Mobile Phone Forums Review

24 November 2006

Before I begin, this post is a sponsored post. I am a member of Review Me, a program that advertisers use to raise awareness of their websites. I am required to acknowledge that this is a sponsored post, but I will give an honest review. I.E. I am not required to give a positive review, if I don’t feel the site deserves it. Ok, on to business.

Mobile Phone Forums is a forum website ( I bet you couldn’t see that coming ) that is relatively new. There are a total of seven different forums that you can post in, including the Lounge area where anything goes. The other forums are : Phones, Networks, Extras, Accessories, News, and of course, Introductions. Currently there aren’t any subforums, which is a good thing considering the size of the site. Creating subforums too early in the development of a forum site is a big mistake – it spreads out posts too much, and makes it look like there’s very little activity going on. Besides, subforums can always be added later as needed.

One of the interesting points about this site is the News forum. I think at some point, they should break out this forum as a blog instead. That way, the posts inside can be organized by category, and navigation would be much easier. Plus, it would allow the site owners to add things like a storefront very easily if they decide to. Chitika has a great offering in this area.

There is a great deal of information to be found on Mobile Phone Forums. I’m a fan of new mobile forums – some of the very old forums tend to get stale. Newer forums like this one tend to be fresher, and with a more active readership. If you haven’t had an opportunity, go check out their site – it’s worth a bookmark.
