We officially launched AndroidCommunity.com two months before the first Android Phone (The G1) hits retail. Between Aug to Dec 2008, we have grown into the leading Android platform community with over 100k posts and close to 15k members. I want to thank the AndroidCommunity staffs (moderators, knowledge base maintainers, and admins) for keeping the community running smoothly. Last but not least, the members that make it a great place to converse and interact in intellectual discussions. Looking forward to bigger growth in 2009.

Building an active community is a daunting task and many times we scratch our head to figure out what made a community successful. Android Community is our fastest growing community site; and credit goes to the team of droids for making it happen.
With the big push of first Android device from T-Mobile and HTC (The G1), we gain at between 150-300 droids (that’s what we call our members) and 2000+ posts daily. Android Community is not only a forum, but also a social medium for Android platform users; hence conversations on the community go beyond Android itself.
According to Quantcast, AC served roughly 3.6 million pageviews each month and that is some serious number for a site that has been running less than four months. With only the first Android device out, we are expecting rapid growth in coming months following the extensive flow of new devices to the market.
With the additions of Android Community to R3 Media Network, we are dishing out almost 8 million pageviews monthly and it’s a very good growth rates for us in this coming quarter.
So if you have not visited Android Community, you might want to hop over there for a visit; once you become a droid, you will stay a droid. Are you ready to evolve?
It was a fun weekend and our Android Community party had a pretty good turnout in Dallas. Got to meet some cool people at the party, there were Jason from Big In Japan (ShopSavy), The SoftLayer guys (love them), Travis from Dallas Morning News, and many others. While we only have one G1 phone to pass around, we have plenty of booze to keep everyone happy :)
I want to thank our premier sponsors for their support – Business Asset Consultant, SmartPhone Experts, and Sandisk. We gave away a Plantronics headset, a Jabra Headset, a T-Mobile Sidekick, a WoWee Robot, and a 16GB SanDisk MicroSD. Overall, the party was a success. So if you are in DFW area, don’t miss the next one and make sure to RSVP early as we only have limited spot available.
