Samsung Launches Developer Forum for Android Programmers

Samsung is taking pity on Android developers who may feel overwhelmed or lost on where to start or are in need of technical support. The solution? A new Android Developer Forum tacked onto the existing Samsung Developers website. Samsung's grand idea is to create a one-stop shop for all things Android, things like the latest SDKS, tutorial videos, and hardware and software updates.

Part of the project even includes a Remote Test Lab (RTL), in which Android developers can test their apps even if they don't own a phone of their own.
