Merry Christmas, Phandroids (Favorite Gift?)!


robot-christmasI just wanted to take a moment to wish all our Christmas celebrators a very Merry Christmas. I’ll be celebrating with my family as I know Kevin, Quentyn, Tyler, Talton, and many others will be as well.

Just a warning: you won’t see much news activity over the next day or two, but I’m sure there will be a TON of people with shiny new Androids visiting our Android Forums. We’ve got a forum for pretty much every Android you can imagine including a Galaxy Tab Forum, Google TV Forum, Nexus S Forum, EVO 4G Forum, Droid Pro Forum, NOOK Color Forum… I mean you want it, we’ve got it… or we’ll make it!

So come on over, introduce yourself, and join in the conversation! Oh… and have a Merry Christmas!

PS: What’s the best gift you received? How about gave?
