Talk Tablets, Smartphones, Pads, and More in Our Mobile Computing Forum

Tags: ,


In partnership with our other mobile computing websites, we’ve just opened the doors on a new forum that we hope will foster more in-depth discussion about the devices we love (or don’t.) We get lots of intelligent comments on our day-to-day articles, and we think that time should be rewarded with a forum where discussion can bloom, instead of falling away as an article gets older and pushed further down the front page. Please join us!

We’ve started the new forum over at MeetMobility.com and it to covers the segments that match our three main websites. UMPCPortal for pro-mobile and PC-based handheld devices and netbooks. Carrypad for consumer mobile devices and Ultrabooknews for ultra-light mainstream laptops.

The forum continues from the old UMPCPortal forum and is already stacked with users and posts. Anyone that was a member at UMPCPortal forums is already enabled. We’ve extended the forums to cover tablets, smartphones and other mobile internet devices.

Take the chance to register and start sharing your knowledge, asking questions and finding out more about devices. The Carrypad-related section is here and it’s organised by manufacturer and device. There’s a general forum for all the other stuff. The new sections are quite fresh but we’re sure they’ll pad out nicely before long.

Forum pro’s might notice that some features aren’t enabled or optimised. We’re still tweaking the set-up so don’t hesitate to give us feedback and tips. Vbulletin is a new process for us.

We hope you get stuck in with the forums; I know Ben, myself, and all the other members of the Carrypad team are looking forward to mobile computing chat with you there.

Please help us spread the word!

Our Mobile Computing Forums are Back!

We had so many problems with the UMPCPortal forum earlier this year that I eventually had to close the forum for new registrations. After some thought we decided to completely re-build the site on a new system and today we’re readyto announce our new mobile computing forum! It’s clean, fast and has all the features you expect.

We’ve moved the new forum over to MeetMobility.com and expanded it to cover the segments that match our three main websites.

All the accounts and the 37000 posts from UMPCPortal have been migrated (all the way back to Origami in 2006!) and those that were regular members should be able to log right into the new forum and get going. Some users (those with 5 posts or less) will find themselves as ‘banned’ users. Contact us via the link at the bottom of the forum and we’ll get you up and running in no time. Unfortunately we had to lock out thousands of spam accounts and ‘real’ users will have got caught up in that process.

Forum pro’s might notice that some features aren’t enabled or optimised. We’re still tweaking the set-up so don’t hesitate to give us feedback and tips. Vbulletin is a new process for us.

We hope you get stuck in and enjoy the forums. Ben and myself are looking forward to mobile computing chat with you there.
