Seems like the iOS and Android have grown enough as gaming platforms to get their own forum area.

There's an iOS deal thread in the deals area that's been super active and contains discussion of games in addition to deals, and Windows 7 Phone thread in the 360 forum area and a long Android thread in Off Topic (probably a deals one too).

Seems like it would make sense to just have a Smartphone/Tablet area to contain all these threads and to have an area for threads about specific games etc.

I definitely think we need a mobile device forum.

It's been asked before, but hopefully now that its actually grown a whole lot more, it will be more likely that we get it.

Absolutely in concurrent. We've need such a section in the forums for a while now.

Yes, we definitely need a Smartphone forum, and maybe subforums for the 3 major OSes: iOS, ANdroid, and WP7.

Agreed. I've thought that we've needed this for a while, actually. At this point, smartphones have become as legitimate a gaming platform as any other game system.

I agree. AT least something for the smartphones as they routinely have sales now. Having some discussion about the indie titles being released may also help CAGs find some of those hidden gems.

Agreed. CAG needs a designated "Mobile" forum.

I recently added a "Mobile" forum to my community site due to demand. I could only imagine the demand on CAG is 1000 fold.

yup, not the first time this has been suggested.

but mobile gaming is even bigger now. android and app store have games that sell in the millions, not to mention features like Game Center with online multiplayer and achievements.

We definitely need a "Mobile" forum.
