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".
