Popular forum XDA Developers has finally decided that it is high time they started giving Indian users their due. India is the second biggest source of traffic for XDA and until now there were no forums for India-specific devices and related topics were often scattered around general forums, making it hard for both users and moderators.
“What many people don’t know is that the second largest source of traffic on XDA after the USA is actually India. And until now, we’ve admittedly done a poor job of supporting these users. We’ve never had a defined process for adding India-only devices, and when we do add them, we’ve often relegated them to our legacy/low activity template,” XDA admin wrote in a post.
XDA has now decided to open forums for 12 India-specific devices, which include mainly Micromax/ Lenovo phones and a couple of devices from XOLO and Karbonn. Here is the full list:
- Micromax Canvas 4 A210
- Micromax Canvas Turbo A250
- Micromax Canvas Magnus A117
- Micromax Canvas Doodle A111, Doodle 2 A240
- Micromax Canvas 2 Plus A110Q
- Lenovo K900
- Lenovo A850
- Lenovo A3000
- Lenovo P780
- Samsung Galaxy Grand 2
- Lava Xolo Q1000
- Karbonn A21
All India-specific forums will be accessible at http://forum.xda-developers.com/India or http://xda.in.
This move should help in more Android development for the India-specific devices. What are your thoughts, let us know in comments.
