Surely it wouldn't be too much of an ask to give people the ability to suggest spec edits inline in yr CMS, on the spec page in question, rather than having one long discussion thread with all the edits in it. Seems messy. At the least, if you want systematic suggestions in the format you have mentioned above, provide a custom form with the 4 fields in it?
When I say writable specs won't be online, I'm being straight up. Right now we haven't rebuilt the CMS for it for anyone -- ourselves included -- so we'd have to make any corrections by hand (carefully) in our database.
Your idea about a form, though, is quite good.
Yeah cool, I wasn't thinking about an all-in-brawl wiki-style edit-fest, and I agree that changes are something for you to action, not the community. But it'd be nice to have something that more obviously tied suggestions to specs (better than a link from this thread).
If I'm on a spec page, see something amiss, and come to this thread, I've got close to zero chance of seeing whether someone else has already made the same change suggestion. If all suggested changes were grouped together on the page in question, then people could at least see others' thoughts in context.
The community had the ability to edit specs until 2.0 rolled out. I always thought it was a strength of the site and a boon to the community.
As for the other point one sub-tread per gadget would keep spam down and make it easy to just check the top level replies.
I'll post a link to a Google Docs form to keep track of these shortly.
So... could we get memory automatically converted to the number of Ls? Maybe put it in parentheses or something?
Awesome, I have been waiting for the return of this!
Hallelujah! I've been waiting for these to come back. I don't mind that they aren't editable for the time being, I'm just glad to have them! Thanks GDGT team!
So this thread isn't for thinks like the new nook that have almost no specs?
Right, just if something is off like if you see that the Dreamcast weight is 20lbs.
It would be nice if gdgt functionality like discussions, questions etc cover specs too.
-Sony Tablet S
-Available now (released Mid September)
It's much easier for us to update specs if you give us a link to the product or press release. I've changed the availability, and set the release date to August 31, as that's the date on the press release (though availability was more later in September).
I've corrected the availability, thanks.
I've removed the dead link for the z1285 and added a direct link to the user guide. Next time, please state which exact product you're talking about.
Not sure of whether this counts as a spec or not, but the Nokia N9 is still listed as unannounced.
This thread is for incorrect specs, not missing specs, which will be added at a later date. However, I have updated the colors, thank you.
I've fixed the weight and added the extra colors, thanks.
I have seen HTC Sensation XL has not spec added here is the information I have been able to find.

As Ryan stated, this thread is for incorrect specs, not missing specs. However, I have added the size specs and a link to the official site, as well as updating the image. Thanks.
Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated the specs to reflect the release of Debian 6.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I updated the specs.
