Can we have more OS related prefixes in the alternative forum?

    It would be nice if we could have prefixes for Android and Windows in the alternative section. Those are the two most talked about, and it'd be easier to look through.

    MOD NOTE: Because of the way the Alternatives Forum was created to gather posts from the iPhone/iPad and iOS forums, to begin with we selected three prefixes. Phones/Tablets/OSes. Two different prefixes for two classes of devices and one catchall for OS related threads?

    How do you suggest extending this without losing the original prefixes?

    Phones
    Phones - Android
    Phones - Windows
    Talbets
    Tablets - Android
    Tablets - Windows
    mobile OSes

    Or

    Phones
    Tablets
    mobile OSes
    Android
    Windows

    With no concern for separating out the Android phones from Android tablets, etc...

    I like the first. It makes more sense since we have ASUS, Nexus, and the Amazon Kindle Android tablets. Then we have the Microsoft Surface, and those other manufactured Windows tablets. We *MIGHT* consider even getting rid of the mobile OSes prefixes as phone/tablet are both mobile, and there's generally not much talk about PDAs, non-iOS MP3 players, e-readers, etc.

    What about adding to the first list:

    Phones - Blackberry

    I say we just leave it to sit under the Phones category. I'm not like saying that Blackberry talk isn't welcomed, but I don't think the discussion here about the BB10, etc is large enough that it would need its own category. Every other tech place I go, the Blackberry sub forums are just dead.
