A dedicated Sony Xperia Z forum before Asus PadFone 2? I'm disappointed for the first time in XDA. There have been a LOT of requests for a separate forum for our lovely device that is already out in many parts of the world. And now you make a forum for a device that isn't even out yet!

The PadFone is very expensive for what it is, and has failed to capture the interests of developers. The Xperia Z already has developer interest. We add devices based on development potential, and as of yet we've not seen anyone who is in a position to develop that is interested.

You seem to forget that this site is for developers, does not matter how many 'normal' users have a device its all down to the amount of developers that are interested in developing for a device

Guessing none of the mods are getting one and then there is no need to make a forum. From the request thread this have been much more sought for that the Sony. Ohh well.

The PadFone series has had a recurring issue of not attracting developer attention, due to being more expensive than other similar products.

There has been no real developer interest that I'm aware of. That's why there's no forum.

and these?

http://www.modaco.com/forum/689-asus-padfone-2/

Please

Do not think it's that difficult to create a forum for padfone own 2, no industrial and other amounts, but there is interest!

And with your help, and creating a forum of their own, surely that would give him a push ...

And just to be specific, tablet + phone 700E. is cheaper to buy a phone and a tablet separately ...

thanks

regards

Tbh I got a nexus 10 and phone for much less than 700 EUR...

I looked at the looked forum, seems a dead device... There are 6 threads. But if we add a device, mods must be assigned, and various other things done. As such, we don't add nearly as many niche devices as users would like.

I am afraid you've not really showed interest - do you have, for example, an established CM maintainer who has got source built CM running? These are the kinds of things that show developer interest
