Which tags should we use for the upcoming tablet releases? We didn't really talk about the classification when the phone was announced which led to some confusion, so I figured I would ask early.
The mobile, phones and tablet tags are all used for other things (interacting with phones and graphics tablet input, etc) so I don't think commandeering them is a great solution. Even in combination, it's not a great solution.
I'm fairly confident that the "product" is called Ubuntu Touch now, so I suggest we release mobile back into the wild (or nuke it for being too ambiguous) and migrate everything Touch-related to ubuntu-touch (assuming this is its product name).
We will need a way to differentiate between using phones and tablets with Ubuntu (as in, syncing with your Android phone or Tablet for example), and as Ubuntu (devices), that is, with Ubuntu as the OS.
ubuntu-desktop (yes, Ubuntu-Desktop) for desktop related questions (that are not applicable to mobile devices). Since we assume this, it would not be needed.
I admit that this suggestion is not without flaws. We already have been working hard to kill the ubuntu-desktop tag, but in the light of things, we may need to revive this tag because it is one of the 3 form factors and users will need to ask about it.
However, this would potentially introduce minor (potentially major) tag chaos when users begin using it for questions that don't need it.
P.S. customary cat picture.
How about this:
- mobile for Tablets and Phones that come with Ubuntu pre-installed or not and for any other general mobile device.
- phones for Phones that come with Ubuntu pre-installed (Explained in the info about the tag when used)
- tablet for Tablets that come with Ubuntu pre-installed (Explained in the info about the tag when used)
