We're happy to have a new baby in the HUKD family birthing today. It's a non-gendered android but we're all inclusive like that here. We decided to name it Mobot.net as it's all mobile and all robot and the domain was available.
There's a lot of mobile discussion on HUKD and a lot of interest in mobile phone deals (some would say too much when the deal page gets flooded). So we thought about ways to try and grow on that interest and make a cosy home for it.
Mobot has two main parts. There is the blog with current news, reviews, opinions and there is the discussion area which centres around phones, networks and platforms. The discussion area (you can login with your HUKD user) is much more structured than HUKD as you can filter down to handset or even network level discussion if you choose. This way each handset has a separate area which contains specific discussion on that handset, news, deals and specs.
As this is fresh out of the ether oven we're hoping you will all help us break it and fix it over the coming weeks. We're going to be working on the stability as it gets traffic but we are also fleshing out the specs area, expanding the avatar builder and improving the profile page over the coming weeks.
We'd appreciate any feature ideas or suggestions anyone has so go at it. Also if you'd like to get involved with the blog side of it please contact us as we're always looking for good writers or mobile experts to contribute (even to do a guest article one-off).
For those worried about Mobot taking away from HUKD development and bugs rest assured it is a separate team and you are free to hassle HUKD development as normal :)
Thanks already to those who have helped guide us so far and here's hoping for a spawning of Mobotniks!
