it’s huge!), signed by well over 100 XDA members and developers.
