AndroidCommunity Launch Party – Oct 18th 2008

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.
