Rearrangement of Main page: 2012

The current main page is far too long, I will be removing the majority of the devices and putting them into sub-pages (in the same manner as Legacy Devices)
I'm open for suggestion on what manufacturers to leave behind, my current list is:
  • Amazon (in theory, but will not actually be listed as there are no device pages)
  • Asus
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Hewlett Packard
  • HTC
  • LG
  • Motorola
  • Nokia in theory, but will not actually be listed as there are no device pages)
  • Samsung
  • Sony/Sony Ericsson
The criteria that I used:
  • Amazon and B&N are major android competetiors in the ~7" market
  • Asus/HTC/LG/Motorola/Samsung make up the bulk (with the exception of LG) of the worldwide market, and all manufacture/have manufactured devices directly supported by google.
  • HP due solely to the touchpad
If you believe your device manufacturer should be on the main page, but not on the above list, please provide a good reason here
For devices not listed, their logo will be left up top to direct users to unlisted manufacturers.
I wont be actually doing so until I have revamped the manufacturer device galleries.

Process mostly complete, have yet to tackle the most complex groups (HTC and samsung)
The new layout makes device manufacturers more prominent, which is a plus for minor device makers
It also (is going to) will give the most popular devices more emphesis as less popular devices are simply not listed on the front page anymore.
It's still in process of being finished -TheManii 20:12, 17 November 2012 (CST)

Rearrangement of Main page: 2013

At a future point, the main page will be pruned, a preview to this can been seen at [Main Page 32880 → 32943]
The criteria for listing pages after the pruning will be:
  1. It has it's own forum on xda
  2. It is not in the legacy/low activity section of the xda forums
  • Any devices that are not do not meet both points 1 and 2 will be removed from the main page
  • Any device families that have active forums are allowed on the main page until ALL devices in the family are no longer active forums
  • If a device is shifted from <Not listed><has an active forum><has a legacy/low activity forum>, the main page shall reflect that
  • Devices are always welcome to be added to their respective manufacturer pages regardless of status on the XDA forums
