I think our help-center need some minor phrasing updates. Checking e.g. the "on-topic" page:

  • Android-independent phone questions, such as "Does Carrier X have prepaid plans?"

(emphasis mine), we should have "phone" replaced by "device" in most cases. Tablets are around for quite a while now, and even smart watches are running Android. Above example could lead to the conclusion that "Android independent tablet questions" are OK :)

While on this, and again with the current example, I'd even suggest checking the examples given, to make it more clear. IMHO "Android independent" doesn't only refer to carrier plans, but also to device-hardware things, like "what kind of GPS chip is built into X".

    I s/phone/device/ and wait for more input in form of answers regarding the example questions. – Flow Feb 11 '14 at 12:17
  • Shall we open separate questions for each area? And if so, per page or pare question on the page? – Izzy Feb 11 '14 at 12:48

    Does it need "phone" or "device"? Could it just be "Android-independent questions"? – GAThrawn Feb 11 '14 at 14:02

    Good point. Removed 'device'. – Flow Feb 22 '14 at 2:49
  • @Flow Thanks! Then this Q can be marked "completed" I guess :) – Izzy Feb 22 '14 at 9:46

Changed to just "Android-independent questions".
