Important Group Update & Thursday's Event
I have an important announcement about the direction of this Meetup Group. We will be expanding the scope of this group beyond the Android Platform to everything mobile related. This could potentially include content covering Android, iPhone, Window Phone 7, BlackBerry/RIM, Bada, WebOS, and other platforms, as well as cross platform content, platform agnostic content, hardware related content, and anything and everything mobile related. Future meetups will include members from other Plug and Play mobile groups and mailing lists.
Our next meetup will be an informal two hours of networking between a wide range of people from the Silicon Valley mobile ecosystem. I will briefly discuss the group going forward, ask the community what you would like to see more or less of (demos, presentations, etc), and announce a few things going on in the Plug and Play mobile ecosystem. Plug and Play will start offering access to test devices through our partners. We have also partnered with Samsung to do a series of events on their new Bada platform. Positioned toward a broader market, Bada is off to an impressive start with 1,000,000 units sold in just 4 weeks.
I would like to get more community involvement going forward. Please attend Thursday's event to share your thoughts and opinions on what format and content you would like to see going forward. We can't promise anything, but we would like to hear from you.
